With Conservatives criticizing his administration for the economic situation, the 79-year-old Democrat targeted Republicans who joined former President Donald Trump in denying Biden’s victory in the 2020 election.
“There are candidates in competition for positions at all levels in America … who don’t commit to accepting the election results they are conducting, “Biden said in a televised speech.
He added that their goal was to follow Trump’s approach and try to “sabotage the electoral system”, noting that questmore than 300 Republicans who deny elections participate in competitions in all over the country. “They encouraged political violence and intimidation of voters and election officials,” he said, less than two years after Trump supporters tried to storm the Capitol to overturn the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.
“This paves the way for chaos in America, “Biden said.” It’s unprecedented, illegal and un-American. “
Biden’s warnings about threats to democracy come six days before Tuesday’s midterm election, in which Republicans are more likely to control the House and possibly the Senate.
