President Biden’s reelection campaign argued on Friday that former President Trump’s response to his conviction should prove he “cannot be president,” following Trump’s press conference railing against the outcome of his hush money trial.

“America just witnessed a confused, desperate, and defeated Donald Trump ramble about his own personal grievances and lie about the American justice system, leaving anyone watching with one obvious conclusion: This man cannot be president of the United States,” Biden communications director Michael Tyler said in a statement.

Trump was found guilty on 34 felony counts in New York on Thursday and, earlier on Friday, he tore into Judge Juan Merchan and the district attorney who brought the case, Alvin Bragg (D) in lengthy remarks.

He said the trial was “a scam” and “rigged” and vowed to appeal the conviction.

The Biden campaign, in its response, said Trump is only focused on himself to attempt to set a distinction between him and the president.

“That’s what Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are fighting for. Donald Trump is sowing chaos, attacking the rule of law, and fighting for the only thing in the world he gives a damn about: Donald Trump,” Tyler said.

The Biden campaign has seized on Trump’s guilty verdict, calling him a “convicted felon” to raise money for the 2024 race.

Biden also called for donations, posting on social platform X, “There’s only one way to keep Donald Trump out of the Oval Office: At the ballot box.”
