Top GOP Strategist: Biden Just Made A Major Mistake By Having His Campaign Show Up To Trump Trial

Republican political strategist Karl Rove said that President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign made a “stupid mistake” on Tuesday by showing up to Trump’s trial in New York City.

After largely ignoring Trump’s ongoing hush-money trial in New York, Biden’s campaign held an event outside the courthouse as the trial was set to go to closing arguments. The Biden campaign invited Robert De Niro, a vocal critic of the former president, to speak. De Niro denounced Trump and claimed the American system of government is at stake in the 2024 election.

“Stupid mistake by the Biden campaign,” Rove said on Fox News. “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?'”

“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,'” he continued. “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.\
