The former president denounced that the current tenant of the White House “vilified 75 million citizens […] as threats to democracy and enemies of the state”.
Former US President Donald Trump on Saturday called current US President Joe Biden “an enemy of the state” for his controversial speech in which he expressed that both his predecessor and the followers of the slogan ‘Make America Great Again ‘ (MAGA) represent “extremism that threatens the foundations” of the country.
In this regard, Trump indicated that Biden offered the “most ruthless, hateful and divisive speech never pronounced by an American president,” collects AFP. “He is an enemy of the state. They want to know that,” he asserted.
The former president denounced that the current tenant of the White House “vilified 75 million citizens […] as threats to democracy and enemies of the state,” reports Fox News.
Likewise, Trump stressed that it is not the Republicans who identify themselves with the MAGA slogan who “are trying to undermine” democracy in the country. “It is we who we try to save our democracy, very easy. The danger to democracy comes from the radical left, not the right,” he concluded.
Biden said Thursday that Trump supporters “are determined to take this country backwards […] to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry the one you love.”
Shortly after, the president clarified that he considers that the threat to democracy in the United States is not Trump supporters, but people who accept the use of violence to achieve their own political objectives. “I don’t view any Trump supporter as a threat to the country,” he stressed.
