President Joe Biden’s address to the nation earlier in the week was criticized by former President Donald Trump, who called it the most “vicious” speech ever made by an American president, Fox News informed.
Trump said to a boisterous crowd in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, on Saturday night during a campaign stop for Republican candidates in the state, “Joe Biden came to Philadelphia to give the most vile, hateful, and divisive address ever made by an American president.”
Biden, according to Trump, disparaged 75 million people in addition to another 75 to 150 as enemies of the state and risks to democracy.
In his speech in Philadelphia on Thursday, Biden asserted that “MAGA forces” were attempting to undermine “equality and democracy.” This assertion drew harsh criticism from conservatives.
In a commentary published on Friday, the Washington Post Editorial Board argued that the address was excessively “political” and unkind to well-meaning Americans.
The board argued that Biden’s address “fallen short” of bringing the nation together and offended good Republicans who might have been persuaded to turn away from Trump’s MAGA movement.
Conservatives made fun of Biden’s foreboding “blood red” lights while he was speaking as well; Trump reinforced this attack during his rally on Saturday.
Trump visited Pennsylvania to support Dr. Mehmet Oz, a Republican running for the Senate, and Doug Mastriano, a Republican running for governor.
