The Republican National Committee has responded to President Joe Biden‘s official launch of his 2024 re–election campaign with a first–of–its–kind video ad that utilizes AI–generated images to depict a dystopian America should the current president be re–elected.
The video asks viewers, “What if the weakest president we’ve ever had were re–elected?” and goes on to list out potential catastrophes, including international tensions, financial systems crumbling, the border disappearing and crime worsening, before concluding with “Beat Biden.”
RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement along with the video that “Biden is so out–of–touch that after creating crisis after crisis, he thinks he deserves another four years.”
The GOP’s response to Biden’s announcement signals that the 2024 election is poised to be the first election with ads full of images generated by modern Artificial Intelligence software that are meant to look and feel real to voters. The RNC has confirmed that this is the first 100% AI–generated video by the party.
The Republican Party has a plan of attack against Biden that focuses on the economy, crime, and international tensions. As of now, polls suggest the economy is the biggest threat to Biden’s re–election bid, with 83 percent of American voters having a negative view of the economy, 70 percent financially stressed and 58 percent living paycheck to paycheck.
70% of Americans think Joe Biden should NOT run for reelection. We see through his lies.
We know his destructive agenda means more inflation, lower wages, higher crime rates, a worsening fentanyl crisis, and failing schools.

The GOP also faces one big hurdle of its own – a brewing bitter primary fight that includes former president Donald Trump. Trump responded to Biden’s re–election bid by criticizing the president’s handling of the economy, the border and military. Trump will be facing off against his former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, tech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, and Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina. He may also come face–to–face with his former vice president, Mike Pence, and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
