Biden Campaign Spokesman Criticizes Media Coverage Of Trump Trials

T.J. Ducklo, a spokesman for President Biden’s reelection campaign, expressed frustration on Wednesday with the news media’s coverage of Donald Trump’s legal trials, arguing that it overshadows Biden’s recent outreach to black voters.

In a post on X (formerly Twitter), Ducklo specifically called out CNN and MSNBC for not broadcasting the President’s speech to approximately 1,000 mostly black voters in Philadelphia. He wrote, “Instead, more coverage about a trial that impacts one person: Trump. Then they’ll ask, why isn’t your message getting out?”

Ducklo’s complaint comes months after he accused the media in February of not dedicating enough coverage to Trump’s legal jeopardy, urging reporters to cover the former president with “the seriousness and ferocity this moment requires.” At the time, he criticized the media’s focus on Biden’s age and mental state.

The Biden-Harris campaign has been making efforts to shore up support among black voters, a critical voting bloc for Democrats, amid polls indicating increasing dissatisfaction with the administration. Some surveys show Trump’s support among black voters reaching nearly 20 percent.

Janiyah Thomas, the Trump campaign’s director of black media, contrasted the two campaigns’ approaches, stating, “President Trump’s outreach to minority voters is straightforward: he shows up, listens, and makes it clear that we’ll be better off with him as President, just like we were four years ago.”
