Biden headed out of the basement and Trump campaign can’t wait

Joe Biden says he’s getting out of the house after Labor Day. And the Trump campaign will be ready to pounce.

According to the Washington Examiner:

The Trump campaign declared victory after Joe Biden said he would return to the campaign trail after Labor Day, claiming the Democratic nominee sensed his decision to stay close to home had caused him to cede ground to his opponent.

And pro-Trump super PACs are ready to make fresh ads on any gaffes or policy pronouncements as they look to scrutinize Biden and his record.

While President Trump traveled to Charlotte, North Carolina, as well as Fort Henry, Maryland, before addressing more than 1,500 people on the south lawn of the White House on Thursday, Biden appeared in several prerecorded videos and delivered his acceptance speech in an auditorium empty apart from a handful of staff and journalists.

It is part of what had been seen as the challenger’s “basement strategy,” which saw him leading his campaign via video conference calls from his downstairs studio.

But that will change in a little over a week, and Trump officials are anticipating a fresh chance to land blows on the former vice president.
