President Trump is calling presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden a “Trojan Horse.”
The strategy initially used by the Greeks to enter the city of Troy during the Trojan War is now being replicated by modern-day Democrats to use Biden to get “the Radical Left Agenda” into the White House, Trump said.
“Sleepy Joe Biden is just a Trojan Horse for the Radical Left Agenda. He will do whatever they want!” he tweeted.
Sleepy Joe Biden is just a Trojan Horse for the Radical Left Agenda. He will do whatever they want!

The official Trump War Room account responded to the post with a new ad showing Biden as just that—a Trojan Horse.
“Joe Biden is Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Ilhan Omar’s Trojan Horse for their radical Socialist agenda,” the account captioned the video.
“Don’t be fooled!” it added.

Similarly, Biden’s age and potentially cognitive decline have convinced some people that Biden is acting as a Trojan Horse for his eventual vice-presidential selection—should Biden pick someone who otherwise would not be elected.
Biden has also not helped his case with the ebb-and-flow of his own policies and political stances. The former vice president showed on multiple occasions throughout the primary process that he would change his views to be more accepting to those on the fringes of his party.
Several people who responded to the tweet did so in support of the president:
Sleepy Joe is nothing more than a puppet for the radical left.

The Democrats don’t care about either actually. Their destruction- centric platform serves one god only – the god of Trump Hate. These grifters are only interested in destroying the economy to enable a Trojan Horse into the White House come November. That is their sole agenda. https://t.co/SxhYsyHsRE
