The trolling wars between former US president Donald Trump and incumbent head of state Joe Biden ahead of the 2024 elections in the country seem to be getting out of hand as the latest trolling attempt has offended many.

The latest shot came from Trump, 77, who shared a video on his social media platform Truth Social, showing a rendering of Biden, 81, hog-tied and kidnapped in the back of a pickup truck.

The truck was decorated with large pro-Trump sign and flags, including pro-police “thin blue line” ones, ABC News reported.

This post by Trump has the Biden campaign all riled up.

“This image from Donald Trump is the type of crap you post when you’re calling for a bloodbath or when you tell the Proud Boys to ‘stand back and stand by,'” Biden campaign communications director Michael Tyler said in a statement to ABC News.

Tyler was referring to Trump threatening a “bloodbath” earlier this month for the US auto industry if he didn’t win the November presidential election, for which he received backlash from Biden.

Trump and his campaign dismissed the statement claiming it as misinformation spreading by political opponents. 

“Trump is regularly inciting political violence and it’s time people take him seriously — just ask the Capitol Police officers who were attacked protecting our democracy on January 6,” Tyler added in his statement.

Trump shared the video on Friday after he attended a wake for slain New York Police Department (NYPD) officer Jonathan Diller on Long Island, New York, the same day Biden raised $26 million at a star-studded fundraiser with former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.

Meanwhile, Trump campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung defended the Republican’s post in a statement to ABC News, pushing back on the rhetoric surrounding the video.

“That picture was on the back of a pick up truck that was traveling down the highway,” Cheung said. 

“Democrats and crazed lunatics have not only called for despicable violence against President Trump and his family, they are actually weaponising the justice system against him.”
