Former President Donald Trump is fundraising off of President Biden’s reported use of a four-letter word to express his dissatisfaction with his likely general election opponent.
“BIDEN JUST CALLED ME A SICK F-WORD!” read an email sent by the Trump campaign on Friday, asking supporters to “chip in.”
“[Y]ou know he doesn’t just think that about me, he thinks that about EVERY SINGLE ONE of my proud supporters,” the 77-year-old former president asserts in the message.
The solicitation comes a day after a report that Biden, 81, has referred to Trump as a “sick f–k” in conversations with his close aides and longtime friends.
“What a f–king a–hole the guy is,” Biden has also recently said of the former president, according to Politico.
A Trump campaign spokesman called it “a shame” but “no surprise” that Biden uses foul language when talking about the former president.
In his fundraising pitch, Trump reminded his adherents that “Hillary Clinton calls us deplorables” and he claimed that “Biden will spit on us & call us every curse word in the dictionary.”
“If you stand with me now, we’ll be the ones laughing on Election Day,” he added.
The email, signed by Trump, directs his backers to click on a large red button that reads, “I LOVE PRESIDENT TRUMP,” in order to contribute to the campaign.
Trump has previously attempted to fundraise off his criminal indictments, his Georgia mugshot and efforts to kick him off state primary ballots.
Campaign filings showed this week that more than $50 million in pro-Trump political action committee funds have been used this past year to pay for the 45th president’s mounting legal fees.
