While promoting his Safer America Plan on Tuesday, President Joe Biden had a message for politicians who supported the Jan. Riot at the US Capitol on June 6, 2021.
Let me say this to my ‘MAGA Republican’ friends in Congress,” the president said, alluding to the late President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again.” If you’re not going to denounce what happened on the sixth, don’t tell me I should support law enforcement.
For the love of God, who are you supporting? Biden stated.
In front of a throng at Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Biden reprimanded the legislators and demanded more funding for the police. In order to achieve the goals of his Safer America Plan, the president made investments in community policing and crime prevention. As early as May, he asked local governments to use federal monies to augment local police.
Additionally, Biden chastised Trump’s followers in the GOP for claiming to be the party of “law and order” while supporting the anarchists who assaulted police officers in Washington, D.C., last year.
He asserted, “You can’t be pro-law enforcement and pro-insurrection. “You cannot profess to defend law and order while calling the individuals who attacked the police on January 6 “patriots. You are not capable of completing that.
Recent comments made by Biden criticising the “MAGA worldview” as “like semi-fascism” infuriated the Republican National Committee. The president’s comments were deemed “despicable” by RNC spokeswoman Nathan Brand.
In addition, Biden reaffirmed his commitment to outlawing assault weapons, claiming that America’s inadequate gun regulations were responsible for, among other places, the mass murders in Uvalde, Texas, Newtown, Connecticut, and Buffalo, New York.
It’s time to hold elected officials accountable by getting their support for a ban on assault weapons. If not, then?” The answer, he suggested, is to vote against them.
In his closing remarks, Biden urged the audience to support Democratic senate candidate John Fetterman, the lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania. In a well covered Senate contest, Dr. Mehmet Oz, a candidate endorsed by Trump, is Fetterman’s opponent.
The president will be back in Pennsylvania on Thursday to deliver a speech at Independence National Historical Park in Philadelphia during prime time about the “continued war for the soul of the nation.”
