The Biden campaign made a rookie mistake in launching its latest Latino voter outreach program—a mistake that Team Trump capitalized on in a heartbeat.
Prior to rolling out the new outreach initiative, “Todos Con Biden,” his campaign failed to purchase www.todosconbiden.com or even reserve the Twitter handle, @TodosConBiden. Naturally, the Trump campaign stepped in and trolled the former vice president.

"How the hell are you Joe Biden's campaign and you don't lock up the URL before you announce stuff?"
They also didn’t claim @todosconbiden on Twitter, so we grabbed that too. Give it a follow, why dontcha?https://t.co/DOuyjhazCf

A visit to the website shows a frowning Biden with the words, "Oops, Joe Forgot About Latinos. Joe Is All Talk," in both English and Spanish. Clicking further directs the user to the Latinos For Trump page. The Twitter account, meanwhile, has tweeted a number of unflattering video clips, quotes, and facts about Biden's record.
"The Biden campaign continues to be inept with a deeply flawed candidate," Deputy Communications Director Erin Perrine told ABC News. "Latinos are thriving under President Trump and now thanks to the Biden camp, people can find out more about that success at www.todosconbiden.com."
The Biden campaign said the move was "no surprise."
"It is no surprise that Trump's Campaign would resort to childish antics like this to take attention away from this President's appalling record of separating families and using immigrants as scapegoats, fomenting hatred and white supremacy, and trying to take away health care from millions of Americans who need it," Isabel Aldunate, the Biden campaign's deputy director of strategic communications/Hispanic media press secretary, told ABC News.
