President Trump is a genius. We all know that from his masterful political techniques to crush his opponents. Which is why he wins again and again. He got some unexpected help when he used a campaign ad to prove Biden lied when he claimed he would not cut social security at Thursday’s debate.
At a rally in Pensacola, Florida on Friday, the Trump campaign played the ad from Democratic-Socialist Bernie Sanders.
The premise for the big surprise came after Trump accused Biden of wanting to cut social security when he was in the senate. Biden replied:
“He’s a very confused guy,” Biden said in response to the claim at the debate. “He thinks he’s running against somebody else. He’s running against Joe Biden. I beat all those other people because I disagreed with them. Joe Biden, he’s running against. And the idea that we’re in a situation that we’re gonna destroy Medicare–this is the guy that the actuary of Medicare said if in fact–and–and Social Security–if in fact, he continues to withhold–his plan to withhold the tax on Social Security, Social Security will be bankrupt in–by 2023. With no way to make up for it. This is the guy who’s tried to cut Medicare. So, I don’t–I mean the idea that Donald Trump is lecturing me on Social Security and Medicare, come on.”
Biden is clearly lying here, and thanks to a little help from Bernie Sanders, now everyone can see that he is for themselves.
The Trump campaign tweeted out the ad as it played for those in attendance at the rally in order to boost the signal.

President Donald Trump presented a video package during Friday night’s campaign event in Pensacola, Florida which purported to prove that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden had attempted to cut Social Security.
Trump and Biden have battled over the safety of Social Security funds during their presidential campaigns. Biden has claimed that Trump would bleed Social Security coffers dry within three years. Trump has said that Biden attempted to cut both Medicare and Social Security during his decades in the Senate.
“Joe Biden spent his entire time in the Senate—long, long days, hours, nights—working to cut your Social Security,” Trump said during Friday’s rally. “You don’t know about that. To cut your Medicare. People don’t know about that. He denies it. He denied it last night.”
Trump then introduced the video which featured footage from a March Democratic Presidential debate between Biden and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
Sanders asked Biden if he had been on the Senate floor “talking about the necessity—with pride—talking about the necessity of cutting Social Security, cutting Medicare, cutting veterans’ programs.”
“No,” Biden said. “When I argued that we should freeze federal spending, I meant social security as well. I meant Medicare and Medicaid. I meant veterans’ benefits. I meant every single solitary thing in that government.”
President Trump then thanked crazy Bernie:
“Thank you, Bernie. I appreciate it, Bernie. Thank you very much. Bernie Sanders, everybody. The great Bernie Sanders.”
