    Biden to take campaign against Trump to church where white gunman killed nine – By John T. Bennett (Roll Call) / Jan 3, 2024

    Biden-Harris campaign manager predicts ‘a really close election’

    President Joe Biden’s top reelection campaign aides barely mentioned the other Republican presidential candidates during a 2024 kickoff call, hammering a message that Donald Trump is “running as a dictator.”

    Officials briefed reporters Tuesday on some of the campaign’s strategies and plans for January and topping the list was portraying Trump as a threat to American democracy and enabler of white supremacism.

    Biden is set to deliver remarks during a campaign event Monday at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C. Officials said Biden would discuss white supremacists like a white gunman, Dylann Roof, who killed nine Black members of the congregation in 2015.

    The church, known as Mother Emanuel, is one of the oldest Black churches not just in the Palmetto State, but in the entire South. It avoided being burned down in 1812 due to its role in a slave revolt. Former House Majority Whip James E. Clyburn, D-S.C., has said Roof carried out his deadly massacre because it was an act “he thought would ignite a race war.”
