Democrat President Joe Biden has issued a warning to voters about the so-called threat to “American democracy” ahead of the nearing 2024 presidential election.
According to Biden, the American people face living in a “nightmare” if they re-elect President Donald Trump in November.
The Democrat president claims that blocking Trump from taking back the White House is the only way that voters can look back and say “We saved American democracy.”
Biden made the claims on Sunday during a series of campaign events in Nevada ahead of the state’s primary.
He falsely claimed that Trump has aspirations to be a “dictator” because of his vow of “retribution” for his supporters following Jan. 6.
“We have to keep the White House,” Biden said.
“We must keep the Senate.
Only then “we can say we saved American democracy,” Biden added during his slurring speech.
“Imagine the nightmare of Donald Trump,” he warned.
Meanwhile, Trump’s campaign responded to the remarks with the same tone.
Trump campaign spokesman Steven Cheung declared:
“Biden has been a nightmare for this country in just three short years in the White House, and no amount of gaslighting will make Americans forget about all the misery and destruction he has brought.”
Biden’s re-election strategy so far relies on arguing that Trump is a major threat to so-called “American democracy.”
In recent months, Democrats have been pushing the rhetoric that blocking Trump from running in the election is necessary in order to “save democracy.”
The White House’s other strategies for stirring up support have largely failed, however.
“Bidenomics” has been a complete flop and Americans are deeply skeptical of Biden’s ability to handle the border crisis.
Meanwhile, Biden trails Trump, the frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination, by 22 points when voters were asked who would be a better candidate to handle the economy.
According to the results of a national NBC News poll released Sunday, 55% of registered voters said they believe Trump would be the better candidate to steer the economy, compared to 33% who chose Biden.
Trump also boasted large leads over Biden when it comes to securing the border (+35 points), having the necessary mental and physical health to be president (+23), and dealing with crime and violence (+21).
The 45th president also has double-digit leads over Biden when it comes to being competitive and effective (+16) and when it comes to improving America’s standing in the world (+11).
Overall, the poll showed Trump leading Biden by five percentage points, 47% to 42%, among registered voters in a hypothetical 2024 general election rematch.
