2016 redux? Trump attacks on Biden recall Clinton fight

WASHINGTON (AP) — Gearing up to take on Democratic front-runner Joe Biden, President Donald Trump sees echoes of his 2016 foe, Hillary Clinton.

Despite polls that show Trump trailing the former vice president in battleground states, the Republican president is relishing the chance to wage against Biden what he believes will be a redux of his successful 2016 campaign. Central to the strategy for Trump, 73, is to try to paint the 76-year-old Biden as old and doddering, while hammering away at vulnerabilities in Biden’s past — the same cudgel Trump used against Clinton.

The rhetoric shows how Trump is trying to recalibrate his attacks on potential rivals as the crowded Democratic primary unfolds.
