President Joe Biden Wednesday said the “MAGA crowd” is “the most extreme political organization that’s existed in recent American history.”
The former president countered that MAGA is saving America and called President Biden “divisive,” according to a Fox News report.
“MAGA is saving America,” Trump told the network. “Our country is going to hell. MAGA is saving America.”
Trump opined the U.S. is no longer respected by the rest of the world. “Inflation, incompetent withdrawals from Afghanistan, leaving hostages horribly wounded, soldiers, $85 billion of military equipment,” Trump continued, “MAGA is saving America.”
“Ukraine should have never happened,” Trump said, explaining Russia would have never attacked Ukraine if he were president. He repeated his claim that, “MAGA is saving America.”
The Biden remarks that prompted the Trump rebuttal were issued in the wake of a leaked copy of a U.S. Supreme Court decision in an abortion case. The draft opinion authored by Justice Samuel Alito may not prevail, but if it does, national access to abortion-on-demand will end. Biden’s frustration with state legislatures having the ability to criminalize abortion in their states likely prompted the presidential outburst. He began by saying “it’s about a lot more than abortion” before segueing into his pejorative remarks about Trump followers.
Trump later said to Fox News that Biden is “being very divisive.”
“Of course he is,” Trump reportedly said. “That’s all they know – misinformation. That is all they are good at.” The report notes Trump pointed to the “Russian collusion” investigation that lately seems to be bearing fruit with increasing action from special prosecutor John Durham. Durham indicted Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman for lying to the FBI when he said he was not working on behalf of a client when he peddled an alleged Trump-Russia connection. Jury selection for Sussman’s trial is scheduled to begin May 16.
Trump called Biden smears “misinformation” just like the claims of collusion between his 2016 campaign and Russia.
“That’s what they’re good at,” he concluded.
