In the campaign, Biden launches his blows against the “far right” gathered in Trump

Unifying speeches, outstretched hand in opposition, are a thing of the past: Joe Biden, who wants to try to save his precarious control of Congress during this fall’s election, is now unleashing his blows against the “extreme” right acquired. in the ideas of his predecessor Donald Trump.

Summoned for a speech on the economy, reporters hoped to hear the Democratic president deliver his usual deliberately optimistic message about flourishing employment, strong growth and the fight against inflation.

The Democrat surprised by launching an unusual attack on Republican projects and more particularly on what he called the “MAGIC + movement”.

Through this acronym, which he hammered on Wednesday, Joe Biden is obviously addressing former President Donald Trump and his motto “Make America Great Again.”

The president had begun his term with the intention of turning the page on Trump, advocating for the demonstration and assuming “boredom” with his major economic and social projects, many of which have been shelved for lack of a sufficient parliamentary majority.

Trump like a scarecrow

A few months before the midterm legislative elections, historically lost by the very unpopular party of President Joe Biden, it has completely changed course.

It is no longer a question of making Donald Trump forgotten, but rather of stirring him up – without mentioning his name directly – as a scarecrow to revive the Democratic electorate and dramatize the stakes of this election.

Joe Biden on Wednesday criticized an economic program recently introduced by Republican Sen. Rick Scott. “It’s extreme, like most things related to the MAGA movement,” he said, blaming the opposition for wanting to severely tax the middle class.

“This MAGA movement is really the most extreme political organization in American history, in recent American history,” said Joe Biden, questioned about the right to abortion.

According to an internal document released by Politico, the U.S. Supreme Court is preparing to pour the constitutional right to abortion that has existed since 1973, leaving the field open to many conservative states that want to ban abortion.

It would be an undeniable political victory for supporters of Donald Trump, who gave the Supreme Court its current decidedly conservative dimension.

Joe Biden, despite being a devout Catholic, has no doubt taken on the mantle of the first advocate for the right to abortion, investing in a field he had not frequented much so far: that of “cultural wars.”

These “cultural wars” are the many social debates that have shaken America for decades, but have increased in recent years to the point of dividing the country into two irreconcilable camps that oppose the right to abortion, gender, sexuality. , upbringing, religion, etc. firearms, racial issues, and reading about the country’s history, especially when it comes to slavery and segregation.

“Cultural wars”

The Democratic president and his party say Republicans will not stop aborting. “They will try to take us back to a time when women, people of color, and LGBTQ people were second-class citizens,” said Senate Leader Chuck Schumer.

“What if a state says LGBTQ + kids can no longer go to the same classrooms as other kids?” Joe Biden asked Wednesday.

The conservative website The Federalist, criticizing the president’s statements, criticized Democrats for spreading unfounded “dystopian prophecies.”

It remains to be seen how much Donald Trump will weigh in on the Republican campaign for the midterm elections.

A newcomer to Ohio on Tuesday, an industrial state in the Midwest where Joe Biden will also attend on Friday, has confirmed, in any case, his persistent influence in the party.

It is his foal, JD Vance, who won the Republican primary in this state and who will face the current Democratic senator from Ohio.

“I must absolutely thank the 45th President of the United States,” said the candidate, who in the past had violently criticized the Republican billionaire, before swearing allegiance to him.

“Many journalists … wanted to write an article saying that the first death would be the death of Donald Trump’s program for the United States! Ladies and gentlemen, (this program) is not dead!”
