WASHINGTON, DC: President Joe Biden has launched a scathing critique of former President Donald Trump regarding his alleged ties to Project 2025, a controversial and highly detailed 900-page document called 'Mandate for Leadership'.

The document outlines plans and personnel for reconstructing the executive branch of the US government.

Project 2025 overview and Joe Biden's response

Project 2025, also known as the 2025 Presidential Transition Project, is a product of The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.

The project, developed with input from former Trump administration officials, includes a 180-day transition plan and addresses both domestic and foreign policy. It is essentially an administration-in-waiting for the next conservative president.

Biden's focus on Project 2025 comes in the wake of his first debate against Trump on June 27, which led to calls from some Democrats for Biden to drop out of the race. In response, Biden highlighted one of the project's main targets: abortion.

He stated, "Project 2025 should scare every single American. It would give Trump limitless power over our daily lives and let him use the presidency to enact 'revenge' on his enemies, ban abortion nationwide and punish women who have an abortion, and gut the checks and balances that make America the greatest democracy in the world. It’s extreme and dangerous."

The Heritage Foundation President Kevin Roberts praised a recent Supreme Court ruling on immunity, describing it as "vital" and suggesting it would aid the group's efforts in what he called the "second American Revolution."

Roberts remarked, “We are in the process of the second American Revolution, which will remain bloodless if the left allows it to be,” during an interview on Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast.


Donald Trump's denial and Joe Biden's counterattack

In an attempt to distance himself from Project 2025, Trump posted on his Truth Social account, "I know nothing about Project 2025. I have no idea who is behind it. I disagree with some of the things they’re saying and some of the things they’re saying are absolutely ridiculous and abysmal. Anything they do, I wish them luck, but I have nothing to do with them.”

However, the Biden-Harris 2024 campaign quickly responded online, emphasizing the connections between the project and Trump. Biden himself posted, "It’s his people and his plan. But it’s your freedoms and future at risk. Trump’s 'project' will destroy America."


The 922-page plan proposes a dramatic expansion of presidential power, including the potential firing of up to 50,000 government workers to be replaced with Trump loyalists. The agenda has become a focal point for Biden's reelection campaign as he seeks to maintain Democratic support following a challenging debate performance.

While distancing himself from Project 2025, Trump has outlined his own plans for government restructuring if he wins a second term. These include orchestrating the largest deportation operation in U.S. history and imposing tariffs on all imports.

His campaign has warned outside allies not to speak for him, indicating that their transition-in-waiting efforts might be counterproductive.

Key figures in Project 2025

Project 2025 includes several former senior Trump administration officials. Paul Dans, the project's director, previously served as chief of staff at the U.S. Office of Personnel Management under Trump. Trump’s campaign spokeswoman, Karoline Leavitt, appeared in one of the project's videos.

John McEntee, former director of the White House Presidential Personnel Office, serves as a senior adviser. McEntee told The Daily Wire earlier this year that the team would integrate much of its work with the Trump campaign post-summer when Trump would announce his transition team.

Trump’s comments on Project 2025 precede the Republican Party’s upcoming meetings to draft its party platform. Project 2025 has been preparing a 180-day agenda for the next administration to be shared privately, separate from its public priorities for a Republican president, WSVN reported.


Russ Vought, a key Trump ally and contributor to Project 2025, is also involved in drafting this agenda and sits on the Republican National Committee’s platform writing committee.

Despite its clear conservative orientation, Project 2025 claims no allegiance to a specific candidate.

"We are a coalition of more than 110 conservative groups advocating policy and personnel recommendations for the next conservative president,” the project stated. “But it is ultimately up to that president, who we believe will be President Trump, to decide which recommendations to implement.”

The Biden campaign has consistently depicted Project 2025 as an extremist agenda. Ammar Moussa, a Biden campaign spokesperson, described it as "the extreme policy and personnel playbook for Trump’s second term that should scare the hell out of the American people."

On the other hand, Agenda 47 is what Trump's 2024 presidential campaign calls their formal policy plans. According to the campaign, it is "the only official comprehensive and detailed look at what President Trump will do if he returns to the White House."

Joe Biden slammed on social media

Considering, Biden was blasted on social media for his fearmongering and attempts to antagonize voters against Trump.

"Trump’s policy platform is Agenda 47, not Project 2025 but keep gaslighting and stoking racial hatred," one posted on X.

"Clutch your fear porn tight when you lay your head down to sleep," another quipped.

"The only ones acting like fascist[s] lately are Democrats," a comment read.

"Oh look they pulled out another Russian Dossier so they can try and spread another Russia Russia Russia hoax," someone else alleged.

"Whatever propaganda it takes to pull attention away from poopy pants," another chimed in.
