President Biden has said that Republicans on the ballot for the midterm elections are a threat to democracy. These statements were made during a campaign event in Maryland Thursday evening.
Speaking about former President Trump and his “Make America Great Again” slogan, Biden has said that Republicans are a threat to democracy as they want to move the country backward.
Biden urged the crowd to vote to help save democracy and “ build a better America”.
“Now you need to vote to save democracy again,” Biden told a large crowd at the DNC rally.
This is the latest of Biden’s campaign events this year and there were thousands of people who had gathered at the rally.
Biden spent parts of his speech talking about the administration’s accomplishments, which included the success of distributing the COVID-19 vaccine as well as the wide job growth in the past few months. He also spoke about the lowering of gas prices and the high inflation rates. The recent legislative victories including the climate and healthcare bill known as the Inflation Reduction Act were also praised by Biden during this event.
Still, he also spoke about the threat the GOP poses as nationwide abortion bans are currently possible across the country. Republicans have also voted against the climate and health law as Biden noted.
Finally, he also said that Social Security was under threat from Republicans, and pointed toward Sen. Rick Scott’s (R-Fla.) plan which would put a stop to all federal legislation within 5 years.
Biden repeatedly also warned about the threat to Democracy, as was evident by Trump’s election fraud allegations and the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
