The Joe Biden campaign joined President Trump’s Truth Social platform on Monday and posted its first ‘truth’ asking for “converts,” it didn’t go down well.
“Well. Let’s see how this goes. Converts welcome!” The Biden post read.

Truth Social account Pepe Lives Matter was the first to respond, writing:
“Huge shout out to Joe Biden for red pilling the masses through one of the most blatant idiotic displays ever put forth by a famous person in the history of mankind.”
“You have single handedly woke up more people than any anon could possibly do by proving that President’s are mere bumbling puppets for the powers that be.”
“Please continue to tell people more about corn pop and how your butt has been wiped while you refer to yourself as Joe Biden’s husband.”
“You are truly the red pill that keeps on giving.”
Conservative journalist Raheem Kassam also responded, writing:
“Converts to what? Satanism? No thanks.”
Conservative influencer Benny Johnson chimed in, writing:
“How did you guys honestly think this was going to go?”
In a second post, the campaign used a clip of Ron DeSantis claiming Trump added $7.8T to the national debt, an obvious attempt to sow division among MAGA.
The campaign told Fox News it was trying to have “a little fun” on Truth Social and hold “MAGA accountable on their own platform.”
President Trump’s campaign spokesperson, Steven Cheung, said:
“Crooked Joe Biden and his team are finally acknowledging that Truth Social is hot as a pistol and the only place where real news happens.”
“Unfortunately for Biden, his continuation of spreading misinformation to gaslight the American people in order to distract from his disastrous record won’t work and they’ll be ratio’d to oblivion.”

Meanwhile, President Trump weighed in a gag order placed on him by a DC judge, noting, “I’ll be the only politician in history that runs with a gag order where I’m not allowed to criticize people, can you imagine that? I’m not allowed to criticize people.”
Trump added that he’s been indicted “more than Alphonse Capone.”
The 45th president also said he is willing to go to jail to beat Biden, noting “They think the only way they can catch me is to stop me from speaking, they want to take away my voice.”
“This is weaponry, all being done because Joe Biden is losing the election, losing very, very badly to all of us in the polls. He’s losing badly,” Trump added.
