During a campaign event on Thursday evening in Maryland, President Biden ripped “MAGA Republicans.”
Biden ripped President Trump and his “Make America Great Again” slogan and accused his movement of taking the country “backwards.”
“Now you need to vote to literally save democracy again,” Biden said to a crowd just outside of Washington, D.C. “Trump and the extreme MAGA Republicans have made their choice — to go backwards full of anger, violence, hate, and division. But we’ve chosen a different path forward, the future, unity, hope and optimism.”
“We choose to build a better America,” Biden said.
Biden also made a point to differentiate between conservative Republicans and “MAGA” Republicans.
“The MAGA Republicans don’t just threaten our personal rights and economic security. They’re a threat to our very democracy,” Biden said near the end of his remarks. “They refuse to accept the will of the people. They embrace, embrace political violence. They don’t believe in democracy.”
“This is why in this moment, those of you that love this country — Democrats, independents, mainstream Republicans — we must be stronger, more determined, and more committed to saving America than the MAGA Republicans are destroying America,” he said.
Instead of moving forward and focusing on what the Democratic Party can do for America, President Biden is unable to move beyond Trump. He is still focused on the 45th president, even with the midterms just over two months away.
Biden is lying in the distinction between “mainstream” and “MAGA” Republicans since his administration has routinely attacked Republicans who were not Trump supporters. This makes him no different from his former boss, Barack Obama, of course.
Trump is right about one thing: This is about you, not him.
