With the first public hearing in the impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump set to begin this week, Democratic candidate Joe Biden’s presidential campaign is promoting the former vice president’s foreign policy record in a new campaign ad.
The ad, titled “Moment” set to be released in Iowa on Tuesday, less than three months ahead of the state’s primary election, focuses on Biden’s nearly four-decade experience in foreign policy, both as a Delaware senator and as vice president.
The ad opens with bleak, monochromatic images of missiles, soldiers marching, and Trump shaking hands with the likes of Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un as a voiceover issues an ominous message about Trump’s leadership.

“We live in the most dangerous moment in a generation. Our world, set on edge by an erratic, unstable president. Dictators and tyrants are praised, our allies, pushed aside,” the narrator states.
“This is a moment that requires strong, steady, stable leadership. We need someone tested, and trusted around the world. This is a moment for Joe Biden — a president with the experience to lead,” the ad continues, shifting to color images of Biden’s time in office.
The ad’s message echoes Biden’s own statements on the campaign trail.
“Right now, we don’t really have a foreign policy. I’m not being facetious — we don’t have a foreign policy. We are embracing thugs like Putin and Kim Jong-un. This president’s talking about love letters with a butcher. This guy had his uncle’s brains blown out sitting across the table, his brother assassinated in an airport. This is a guy who has virtually no social redeeming value,” Biden said during a Veterans Day town hall in Oskaloosa, Iowa, referring to Kim.
While he remains the Democratic frontrunner in national polls, he has fallen into fourth place in Iowa, topped by Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Biden has ramped up campaigning in Iowa, hosting more town hall-style events than rallies, allowing him to interact with supporters.
During these events, the former vice president has issued a similar message to the one in his ad, slamming Trump’s presidency and peddling his foreign policy credentials.
“The next president is going to inherit a divided nation and a world in disarray. That’s just a fact. It’s going to require someone who can truly unite this nation at home and someone who can command the respect of world leaders on day one,” Biden said at a town hall in Maquoketa, Iowa, in October, according to ABC News.
“There’s not gonna be a whole lot of time for on the job training. Day One you gotta be able to stand up and the world know you know what you’re talking about. Know you know what you’re saying. And know you mean what you say. We have to set aside our divisions and come together as Americans.” Biden said at the same event.
Biden’s ad comes at a crucial time, with the first public hearings in the ongoing impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump will begin this Wednesday, as announced last Wednesday by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff.
The hearings will feature depositions from three State Department officials who have already testified behind closed doors about their concerns about Trump’s dealings with Ukraine.
Schiff, whose committee is leading the inquiry, said that the opening hearing will feature key State Department official George Kent and William Taylor, the U.S. special envoy in Ukraine.
Then on Friday, Nov. 15, Schiff revealed, there will be testimony from Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine. All three witnesses have already testified in closed-door hearings.
“Next week, the House Intelligence Committee will hold its first open hearings as part of the impeachment inquiry,” Schiff said. “On Wednesday, November 13, 2019, we will hear from William Taylor and George Kent. On Friday, November 15, 2019, we will hear from Marie Yovanovitch. More to come.”
