Donald Trump is firing back at Joe Biden after he attacked the former president’s supporters by claiming that MAGA is the”most extreme political organization that’s existed in recent American history.”
“MAGA is saving America,” Trump told Fox News. “Our country is going to hell. MAGA is saving America.”
“Inflation, incompetent withdrawals from Afghanistan, leaving hostages horribly wounded, soldiers, $85 billion of military equipment – MAGA is saving America,” he continued, adding that the U.S. is “no longer respected throughout the world.”
“Ukraine should have never happened,” Trump said, going on to add that “Russia would have never gone into Ukraine” if he were still in office.
“MAGA is saving our country,” Trump reiterated to conclude his statement.
This came one day after Biden responded to the leaked draft opinion that suggests the Supreme Court is preparing to overturn Roe V. Wade by saying that this is “about a lot more than abortion.” He then said that the “MAGA crowd” is “the most extreme political organization that’s existed in recent American history.”
Despite going into office claiming that he wanted to be the “unity president,” Biden has attacked Republicans time and time again since then. Last month, he said that the modern GOP “ain’t your father’s Republican Party,” saying that it has become the “MAGA party” and conservative lawmakers “who know better” are “afraid to act correctly” lest they be voted out of office.
When asked if the GOP is really becoming the “MAGA party,” Trump replied, “I hope so. I hope so.”
Trump was then asked if Biden is “being very divisive.”
“Of course he is,” Trump said. “That’s all they know – misinformation. That is all they are good at.”
To make this point, he cited the “Russia, Russia, Russia” investigation and “all of the other things that have now been caught.”
“He is being very divisive but it is more than that, it is all misinformation just like the Russia, Russia, Russia hoax and all of the hoaxes,” Trump continued. “That’s what they’re good at.”
This comes at a victorious time for Trump, as the 22 candidates that he endorsed in Ohio and Indiana won all of their primary races.
“I was 22 and 0,” Trump said as he took a victory lap. “I won every race.”
“It was a great evening for the Republican Party and we love all of our candidates from Indiana, from Ohio, I went 22 and 0,” Trump later added. “I think we’re going to have a tremendous season, I think we’re going to win a lot of races with great candidates who are going to go on to big numbers in the fall.”
