Joe Biden says Trump supporters are a ‘threat to democracy’


US President Joe Biden has accused Republican supporters of making Donald Trump’s agenda and defending the slogan Make America Great Again (Making America Great Again) from being “a threat to democracy.

During a prime-time televised address to the country, Joe Biden said that “Republicans do not believe in the rule of law, do not recognize the will of the people, refuse to accept the outcome of free elections and undermine democracy leading to a setback of America that does not allow freedom of choice”.

The US President was speaking outside Independence Hall in Philadelphia, where the US Declaration of Independence was signed.

During his speech, he accused Donald Trump and his supporters of representing “extremism”.

Joe Biden added: “Not all Republicans, not even most Republicans are like that. Not everyone faces this extreme ideology. But, there is no room for doubt, today’s Republican Party is dominated and intimidated by Donald Trump and his supporters. This is a threat to our country,” he concluded.

The US President said that it is time to build a more “prosperous, free and fair” America, also stressing that “the integrity of the elections cannot be affected”.

Joe Biden’s statements come as part of the campaign for the November midterm elections, which will decide control of the two chambers of the US Congress.
