White House Maintains Biden’s Speech Necessary Reminder Of The Danger That Democracy Faces In The US
The White House has said that President Biden’s force to his assertion was an essential reminder that the former president and his MAGA supporters are endangering democracy in the US.
At a COVID-19 relief plan meet, the President junked any notion that he had issues with the GOP or even with Trump’s supporters. He said that instead his attack was against anyone who encourages violence and also fails to denounce it. On Friday, Biden asserted that everything that Americans stand for rests on democracy. It was a gentler assertion of his stern message a day earlier.
The president’s speech was defended also by Karine Jean-Pierre, the press secretary at the White House. She said that President Biden was not being political when he in fact was standing up for democracy. She further said that denouncing violence in politics was not being political, now was defending freedom and rights.
