Former President Donald Trump was widely mocked after he sent out an email claiming he'd suspended his 2024 campaign before quickly admitting it was an April Fools' Day prank.

Trump added the following statement:

I will never stop fighting for the American people. I will never surrender!

Trump's email stated that Trump and his supporters “can’t sit back and watch Crooked Joe Biden continue to destroy our GREAT country.”

It added, before making a pitch for donations:

“That’s why it is more crucial than ever for all Trump supporters to STAND UP to play a leading role in helping us WIN BACK THE WHITE HOUSE,”

However, Trump's email didn't go over well with critics who openly wished it wasn't a prank at all.

In response to Trump's email blast, President Joe Biden's campaign took aim at Trump for not having "campaigned in 16 days." This statement came mere days after the campaign noted that Biden visited eight swing states in the 18 days between March 8 and March 26 including Pennsylvania, Georgia, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Michigan, Nevada, Arizona, and North Carolina.

By contrast, Trump's campaign schedule showed he has only one rally scheduled for today, April 2, in Green Bay, Wisconsin, a markedly empty slate less than eight months before his anticipated rematch with Biden.

Trump has continued to solicit donations amid recent civil judgments against him and the added stressor of the multiple federal and state charges against him that have cut into time he could otherwise spend on the campaign trail.

According to OpenSecrets, Biden's campaign has raised $188.8 million from his campaign committee and outside groups thus far in the campaign cycle. Biden has also raised more money from large contributions and small individual donations under $200, further underscoring his campaign's financial advantage.
