US presidential candidate Joe Biden has made an island on Animal Crossing: New Horizons, to spread awareness of his campaign.
That’s right, Joe will be welcoming visitors to Biden Island this week after revealing it in a live stream with KindaFunnyGames.
Joe Biden is a nominee for the Democrat party, and is running against Donald Trump in this year’s US election, to decide who will be the next president.
Joe isn’t the first US politician to join the Animal Crossing community, earlier this year Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joined and has been sharing fruit and leaving messages on people’s islands.
Samantha Zager, who is Donald Trump’s campaign deputy national press secretary didn’t seem the think it was such a good idea: “Joe Biden thinks he’s campaigning for president of ‘Animal Crossing’ from his basement.
“The Trump campaign will continue to spend its resources campaigning in the real world with real Americans.”
Donald Trump might not be trying out Animal Crossing, but he is known for his strong presence on social media, in particular on Twitter.
He has now also branched out on to Instagram and TikTok’s rival Triller, to try to spread his message to younger voters in the US.
