Presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden released a new campaign ad slamming President Donald Trump and using footage of world leaders apparently mocking him at the NATO summit this past week."The world sees Trump for what he is - insincere, ill-informed, corrupt, dangerously incompetent and incapable, in my view, of world leadership," Biden says in the ad. "And if we give Donald Trump four more years, we'll have a great deal of difficulty of ever being able to recover America's standing in the world, and our capacity to bring nations together."Advertisement
The ad was released just after Trump landed back in the US, following his trip to London for the 70th anniversary NATO summit - which appears to adhere to Biden's policy of not criticizing a president's foreign policy while they are overseas.
On Tuesday, the Canadian Broadcasting Company posted a press-pool video of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and French President Emmanuel Macron talking during the NATO reception at the Buckingham Palace.While Trudeau does not mention Trump by name, he appears to be poking fun at the US president for his impromptu press conference on Tuesday where he lashed out at Macron's characterization of the summit.
"He was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top," Trudeau said in the video, apparently talking about Trump. "You just watched his team's jaws drop to the floor."Trump responded to the video calling Trudeau "two-faced." The president canceled his final press conference, citing the fact that he had already had one, and left the summit early.Advertisement
The video was widely covered by national news media the following day, and it made a reappearance in Biden's campaign ad, describing Trump as "a president the world is laughing at."
"We need a leader the world respects," the ad read.
