Top GOP Strategist Says Biden Made Huge Mistake With Manhattan Campaign Event

Republican political strategist Karl Rove sees a major mistake in the event held by President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign outside the Manhattan courthouse where former President Donald Trump’s hush money trial is being held.

According to Rove, the Biden campaign’s plan to show up at Trump’s trial and get actor Robert De Niro to speak against him is a “stupid mistake.”

Speaking to Fox News, Rove said, “They wanted to get in while all the cameras were there, they wanted to get their moment in the sun. It was a big mistake. It politicizes the trial. Better to have waited. And then what was said — with all respect to De Niro, a wonderful actor — really? The people up for grabs in this election, ‘Donald Trump wants to destroy New York, destroy America, and destroy the world? And if you re-elect him he will never leave office and make himself a tyrant for life?’”

Questioning the effectiveness of the move, the political strategist continued, “Are those the kind of credible statements that will cause people who don’t like Biden and don’t like Trump but are trying to figure out who to vote for, will they say, ‘Jeez, you told me he wanted to destroy our country.’ The people who believe that are already in the Biden camp. That’s not who they should be trying to reach out to.”

“He came close in a moment of talking about January 6th and talking about the two officers, but that might have had an impact, but this was so over the top as to simply be useless. What a stupid mistake on the part of the Biden campaign. More reason why Democratic leaders are probably going to be concerned that he is the nominee, likely nominee of their party,” he added.

During his speech, De Niro denounced Trump and warned that he poses a danger to America’s government system.

“Under Trump, this kind of government will perish from the Earth. I don’t mean to scare you. No, no, wait, maybe I do mean to scare you. If Trump returns to the White House, you can kiss these freedoms goodbye that we all take for granted. And elections? Forget about them. That’s over, that’s done. If he gets in, I can tell you right now, he will never leave. He will never leave. You know that. He will never leave,” The Wizard of Lies actor stated.

“That’s why I’ve joined the Biden-Harris campaign, because the only way to preserve our freedoms and hold on to our humanity is to vote for Joe Biden for president. Really – we don’t have a choice,” he added.
