President Joe Biden’s reelection campaign executed a calculated maneuver by creating a profile on former President Donald Trump’s Truth Social network on Monday

This move enabled them to participate in a platform that Trump regularly uses to attack opponents, further his bid for the Republican nomination, and restate refuted claims.

However, things took a turn when Biden was severely trolled on the platform. Several X users reacted and shared their opinions on the charade.

One user wrote, “Biden Campaign signed up for Truth Social. The first person they are following is Donald J Trump! 🤣🤣🤣 You cant make this up. Gavin even welcomed them to the board. 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️”

“You mean some of the millions of people that Joe Biden called the “dregs of society” now get to thrash him on Truth Social? 😂😂😂That’s a good thing.” another user wrote.

One X user tweeted, “Please post screenshots of the trolling to X (Twitter). I can’t create a Truth Social account as my phone number is not recognized, for some reason…”

On Monday afternoon, the Biden HQ account made its appearance on the site with the following message: “Well. Watch how this plays out. Welcome to converts!” This was an apparent attempt to appeal to the platform’s primarily conservative user base.

After incorporating a Biden-inspired ‘Dark Brandon’ meme into its profile photo, the account uploaded five more postings. These included video clips of well-known Republicans condemning Trump and President Joe Biden, including Nikki Haley and Ron DeSantis, two GOP presidential candidates.

The Biden campaign had planned to join Truth Social earlier on Monday in order to confront and refute “mis and disinformation” about President Biden that was making the rounds on the site. A campaign spokesperson told the network that the Republican party’s inability to come to a consensus on a House speaker serves as more evidence that “not every Republican thinks the same.”
