A clip showing former president Donald Trump referring to “some” Democrats as “fascists” has resurfaced after many people hit out at President Joe Biden for hit recent verbal attacks on “MAGA Republicans.”
On Wednesday night, Biden spoke at Independence National Historical Park in Philadelphia and launched a scathing attack on both his predecessor and his supporters who Biden said, “represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic.”
Trump’s former advisor Stephen Millar said in response to Biden’s speech: “President Biden tonight gave the speech of dictator in the style of a dictator, in the visual of a dictator, using the words of a dictator.”
Many others, including Governor Sununu of New Hampshire, urged Biden to apologize and said that the President’s comments were “insulting.” The RNC, in a statement to CNN, called Biden’s speech “despicable.”
“Joe Biden’s wretched attacks on millions of Americans have fueled attacks on pregnancy centers, Republican offices, and an assassination attempt on a Supreme Court Justice. His agenda has pitted neighbors against each other, rewarded the wealthy while punishing working families, and trampled on the rights and freedoms of Americans. Joe Biden is the divider-in-chief and epitomizes the current state of the Democrat Party: one of divisiveness, disgust, and hostility towards half the country,” the RNC said.
“Entering office, Biden promised a presidency of ‘unity.’ Since then, Biden has used the office to label those who didn’t go along with his agenda as dangerous, semi-fascist, and reinstating a ‘Jim Crow era,’” they said, adding: “Americans feel like the nation is on the wrong track with Joe Biden and congressional Democrats in power. The RealClearPolitics poll average found 70% of Americans say America is on the wrong track.”
In response, Matthew Sheffield, a journalist with The Young Turks, on Friday shared a clip of Trump from a campaign event in 2020 in which he said that Democrats wanted to “replace American freedom with left-wing fascism.”
“Fascists. They are fascists. Some of them, not all of them. But some of them, but they’re getting closer and closer. We have to win this election,” Trump said in the clip.
