A super PAC that supported President Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign is shifting its gears now that Biden has been sworn into the White House. The super PAC, The Committee to Defend the President is changing its name and realigning its mission to oppose Biden’s agenda. The group will now call themselves the Committee to Defeat the President.
Ted Harvey, the Chairman of Committee to Defeat the President, said “For the last seven years the mission of our organization has been to defend America against the corrupt socialist efforts of the Democrat Part. Whether that was stopping Hillary, defending Trump or defeating Joe, our mission is the same…keep America Great.”
Fox News reports:
The super PAC, which raised more than $16 million and spent more than $14 million to defend Trump and his “America First” agenda during the 2020 cycle, says it’s now turning its attention to “undermining” the agenda of the incoming Biden administration. The group says its re-branding effort on its website and social media platforms will officially take place Wednesday.
The committee tells Fox News it plans match its 2020 fundraising during the 2022 cycle, and pledges a seven-figure investment “to expose the Biden-Harris administration and other Democrats for their left-wing politics.” The group says its push will include new ads, opposition research, social media engagement, and “other innovative tactics.”
Ted Harvey, the group’s chairman, says the “new mission is to save Americans from the radical, dangerous policies of the Biden-Harris administration.”
He charged that “Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will work around the clock to reverse the unprecedented progress of the Trump presidency. From day one, we simply cannot let that happen. It is our patriotic duty to work around the clock and stop them—before the damage done to America becomes irreversible.”
The group will have plenty of ammunition to blast Biden with. Yesterday, mere hours after taking office Biden signed multiple executive orders which will ultimately cost thousands of American jobs.
Yesterday, while delivering his farewell address Trump hinted at a return to the political fray in the future and has even floated the idea of forming a new political party. [KEEP READING: Trump Hints at Return to Politics in Farewell Speech]
