Donald Trump’s reelection campaign hijacked Joe Biden’s ‘network of Latino supporters’ just moments after the former vice president announced his initiative on Wednesday.
On Wednesday, Biden spent the day campaigning in Pennsylvania and Iowa. During his rallies, he announced a new network aimed specifically at Latino voters, and called it ‘Todos Con Biden’ (Everyone with Biden).
The Dem candidate forgot to register the Internet domain or even take the Twitter handle and Trump supporters quickly seized the opportunity, buying the domain and putting up a fake website mocking Biden’s Latino outreach.
“Oops, Joe forgot about Latinos,” the website reads in English and Spanish. “Joe is all talk.”
When a user clicks on a ‘Let’s go’ button, the website redirects them to the Trump 2020 campaign website.

The Twitter handle @TodosConBiden offers more content, as it is filled with video footage of Biden supporting anti-immigration measures, a move Trump is often criticized for. Videos and critical posts are mixed with Biden’s gaffes on sensitive topics, including family separation and the notorious “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids” performance.

“Joe Biden launched his Latino coalition today but forgot to register the web address,” the @TrumpWarRoom Twitter account boasted on Wednesday. “Don't worry Joe, we took care of it for you!”
