Biden was speaking at a private fundraising event where cameras are not allowed — one of four such events he attended in Manhattan this week. Biden spoke at a private fundraiser where cameras were not allowed. He attended four of these events in Manhattan during this week. Biden stated that this is why he was running. Biden stated that despite the fact that we have made some progress, our democracy remains at risk. “I am running because the rights to our most fundamental freedoms, such as the right of choice, the vote, and the right be who one is, or love whomever you love, are under attack. They are being destroyed. Biden rarely mentions Trump directly in public speeches. To donors, however, he’s much more direct.

“I don’t believe America is dark and negative — a nation driven by fear, anger, and revenge,” Biden stated. “Donald Trump does. “

Biden gave a similar take on Trump to a more intimate event a couple days later, when about 30 people gathered in the the Upper East Side home of Amy Goldman Fowler, a major donor to Democratic candidates and committees.

“It looks like he is destined to be the nominee again,” Biden said, describing Trump.

Later, in a ballroom full of lawyers at the Intercontinental Barclay hotel, Biden described Trump during the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

“I have a dining room, a private dining room off of the Oval Office. “I have a dining room, a private dining room off of the Oval Office,” Biden said.

They will come later

Biden may be saving his harshest anti-Trump lines for private fundraisers because he hasn’t done a lot of other campaign events. These will be later

Biden might reserve his most harsh anti-Trump remarks for private fundraisers, because he doesn’t have many other campaign events. There have only been three public rallies where endorsements were announced. Biden, like most presidents who are seeking reelection in 2016, is not expected to start actively campaigning before next year. Karen Finney is a Democratic strategist and former Hillary Clinton presidential campaigner. She said that it was a good strategy to keep the two separate.

Finney said most Americans are not thinking much about the 2024 presidential campaign and would rather hear the president talking about things that affect their daily lives rather than politics.

“What Americans want to see right now, is to see him focused on running the country,” said Finney.

He also makes a lot jokes about his aging. He expressed his first reaction to the House Impeachment Inquiry at a Northern Virginia fundraiser last week. He often makes jokes about his perceived greatest weakness among voters, which is the fact that he’s 80. “You may have noticed that a lot people seem to be focused on my old age,” Biden said, to laughter, at the Broadway event in this week. “Well, I get it, believe me. I am better than everyone. “

He claimed that his extensive experience had made him uniquely qualified to deal with the COVID Crisis and Russia’s invasion into Ukraine. He ended with his usual optimism line, with a joke. Biden joked, “I have never been more hopeful about the future of our country in all my 800 years of service.”
