Thursday, in an effort to galvanize Democrats two months before the midterm elections, President Joe Biden labeled former President Donald Trump and his supporters extremists and termed MAGA Republicans a national menace.
Biden delivered an evening address at Independence Hall in Philadelphia in which he criticized Trump and people who support his Make America Great Again organization, stating that “equality and democracy are under attack.” We do not benefit us by pretending differently.”
“Too much of what’s happening in our country today is not normal. Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic,” Biden said.
That was the most demagogic, outrageous, and divisive speech I have ever seen from an American president. Joe Biden essentially declared all those who oppose him and his agenda enemies of the republic. Truly shameful. pic.twitter.com/ZcJX2BbZlt

Biden stated that he loves certain Republicans because they cooperate with him.
“Now, I want to be very clear, very clear up front. Not every Republican, not even the majority of Republicans, are MAGA Republicans. Not every Republican embraces their extreme ideology. I know, because I’ve been able to work with these mainstream Republicans,” he said.
“But there’s no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans. And that is a threat to this country,” Biden said.
Biden stated, after asserting that he was not simply the president of blue America and that he felt forced to speak the truth, “MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people. They refuse to accept the results of a free election, and they’re working right now as I speak in state after state to give power to decide elections in America to partisans and cronies, empowering election deniers to undermine democracy itself.”

Touching on the Supreme Court decision that overturned the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion and states that have moved to restrict abortion, Biden painted many Republicans as enemies of progress.
“MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards, backwards to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love. They promote authoritarian leaders, and they fanned the flames of political violence that are a threat to our personal rights, to the pursuit of justice, to the rule of law, to the very soul of this country,” he said.
