Trump Exposes Fox News-Biden Nexus

Former President Trump spent the hours leading up to Thursday’s debate in Atlanta with President Biden, venting his frustrations at both his opponent and Fox News.

In a series of posts on his Truth Social platform, Trump criticized President Biden, calling him a “threat to democracy” and expressing frustration that Fox News featured a prominent Biden campaign spokesperson ahead of the CNN-hosted debate.

“Joe Biden is a threat to democracy, and a threat to the survival and existence of our country itself!!!” Trump wrote, emphasizing his point with all capital letters.

This attack on Biden as a danger to democracy has become a recurring theme for Trump and his team, as they try to counter the Biden campaign’s narrative. Biden and his supporters cite Trump’s refusal to accept the 2020 election results, his involvement in the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021, and his calls to prosecute political opponents as evidence of Trump being a threat to American institutions.

In another post, Trump criticized Biden’s immigration policies, calling them a “NIGHTMARE FOR WOMEN when it comes to the Border and Immigration!” This suggests that immigration will be a key issue for Trump in the debate, where he plans to highlight what he views as Biden’s failures at the southern border and related criminal activities.

Biden is expected to respond by pointing to his recent executive actions on border control and may shift the focus to Trump’s controversial views on abortion, framing them as harmful to women.

Trump also took aim at Fox News in a third post, questioning why the network allows “so many Biden people, like Michael Tyler, communications director for Biden, who spewed lies with very little pushback? Amazing!!!” Fox News had featured Trump campaign deputy communications director Caroline Sunshine immediately after Tyler.

Trump frequently criticizes Fox News over some of its programming choices, and his Thursday morning post showed he was closely monitoring the network before the debate.

A Biden campaign spokesperson, Ammar Moussa, responded to Trump’s comments by saying Tyler was “living RENT FREE in Donald Trump’s head.”

The debate, hosted by CNN and moderated by anchors Jake Tapper and Dana Bash, is set to take place in Atlanta at 9 p.m. EDT and will be broadcast by most major outlets.
