Trump: ‘Biden is the Real Threat to Democracy

Donald Trump has hit back at allegations that his potential return to the White House would mean an end to the country’s democracy. 

Despite the fact that he is currently embroiled in string of egregious lawsuits – both federal and civil – Trump is still gaining in popularity among the GOP electorate.

As it stands right now, Trump narrowly leads Biden in hypothetical rematch, according to a new poll.

So unless the Democrats’ carefully constructed lawfare operation can keep him off the electoral ballot in any of the 50 states, then Biden (or whoever Democrats eventually decide to run against him) is sure to struggle in the 2024 general election. 

Clearly, it’s not the 45th President of the republic who is undermining democracy right now.

Well, turnabout is fair play…

CNN reports…

Former President Donald Trump on Saturday characterized warnings that his victory in 2024 would represent a threat to democracy as a “hoax” and “Democrat misinformation.”

The former president, who faces federal and state charges stemming from his efforts to overturn the 2020 election, said in a speech hosted by the New York Young Republican Club that President Joe Biden “is the real threat to democracy.”

“Can you believe it? This is their new line, you know,” Trump said. “Here we go again — ‘Russia, Russia, Russia,’ ‘Mueller, Mueller, Mueller,’ ‘Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine.’ One hoax after another.”

“But no, I’m not a threat. I will save democracy. The threat is Crooked Joe Biden,” Trump said. “And that’s what it is, it’s a hoax. We call it now the threat-to-democracy hoax, because that’s what it is.”

The former president, who said last week that he wouldn’t be a dictator if reelected “except for Day 1” to address the border and domestic oil production, complained about how those remarks had been characterized, saying he never claimed he wanted to be a dictator.

“I said I want to be a dictator for one day,” Trump said. “And you know why I want to be a dictator? Because I want a wall … and I want to drill, drill, drill.”

Trump said later that Democrats’ attacks regarding democracy were a “desperate and shameless attempt to distract from the monstrous abuses of power the left is committing before your very eyes.” He pointed to more than a dozen state-level petitions to remove him from the 2024 ballot, citing a clause of the Constitution’s 14th Amendment barring those who have engaged in “insurrection or rebellion” from office.

Biden and Democrats have warned that electing Trump again in 2024 could erode the foundations of American democracy. The president said at a fundraiser Saturday in Los Angeles that “the greatest threat Trump poses is to the democracy.”
