Former President Donald Trump finally hit back at President Joe Biden’s claim that MAGA Republicans were a threat to democracy during a rally in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, on Saturday.
Trump was in Pennsylvania campaigning for Mehmet Oz and Doug Mastriano and the speech was his first appearance since the FBI raided his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida. During the speech, Trump hit back at President Biden and exposed him as being the true threat to American democracy.
Trump said, “Republicans in the ‘MAGA’ movement are not the ones trying to undermine our democracy. We are the ones trying to save our democracy. The danger to democracy comes from the radical Left, not from the Right.”
Biden crossed the line
President Biden’s speech crossed a line and both Trump and the Republican Party are taking full advantage of it.
Americans were already on edge following the raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago and trust in the Department of Justice is slipping.
Trump rightly pointed out that the raid on his residence was “one of the most shocking abuses of power of any administration in American history.”
The Biden administration followed up the raid on Trump’s residence with Biden’s speech in Philidelphia that so strongly crossed the line that even his fellow Democrats were shocked.
Trump responded to Biden’s speech by saying, “As you know, this week Joe Biden came to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to give the most vicious, hateful, and divisive speech ever delivered by an American president, vilifying 75 million citizens … as threats to democracy and enemies of the state.”
The speech was so bad that even CNN host Brianna Keilar took to Twitter to say, “Whatever you think of this speech the military is supposed to be apolitical. Positioning Marines in uniform behind President Biden for a political speech flies in the face of that. It’s wrong when Democrats do it. It’s wrong when Republicans do it.”
President Biden’s speech and the raid on Trump’s residence prove that Democrats know they are doomed going into the midterm elections and they are looking for anything to save them.
Control of Congress is paramount in these next two years and if Democrats lose, they can say goodbye to accomplishing anything on their agenda.
Joe Biden’s declining mental state, in combination with the mounting pressure of impending defeat, is causing him to become unhinged. Trump’s right to sound the alarm on Biden and the threat that his party presents to the nation.
