RNC: It’s No Debate, Biden Has Been a Total Disaster

As the first presidential debate approaches, it’s important to remember Joe Biden’s many disastrous failures.

By the Republican National Committee


  • With the first presidential debate of the 2024 election just a week away, the Biden team has been in “intensive discussion and preparation” at Camp David, hoping Biden will be able to revive his former strength.
    • Meanwhile, President Trump has been traveling around the country, engaging with voters at rallies and through media interviews.
  • Biden has been doing political debates for 50 years, having taken part in at least 40 candidate debates since 1972.
  • More than three years into Biden’s presidency, the American people have seen nothing but crisis after crisis, have less money in their pockets, and are tired of their tax dollars being wasted.


  • Biden’s failed immigration policies have created an unprecedented crisis at the border. 
  • Under Biden, more people on the FBI terror watchlist were arrested at the southern border in FY 2023 than in the last six years combined. 
  • Illegal aliens have committed horrific crimes against American citizens
    • Just this week, an illegal alien was arrested for the brutal rape and murder of mom-of-five Rachel Morin.
    • Earlier this year, 22-year-old nursing student Laken Riley was murdered by an illegal alien while out on a run.

  • Fentanyl, now the leading cause of death for Americans aged 18 to 45, is pouring through the border
  • Under Trump, the border was secure – and will be again under his leadership.
    • President Trump built nearly 500 miles of the world’s most robust and advanced border wall, resulting in an 87 percent reduction in illegal border crossings where the wall stands.
    • President Trump ended the dangerous policy of “catch-and-release,” which allowed illegal aliens to be released into the United States, often never to be seen again. 
    • Under President Trump, the United States entered a historic partnership with the Mexican government to deploy tens of thousands of Mexican soldiers to secure their side of the border.




  • Biden has wreaked havoc on American energy after promising to “eliminate” oil and natural gas.
  • Biden has looked everywhere but the U.S. for solutions to high gas prices.
  • Hardworking Americans are suffering the cost of Biden’s war on American energy.
    • Under Biden, energy prices have soared nearly 30 percent—13 times faster than the previous seven years, and all 50 states have reached new record-high gas prices.

    • President Trump withdrew from the unfair, one-sided Paris Climate Agreement.
  • Biden is pushing an unpopular electric vehicle (EV) mandate on the American people that will eliminate thousands of auto manufacturing jobs in the United States.

    • The Biden administration has already cut $4.7 billion in funding for Medicare Advantage, including a 1.12 percent cut to Medicare Advantage plans in 2024.
    • On top of the cuts, the Biden administration has taken several steps already to undermine the success of Medicare Advantage, including eliminating 2,000 diagnosis codes, which resulted in less coverage for seniors enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans than conventional Medicare fee-for-service.

    • Biden has systematically undercut Israel at the UN since day one by rejoining the antisemitic UNHRC, bankrolling UNRWA’s Hamas collaborators, cancelling UN sanctions on Iran, and participating in a moment of silence for President Raisi and demanding that the IDF stand down in Rafah. 
  • Meanwhile, President Trump stands with Israel and against anti-Semitism.
