After ordering a raid on Trump’s home, Biden blames Republicans for “attacking democracy”
Joe Biden addressed the nation in front of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, the building where the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution were signed. This city is situated in a hinge state, Pennsylvaniawhich Biden won in 2020 and Trump in 2016. Among the different mid-term elections held in November is that of one of the two state senators, a position that the Democrat is fighting for John Fettermanwho due to a heart attack is doing a reduced campaign, and Mehmed Oz, a television presenter of Turkish origin sponsored by Donald Trump. A key dispute to determine whether the Senate passes into Republican hands.
The president of the United States dedicated his speech to criticizing the opposition, which he accused of not accepting the results of the polls and fomenting political violence. Naturally, he did not mention that the Democratic Party refused to accept Trump’s victory four years earlier due to an invented “Russian collusion” nor the riots that devastated numerous American cities in the summer of 2020 with the excuse of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, demonstrations in which there were murders, unlike the storming of the Capitol by Trump supporters in January 2021. “As president, I will defend our democracy and I ask that all Americans join me,” he said Joe Biden after disqualifying about half the country.
“The MAGA Republicans (an acronym for Trump’s slogan ‘Make America Great Again’) do not respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of law and they do not recognize the will of the people,” Joe Biden said a few days after announcing that he would pardon part of the college student loans without Congress approving the expense, as the Constitution mandates.
Biden’s speech is part of the Democratic campaign for the midterm elections. In addition to numerous state and local offices, a new House of Representatives and one-third of the Senate will be elected. Although the polls predict a Republican victory, the return to all the covers of donald trump after the raid on his Florida home has led to a slight rebound for Democrats in the polls, putting a controversial former president and possible 2024 candidate in the spotlight rather than the economic situation and the numerous failures of the Biden Administration , whose popularity sank after the Afghanistan fiasco. Still it would be a surprise if the House of Representatives does not fall on the Republican side. The Senate, on the other hand, is more aware of a thread, given that the majority of the senators who are running for re-election this year are Republicans.
