President Joe Biden released a new campaign ad Tuesday using the words of one of his harshest critics in Congress: Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.).

The short video sheds light on Greene’s comments at the conservative student-activist conference Turning Point Action in Florida last weekend. The congressman used her address to condemn the White House for trying to “finish what FDR started,” citing Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s policies on rural poverty alleviation, education and health care.

Attached to the video was a simple letter from the President: “I agree with this message.”

“Joe Biden had the largest public investment in social infrastructure and environmental programs that actually completed what FDR started, what LBJ expanded and Joe Biden is trying to complete,” Greene said during her speech. “Programs to address education, medical care, urban issues, rural poverty, transportation, Medicare, Medicaid, unions, and he’s still working on it.”

The White House targeted Greene earlier this week, saying lawmakers caught the Biden administration trying to “make life easier for hardworking families.”

“We agree with Marjorie Taylor Greene, which we don’t say often,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters Monday. “We totally agree with her on that. We are against rural poverty and the President is committed to protecting Medicare and Social Security.”
