Biden Campaign Ad Paints Trump as a Felon

President Biden’s campaign on Monday began its most aggressive effort to brand former President Donald J. Trump a felon, with the introduction of a new television advertisement that focuses on the presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s criminal conviction.

The campaign said the ad would be part of a $50 million investment in battleground states in June. A growing number of Democrats have been urging the president to become more aggressive in branding Mr. Trump with his criminal conviction.

“We see Donald Trump for who he is,” the ad’s narrator states. “He’s been convicted of 34 felonies, found liable for sexual assault and he committed financial fraud.”

The ad concludes by framing the election with the choice the Biden campaign aims to sear into the memory of voters who may be on the fence about casting a ballot for Mr. Biden, whose approval ratings last week reached the lowest point in his presidency.

“This election is between a convicted criminal who is only out for himself and a president who is fighting for your family,” the ad’s narrator states.

Since Mr. Trump’s trial concluded last month, the president’s Democratic allies have been engaged in a broad discussion about how to use the New York jury’s decision in the campaign.
