Trump hits Biden more than GOP opponents during Fox News town hall

December 7, 2023

Former President Donald Trump has such a commanding lead in the GOP primary polls that he's not only skipping all of the debates, but he's also barely giving his opponents an ounce of his breath at this point.

According to the Washington Examiner, that was evidenced in a big way during his recent town hall even broadcasted on Fox News.

While he poked Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley -- the only two who stand a remote chance against Trump -- the former president's primary focus was on hitting President Joe Biden.

The Examiner noted that Trump's choice to not spend too much time on his opponents means he's moving in a different direction in primarily attacking Biden.

Trump picked his shots wisely. In the rare moments he tackled DeSantis and Haley, he did so on white-hot topics like social security.

"We have more wealth than anybody, but we don't use it," Trump said. "And then guys like DeSantis and guys, like many of the Democrats, but guys like DeSantis and, to a lesser extent, Nikki Haley — they want to play around with your Social Security."

The former president briefly hit the two GOP opponents on various Democratic-linked donations to their Super PACs, but otherwise pivoted to Biden's disastrous time in in the White House.

One of the most notable moments was when Fox News host Sean Hannity asked Trump if he believes Biden will actually be the Democratic Party's nominee in 2024.

"I personally don't think he makes it, OK," Trump said. "I think he's in bad shape physically."

The former president took a jab at one of Biden's "tough guy" moments when he implied that he could physically manhandle Trump behind a barn.

"Do you remember when he said I'd like to take him behind the barn? If he took me behind the barn, and I went like this," Trump said while making a blowing sound, "I believe he'd fall over. ... Who knows?"

Trump not only dominates the GOP primary polls, but in recent weeks, he has beaten Biden in a number of national hypothetical matchup polls.

The DNC and the White House can pretend all they want that it's not a big deal, but they're absolutely losing sleep over their weak candidate who will undoubtedly be beaten next year if he's the guy.
