Biden campaign buys ‘Keep America Great’ domain to troll Trump

The Biden campaign has developed their own slogan to counter Trump and MAGA supporters

WILMINGTON, DELAWARE – AUGUST 19: Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden appears on stage after Democratic vice presidential nominee U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) spoke on the third night of the Democratic National Convention from the Chase Center August 19, 2020 in Wilmington, Delaware. The convention, which was once expected to draw 50,000 people to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is now taking place virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Biden/Harris ticket may not be able to campaign in the usual way, but they’re using the web to help them get their message out. As reported by NBC News, the Biden campaign has purchased the ‘Keep America Great’ domain to troll President Donald Trump.

‘Keep America Great’ was announced as Trump’s reelection slogan, but it appears that no one on his staff secured the domain, leaving it open for anyone to claim.

Joe Biden is using the new site to fact-check Trump on the promises he’s made to the nation over his four-year term. It says that people can sign up to keep up on all of Trump’s “failures.”

The mostly virtual Republican National Convention concluded on Thursday night, with Trump and his cronies saying that voters faced a choice between two Americas in November.

The one exemplified by Trump and his supporters seemed to be largely white, and affluent, although there were prominent Black conservatives like HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson and South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, who toed the party line.

An appearance by convicted felon Ann Marie Johnson, whose release after 21 years was secured with the help of Kim Kardashian, was another way the RNC tried to be inclusive of African-Americans. Trump awarded Johnson a full pardon afterward.

Biden and his team offered 12 examples of Trump’s lies, including statements and promises on the COVID-19 pandemic, immigration, the economy and jobs, and foreign policy.

The most glaring falsehood was Trump’s statement on the novel coronavirus which the site says that he told media on March 28 that “like a miracle – it would disappear.”

The New York Times’ coronavirus tracker reports that as of Aug. 27, there were 1,127 coronavirus deaths and 45,604 new cases around the country reported just on that day.
