Jill Biden Makes Extremely Rare Public Announcement About Trump

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

First lady Jill Biden, who launched Women’s History Month with a campaign rally in Georgia on Friday, denounced the treatment of women by the previous president Trump.

With speeches in the Atlanta region, the first lady introduced Women for Biden, a campaign initiative to encourage female votes. Jill Biden publicly praised President Biden’s achievements and his efforts to defend access to reproductive healthcare, but she also disparaged Trump, the presumed GOP nominee.

“He spent a lifetime tearing us down and devaluing our existence. He mocks women’s bodies, disrespects our accomplishments, and brags about assault,” Biden said, the latter point a reference to Trump’s past comments on an “Access Hollywood” tape.

“Now, he’s bragging about killing Roe v. Wade,” the first lady said. “Just last night, he took credit again for enabling states like Georgia to pass cruel abortion bans that are taking away the right of women to make their own health care decisions. How far will he go? When will he stop. You know the answer. He won’t.”

She added, “Donald Trump is dangerous to women and to our families.”

The first lady’s remarks may have given some indication of how she may be used as a campaign surrogate in the coming months.

In an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday, the former president mentioned that he had been hearing more about a proposed ban on abortions after 15 weeks. Trump stated he was still unsure about what to support, even though he did not rule out endorsing such a plan.

The first lady will speak with female voters in Georgia, Arizona, Nevada, and Wisconsin as part of the Women for Biden campaign.

Along with launching digital advertisements this week regarding her trips to battleground states, the campaign will continue to broadcast advertisements aimed at women through November.
