During an appearance on Fox News on Thursday, contributor Dan Bongino slammed Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign ad and his legacy as a vice president.
Biden released his campaign announcement video on Thursday, and Bongino claimed that the former vice president was focusing on the wrong issues.
“Well he goes right to identity politics of course, and there’s a reason he does that,” said Bongino. “I mean think about it. Is Biden really gonna run on ‘hey, let’s just go back to the economy of four years ago,’ by the time the election comes around?”
In Biden’s announcement, he claimed that President Trump had a negative effect on the country.
“I believe history will look back on four years of this president and all he embraces as an aberrant moment in time,” Biden said. “But if we give Donald Trump eight years in the White House, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation — who we are — and I cannot stand by and watch that happen.”
However, Bongino continued to call Biden out for issues with the Obama administration, saying that he has no accomplishments to point back to.
“I mean he has nothing of substance, I mean that. What’s he gonna run on, the takeover of the student loan market in the Obama administration that’s been bankrupting it? Obamacare and that disaster? They couldn’t even get a website up-and-running. You’re gonna run on the one percent growth rate? ‘Let’s return to one percent growth,’ I mean what’s he gonna run on?”
He suggested that Biden was encouraged to follow the claims that many other Democrats have made against the president.

“So some focus group came to him and said, ‘Listen, you gotta go back to the spurious, nonsensical, ridiculous charges that Donald Trump is a racist,'” said Bongino. “It’s tired, it’s old, and I’ll be honest with you I’m a little disappointed.”
Biden currently leads the extensive list of Democratic presidential candidates in the polls, but it is uncertain if he will continue this momentum, especially with his recent controversy of inappropriate touching.
