Biden issues a fresh, urgent warning: Trumpism endangers democracy.

President Joe Biden urged Americans of all political persuasions to help combat what he portrayed as dark forces within the Republican Party attempting to undermine democracy in a prime-time speech, charging that the "extreme ideology" of Donald Trump and his supporters "threatens the very foundation of our republic." In his address on Thursday night at Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Biden unleashed the presidential trappings in an atypically harsh and comprehensive denunciation of Trump and what he claimed has become the leading faction of the opposition party. His attack came only two months before voters go to the polls in the hotly contested midterm elections, which Vice President Joe Biden deems a turning point for the country. He shouted over pro-Trump hecklers outside the building where the nation's founding was discussed to address a crowd of hundreds, saying, "Too much of what's occurring in our society today is not normal." Using the acronym for Trump's "Make America Great Again" campaign slogan, he said he wasn't blaming the 74 million people who supported him in the 2020 election but added, "There's no question that the Republican Party today is dominated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans." The president, who preached his desire to achieve national unity in his inaugural speech, recently took a dramatic turn in response to Biden's overt attempt to marginalize Trump and his supporters.He shouted over pro-Trump hecklers outside the building where the nation's founding was discussed to address a crowd of hundreds, saying, "Too much of what's occurring in our society today is not normal."

The president, who preached his desire to achieve national unity in his inaugural speech, recently took a dramatic turn in response to Biden's overt attempt to marginalize Trump and his supporters. Biden responded, "I don't think any Trump fan a threat to the country," when asked on Friday if he thought all Trump supporters posed a danger to the nation. "I do think that anyone who pushes for the use of violence, fails to condemn violence when it is used, refuses to recognize the outcome of an election, and insists on changing the way the procedures to count votes, that is a threat to democracy," he continued. When voters choose Trump, he claimed, "they weren't voting for destroying the Capitol. They weren't casting their ballots to annul the election. They were supporting the viewpoint he had advanced by voting. During his first year in office, Biden mostly refrained from mentioning "the former guy" by name and has since become more outspoken about doing so. He has already stepped up his attacks, last week comparing the "MAGA mindset" to "semi-fascism," feeling emboldened by his party's legislative victories over the summer and scared of Trump's return to the spotlight. Biden struggled to reconcile his critique with a call to more conservative Republicans to be heard as he ventured into dangerous political territory. Republicans quickly accused him of merely escalating political rifts. Kevin McCarthy, the head of the House Republican Party, delivered a preemptive reaction from Scranton, Pennsylvania, where Biden was born, claiming that it is the Democratic president, not Republicans, who is attempting to polarize Americans. Joe Biden has "launched an assault on the soul of America, on its people, on its laws, and on its most precious principles" over the past two years, according to McCarthy. "He has started a campaign to undermine our democracy. His actions have seriously harmed America's soul, sapped its strength, and violated its trust. In response to a question about McCarthy's criticism, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre earlier said, "We understand we hit a nerve" with the GOP leader and cited the Republican's earlier claims that Trump was to blame for the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. This weekend, Trump will hold a rally near Scranton. The strong tone of Biden's statements, according to White House insiders, showed his growing anxiety about the ideological plans of Trump friends and their steadfast denial of the nation's 2020 election results. Invoking Trump and his supporters in the GOP as a threat to the American political system, its standing internationally, and the way of life of its residents, Biden declared that "equality and democracy are under assault" in the country. He claimed that Trump and the MAGA Republicans "fanned the embers of political violence" and "promoted authoritarian leaders." They "are committed to moving this nation backwards."This weekend, Trump will hold a rally near Scranton.

He referred to the social issues that Democrats have sought to put front and center for voters this fall, saying, "Backwards to an America where there is no freedom to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, and no right to marry who you love." The fact that Biden's presence was advertised as a government-sponsored event shows how the president sees thwarting the Trump agenda as both a policy goal and a political one. Independence Hall's brick was lighted by red and blue lights as the Marine Band performed "Hail to the Chief" and two Marine sentries stood guard in the background.

"We've reassured ourselves that American democracy is secure for a very long time. However, it isn't. Biden referred to the Charlottesville, Virginia, white nationalist rally in 2017 as the catalyst for his decision to run against Trump. In support of his claim that the nation will soon confront a comparable turning point, Biden declared that protecting the "soul of the nation" will be "the work of my presidency — a mission I believe in with my whole soul." However, the chairman of the Iowa Republican Party, Jeff Kaufman, claimed in a statement that Biden was employing dictatorial strategies and "trying to make his political opponents into an enemy of the state." Calling out Trump for his attacks on democracy, according to Larry Diamond, a senior scholar at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University and an authority on democracy, "may be exploited or portrayed as being partisan." You are avoiding a significant obstacle in the defense of democracy if you don't call it out. The Department of Justice's discovery of secret records in Trump's Florida house has sparked a legal and political uproar that the White House has made an effort to keep Biden out of. However, Biden has argued that "you can't be pro-insurrectionist and pro-American" by citing certain Republicans' hasty rejection of federal law enforcement. His visit to Philadelphia was just one of three he made to the state in a week, demonstrating the significance of Pennsylvania in the midterm elections given the state's close Senate and governor's races. But neither Josh Shapiro, the Democratic nominee for attorney general, nor John Fetterman, the Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor, showed up on Thursday night. The speech was intended by the White House to combine well-worn themes: celebrating bipartisan legislative victories on infrastructure and gun control as proof that democracies "can deliver," and criticizing GOP policies on abortion and gun control that Biden claims are against the views of the majority of Americans. Since the commotion around the 2020 election and the Capitol attack, the difficulties have only become worse. Lies surrounding that presidential contest have led to intimidation, death threats, and new mail-in voting restrictions in states with a Republican majority. Election officials in the county have come under pressure to forbid the use of voting equipment due to rumors that the machines were somehow rigged to steal the election. Candidates who contest Trump's loss have been motivated to run for state and municipal election positions, vowing to reestablish the integrity of a system that has been weakened by untrue assertions. There is no proof of massive fraud or voting machine manipulation. Dozens of cases brought after the election were dismissed by judges, including judges selected by Trump, and Trump's own attorney general referred to the charges as unfounded. However, according to a study by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, approximately two-thirds of Republicans do not believe Biden was duly elected president.
