Biden Team on Trump: ‘He Should Be Far Removed from the White House’
Mitch Landrieu, a key figure in President Biden’s reelection effort, expressed strong reservations about former President Trump’s proximity to presidential power in a recent Sunday interview, highlighting the significant legal challenges Trump faces, including 91 felony charges across multiple jurisdictions. Landrieu questioned the propriety of someone under such heavy legal scrutiny aspiring to the presidency during his conversation on MSNBC’s “Inside with Jen Psaki.”
Landrieu, who played a pivotal role in the rollout of Biden’s major infrastructure initiative, signaled the Biden campaign’s strategy to focus on Trump’s legal entanglements, including a notable $83.3 million penalty in favor of E. Jean Carroll for defamation.
As the Biden campaign ramps up for a lengthy election period, Landrieu’s comments underscore a strategic positioning against Trump, contrasting Biden’s vision with what he perceives as a greatly altered Republican landscape under Trump’s influence, a departure from the party of past leaders like Ronald Reagan and George Bush. With the delegate count already underway, Landrieu expressed confidence in the electorate’s ability to distinguish between Biden’s leadership and the direction Trump represents for the Republican Party.
