Donald Trump and Joe Biden are sharpening their lines of attack for the general election.

Biden is already on the back foot.

And Donald Trump told a sick truth about Joe Biden and the police that will make your blood boil.

Donald Trump attends wake for Officer Jonathan Diller 

The family of slain New York City Police Officer Jonathan Diller invited former President Donald Trump to his wake.

Police arrested a man with 21 prior arrests for allegedly murdering Diller and Trump provided words of comfort for the family and support for the police saying this must never be allowed to happen again.

President Joe Biden never mentioned Diller’s name, nor did he even think about attending the wake.

Biden was in New York on the day of Diller’s wake, but it was to attend a fundraiser with celebrities like Lizzo, Queen Latifah, and Stephen Colbert as well as former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton where his campaign raked in $25 million.

Trump told Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade that Biden couldn’t make any gestures of support towards Officer Diller because the base of the Democrat Party wants to defund the police.

“I think that politically he can’t support the police. I think he’s also making a mistake, but I think politically, his base won’t let him support the police,” Trump stated. “And I support the police, I would say at the highest level of any President by far, maybe double or triple. And they knew that. That’s why when I walked into that funeral parlor, it was — it was like love. It was just — they want to shy away from it. They didn’t even call the family. They could have called. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know even a call would be, perhaps — I’m not sure they would take his call.”

Biden already faces a rebellion on his Left over the war in Gaza and he can’t afford to further annoy his base by expressing sympathy for Officer Diller.

Trump gets the split screen he wants 

The optics of the day played in Trump’s favor.

Even a writeup in The New York Times which simply described Trump spending time with the grieving family of a fallen police officer while Biden rubbed elbows with the rich and famous read like a press release from the Trump campaign.

“For Democrats, it was a high-profile, celebrity-studded fund-raiser for President Biden in Manhattan. On Long Island, former President Donald J. Trump attended a wake for a New York City officer who was killed during a traffic stop on Monday. Together, the day’s events struck an unusual contrast in a general election campaign that has so far been largely defined by appearances in courtrooms and at small, invitation-only events,” The New York Times reported.

“Mr. Biden, along with Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, appeared before 5,000 donors at a Radio City Music Hall event that campaign aides said raised $25 million. The eye-popping number set a record for a single political event, according to the aides, and offered a star-studded show of Democratic unity as the President heads into a difficult re-election campaign,” the Times also reported.

2016 Déjà vu 

In 2016, Hillary Clinton outraised Trump two to one because her campaign leaned into celebrity and the message that the American people owed her the Presidency because of her gender.

Trump ran a campaign addressing people’s issues on the border, the economy, and foreign policy.

Dueling events where Biden hung out with recording stars while Donald Trump consoled the widow of a police officer killed due to Democrats’ soft-on-crime policies strikes many as big-time 2016 energy.
