President Donald Trump has fired back at President Joe Biden for calling MAGA the “most extreme political organization that’s existed in recent American history.”
“MAGA is saving America,” Trump blasted.
“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 added that Biden is “being very divisive.”
Trump continued: “That’s all they know – misinformation.
“That is all they are good at.
“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.
“That’s what they’re good at,” Trump said.
Trump was responding to recent comments by Biden.
During a press conference, Biden went off script and bizarrely started attacking the “MAGA crowd.”
“What happens if you have state changes the law saying that children who are LGBTQ can’t be in classrooms with other children?” Biden said.
“Is that legit under the way this decision is written? What are the next things that are going to be attacked?
“Because this MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history. Recent American history.”
“I believe I have the rights that I have not because the government gave them to me…but because I’m just a child of God. I exist.”
Biden said: “Bringing down the deficit is one way to ease inflationary pressures in an economy, where a consequence of a war and gas prices and oil, food, and it all – it’s just a different world right this moment because of Ukraine and Russia.
“There is no reason why a billionaire should be paid a lower tax rate than a teacher or firefighter.”

Still, some allies and Democrats privately worry that Biden may not be able to handle the rigors of another campaign.
A bone he broke in his foot while playing with his dog in late November 2020 still occasionally bothers Biden, resulting in a slower and shorter gait.
And the White House has largely abandoned using the Oval Office for press events in part because it can’t be permanently equipped with a teleprompter; Biden aides prefer the fake White House stage built in the Old Executive Office Building next door for events, sacrificing some of the power of the historic backdrop in favor of an otherwise sterile room that was outfitted with an easily read teleprompter screen.
And if Biden were to run again in 2024, it almost certainly would be a more rigorous campaign than the one he previously mounted.
The outbreak of Covid kept Biden in his Delaware home for much of the 2020 general election campaign, sparing him the wear and tear of relentless travel.
