Joe Biden trolls Trump with new video using the president's own words to ridicule him

For Joe Biden, it seems like the best campaign messages just get handed to him.

At a rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina on Saturday, Trump told his voters that he believed Joe Biden is the worst presidential candidate in history. He then added:

If I lose to him, I don’t know what I’m gonna do. I will never speak to you again. You’ll never see me again.

Trump has a penchant for indicting himself with his own words. While conservatives probably saw this as a threat, others couldn’t be more eager for Trump to disappear.

The president’s threat turned out to be a pretty perfect endorsement for Joe Biden, who made one of the most simple but effective campaign ads that same day. In the ad, Biden repeats the clip from the rally then says, “I’m Joe Biden and I approve this message.”

It’s a brilliant piece of trolling, and people praised the ad for being such a brutal takedown of Trump.

With almost 14 million views and over 700,000 likes, Biden’s video also appears to be more popular than any Trump’s campaign has created, proving that sometimes simple is better.

If Biden wins, here’s hoping Trump actually follows through on his promise.
