Biden mocks Trump's 'major announcement' on NFT 'trading cards' by touting his administration's recent wins

Biden mocks Trump's 'major announcement' on NFT 'trading cards' by touting his administration's recent wins

President Joe Biden mocked what his predecessor billed as a "MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT!" on Thursday with one of his own, releasing a checklist of his administration's recent accomplishments. 
Shortly after Donald Trump announced that he's selling NFT "trading cards" for $99 each, Biden tweeted, "I had some MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENTS the last couple of weeks, too…"

He listed the easing of inflation, signing the Respect for Marriage Act, bringing home WNBA star Brittney Griner from Russian custody, lower gas prices and "10,000 new high-paying jobs in Arizona."


It's not the first time Biden has made fun of Trump on Twitter.

On the day Trump announced his 2024 presidential bid, Biden tweeted a video of Trump talking about infrastructure reform — and of Biden signing infrastructure legislation. "The difference between talking and delivering," Biden tweeted.

Writing "Donald Trump failed America," Biden also released another video that day criticizing Trump on jobs, health care, the economy, and for "coddling extremists."

Trump's big announcement came a day after he teased it on Truth Social, leaving people to speculate about whether he would announce a 2024 running mate.

Instead, the former president released a cartoon image of himself dressed as a superhero and announced on Truth Social that his "limited edition" digital trading card NFTs "feature amazing ART of my Life & Career!" He directed customers to a new website to purchase the cards and explained that they're "very much like a baseball card, but hopefully much more exciting."

He introduces himself in a video on the website as "hopefully your favorite president of all time, better than Lincoln, better than Washington." The "artwork" displayed in the video portrays his likeness on Mount Rushmore, holding a torch near the Statue of Liberty, riding an elephant or shooting laser beams from his eyes as he rips open his shirt to reveal a superhero body.

Each card comes with a chance to win prizes, such as dinner with Trump or golf at one of his "beautiful" courses. "This makes a great Christmas gift," he says.
