President Biden is scheduled to deliver a primetime address from Philadelphia Thursday night to warn the nation about the dangers posed by ‘MAGA Republicans’ and other ‘threats’ to American Democracy.
From Fox News:
The White House says President Biden will head to Philadelphia on Thursday for prime-time address where he will argue that America’s democracy remains “under attack” and highlight “who is fighting” to protect the nation’s freedoms.
The speech, in the crucial general election battleground state of Pennsylvania, comes less than 10 weeks ahead of the November’s midterm elections, when the Democrats hope to hold onto their razor-thin majorities in the House of Representatives and the Senate. The address also comes as Biden has raised his rhetoric in recent days, targeting what he argues are anti-Democratic “MAGA Republicans” who have embraced “semi-facism.”
The president will speak at Philadelphia’s Independence National Historical Park, where the Declaration of Independence and the nation’s Constitution were debated and signed.
“He will speak about how the core values of this nation — our standing in the world, our democracy — are at stake,” a White House official confirmed to Fox News. “He will talk about the progress we have made as a nation to protect our democracy, but how our rights and freedoms are still under attack.”
“What we’re seeing now is either the beginning or the death knell of an extreme MAGA philosophy,” Biden told Democratic donors at a gathering in Maryland. “It’s not just Trump,” he went on, “it’s the entire philosophy that underpins the — I’m going to say something: It’s like semi-fascism.”
