Biden prepares for further confrontations with the GOP in response to Trump

Biden and the White House are responding more forcefully to provocative comments by Trump and his supporters. The moves come in the weeks since Democrats outperformed expectations in the November midterms. Some Democratic strategists see an advantage in drawing a contrast with Trump, the GOP and the House. Joe Biden’s presence in the House will be a constant reminder of Donald Trump, GOP strategist says. Republicans argue that Biden’s stewardship of the economy has been inept.

White House officials say Biden has long felt compelled to reject political extremism and violent rhetoric. Others have called out Democrats for their own controversial comments and actions.
