(TheRedWire.com) – On Sunday, Ron Klain, the former White House chief of staff, argued that it was not necessary for President Biden to have a “big” strategy that he would use against former President Donald Trump. 

In an interview on MSNBC with host Jen Psaki, he argued that it was unnecessary to have a “big political strategy” in order to take Trump down. He continued by arguing that Trump was too busy taking himself down each day. He added that at the same time, it was important for the President to really clearly present how his presidency has been different as well as what he would bring forward if he remains in office for another four years, especially in contrast to what Trump has done. As he pointed out Trump himself has very often been stating what his intentions are if he wins back the White House. 

Psaki had asked Klain what his opinion of Biden’s strategy had been and had specifically pointed to the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner during which Biden had poked fun at Trump. In response, Klain had argued that President Biden loved campaigning and being out with the people, engaging voters. He added that whenever he is on the road his jokes would come out. 

On Saturday night Biden had used his speech to attack Trump several times, making indirect mentions of him as a 6-year-old while also joking about the criminal indictments the former President is facing. 

Both Trump and Biden are the presumed nominees for their respective races. This means that the 2024 presidential race is most likely going to be a repetition of the 2020 presidential race.
