The Biden administration has intensified its offensive against former President Donald Trump, focusing on the potential Republican nominee for the 2024 presidential election as a rematch between the two political heavyweights becomes increasingly probable.

Throughout the week, the Biden campaign has been launching daily attacks on Trump, releasing memos that outline the potential implications of a second Trump term on issues such as abortion rights, the economy, and immigration. The campaign has specifically responded to inflammatory remarks made by the former president, in which he referred to his political adversaries as "vermin."

This aggressive approach comes in the wake of several polls indicating that Trump is currently leading Biden in key battleground states and on a national scale. For some Biden supporters, this move is long overdue.

Former Senator Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) recently appeared on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," arguing that the Biden team needs to "start focusing on the binary choice between somebody who would be a danger to our democracy and the world, and somebody who's going to surround himself with strong, competent people and run a competent government."

The Biden campaign has been proactive in its offensive against Trump, releasing a series of memos titled "Trump's America in 2025" aimed at emphasizing the stakes in the upcoming election.

These memos argue that a second Trump term could result in a nationwide abortion ban, an end to birthright citizenship, and pose a significant threat to U.S. democracy. They also warn of the potential for "large-scale detention camps" for undocumented immigrants and the separation of immigrant families, reminiscent of Trump's first term. Each memo cites media reports about Trump's plans for a second term, based on the work of allies, conservative groups, and Trump's own statements.

The campaign has also seized on Trump's Veterans Day comments, in which he pledged to "root out … the radical-left thugs that live like vermin within the confines of our country." The Biden campaign likened this rhetoric to that used by dictators such as Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.

"Four more years of Donald Trump would destroy everything we stand for as Americans," said Biden campaign spokesperson Ammar Moussa. "Voters stood up to protect democracy in 2020, they did it again in 2022 as MAGA extremists continued to embrace Trump's dangerous ideas — and they'll do it again next November."

President Biden himself has also been confrontational towards Trump this week. At a campaign fundraiser in San Francisco, Biden mentioned Trump's name 21 times, according to a White House transcript.

"The only reason there is an abortion ban in America is because of Donald Trump," Biden said at the fundraiser. "The only reason teenagers in Ohio are being forced to travel out of state to get their health care is because of Donald Trump. The only reason a fundamental right has been stripped away from the American people for the first time in American history is because of Donald Trump."

Trump continues to dominate in Republican presidential primary polls, solidifying his status as the front-runner for the GOP nomination. He leads in national polls by an average of nearly 60 percentage points and by more than 20 percentage points in most state-level polls.

However, recent general election polls have shown Trump leading Biden in a hypothetical 2024 rematch, but some of these surveys have underscored how Biden may be able to win over enough voters who are either undecided or not sold on Trump.

A Yahoo News/YouGov poll released this week found Trump has a slight edge over the sitting president in a hypothetical rematch, leading Biden 44 percent to 42 percent. That poll also found 9 percent of respondents were unsure of who they would vote for, and another 5 percent said they were not planning to vote.

A Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday showed Trump with 48 percent support compared to 46 percent for Biden. The poll found that more than half of voters, 52 percent, said they would like to see other candidates throw their hats in the ring for the 2024 presidential race.

Earlier this month, a New York Times poll found Trump leading Biden in several key battleground states, while a CNN poll found Trump leading Biden in a national poll 49-45.

However, Biden allies believe that with roughly a year until Election Day, and with Trump not yet officially the GOP’s nominee, there is plenty of time to remind the electorate about the former president’s policy proposals and fitness for the job.

Once Trump is clearly the nominee, they argue, he will be subject to the kind of daily scrutiny Biden faces, and voters will be reminded of the choice they face next November.

"Trump means right-wing extremism, everyday chaos, criminal behavior, fundamental freedoms stripped away, and a rejection of democratic norms," Jim Messina, who served as former President Obama’s campaign manager, wrote in a Politico op-ed. "While some will argue that Trump is already defined in voters’ minds, many Americans still aren’t paying close attention to the election.”
