President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ campaign joined former President Donald Trump’s social media platform on Monday after previously deciding not to do so five months earlier.

The campaign said in May that it would “absolutely not” be joining Truth Social, a platform that Trump founded in 2022 after being banned from Twitter, according to Axios. A Biden campaign official told Fox News that the move is an effort to meet “voters where they are,” as the platform is mainly used by Trump and his followers.

“Well. Let’s see how this goes. Converts welcome!” the Biden campaign posted to Truth Social on Monday.

Other posts from the campaign since joining include a video of former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley blasting previous Trump comments as “irresponsible” and of Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis critiquing Trump’s national debt record.

“A thing about campaigns is sometimes you just do things for the lolz,” Rob Flaherty, Biden’s deputy campaign manager, tweeted about the decision to join Truth Social.

Trump is leading Biden in several key battleground states including Michigan, where he leads by seven points, according to a poll reported by The Detroit News. The former president is beating Biden 42 percent to 40 percent in Wisconsin while 11 percent of voters said they would choose another candidate and eight percent remain undecided, according to an Emerson College survey.

The Biden campaign did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller’s request for comment.
