Joe is getting ready for prime time.
According to a report from Fox News, President Biden is heading to Philadelphia on Thursday for a primetime address; he’s set to warn Americans that Democracy is “under attack.”
“He will speak about how the core values of this nation — our standing in the world, our democracy — are at stake,” a White House official confirmed to Fox News. “He will talk about the progress we have made as a nation to protect our democracy, but how our rights and freedoms are still under attack.”
“The speech, in the crucial general election battleground state of Pennsylvania, comes less than 10 weeks ahead of the November’s midterm elections, when the Democrats hope to hold onto their razor-thin majorities in the House of Representatives and the Senate. The address also comes as Biden has raised his rhetoric in recent days, targeting what he argues are anti-Democratic ‘MAGA Republicans’ who have embraced ‘semi-fascism,’” Fox reports.
“What we’re seeing now is either the beginning or the death knell of an extreme MAGA philosophy,” Biden told Democratic donors at a gathering in Maryland. “It’s not just Trump,” he went on, “it’s the entire philosophy that underpins the — I’m going to say something: It’s like semi-fascism.”
RNC spokesperson Emma Vaughn blasted Biden as divisive in a statement.
“Biden has pitted neighbors against each other, labeled half of Americans as fascist, and tarnished any idea of his promise of ‘unity.’ Families are left with a recession, high gas prices, and a nation on the wrong track.”
