The former president of the United States was at a campaign rally on Saturday in Pennsylvania for the midterm elections.
He called him an “enemy of the state “. Former US President Donald Trump responded to Joe Biden on Saturday, September 3, and sued for incompetence, during a campaign rally in Pennsylvania, a key state in the battle for control of the two chambers. In Wilkes-Barre, a small town near Scranton, birthplace of Joe Biden, Donald Trump had come to support Republican candidates in the next midterm elections scheduled for November 8.
In front of his supporters, the Republican billionaire also denounced the spectacular FBI search of his residence in Mar-a-Lago, Florida, on August 8. He called the investigative act “one of the most shocking abuses of power by any administration in American history” .
“His speech was only hatred and anger”
The day before, Joe Biden had attacked Donald Trump with rare virulence, accusing him of representing, with “the ‘MAGA Republicans'” (for “Make america great again” ), “an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic” . In Philadelphia, Joe Biden had even called for saving “the soul of America” , castigating those who “do not respect the Constitution”, “do not believe in the rule of law”, “do not recognize the will of the people” .
“He is the enemy of the state ,” replied Donald Trump. He called his speech “the most vicious, hateful and divisive ever delivered by an American president”. “His speech was only hatred and anger” , he insisted, in unison with his supporters.
Donald Trump also denounced inflation and a rise in insecurity. He who openly plans to run again in 2024 also wanted to draw up the most negative possible assessment of Joe Biden, in a speech that sometimes took on the accents of a presidential campaign.
Donald Trump took a mass bath on Saturday night in Pennsylvania, and took the opportunity to declare that the true enemy for the United States was his successor, Joe Biden. He also accused the US president of using the FBI against him.
It was his first public appearance since the August 8 raid on his Mar-a-Lago mansion, and it did not go unnoticed. On Saturday night, from Pennsylvania, Donald Trump called Joe Biden an “enemy of the state.”
The attack intervenes as a response to his successor. Joe Biden declared in effect this week that Donald Trump and Republican supporters “represent extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”
Trump called that speech the “most vicious, hateful, and divisive speech ever delivered by an American president.” Before striking back: “The Republicans in the ‘Make America Great Again’ movement are not the ones trying to undermine our democracy. We are the ones trying to save our democracy, very simply. The danger to democracy comes from the radical left, not from the right”.
The former president’s speech at a Wilkes-Barre pavilion came at a time of mounting legal pressure on him over documents found by the FBI at his Mar-a-Lago estate. And his speech was also the occasion to describe the search as a “parody of justice”: “There cannot be a more vivid example of the very real threats to American freedom than just a few weeks ago, you saw, when we witnessed one of the most outrageous abuses of power by any administration in the history of the United States,” Trump said.
However, such a claim that the Biden administration may have directed the raid runs counter to long-standing protocols, under which the Justice Department and the FBI act independently of the White House. Still, Trump warned that this “appalling abuse of the law” would produce “a backlash the likes of which has never been seen.”
The Justice Department said highly classified government documents, including some marked “Top Secret,” were discovered in Trump’s personal office during the raid. A detailed list of what was seized also showed that Trump had more than 11,000 unclassified government records that he claims are his but are legally owned by the country’s National Archives.
