Joe Biden is now running for cover following his Thursday address where he viciously attacked Republicans who are supporters of President Donald J. Trump, branding “MAGA Republicans” a threat to “democracy.”
Fox News reports:
“You keep trying to make that case. I don’t consider any Trump supporters a threat to the country,” Biden said. “I do think anyone who calls for the use of violence, refuses to acknowledge an election…changing the way you count votes, that is a threat to democracy.”
That seemed to contradict his Thursday speech, when he said that U.S. politics is in a battle between “equality and democracy,” and that the GOP have assaulted those principles.
“As I stand here tonight, equality and democracy are under assault. We do ourselves no favor to pretend otherwise,” he said. “There’s no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans. And that is a threat to this country.”
He further tweeted that Trump and “MAGA Republicans” are “a threat to the very soul of this country.”

“Failure to acknowledge when elections were won or lost” are why Biden labeled Republicans a threat, he claimed in the speech.
