President Donald Trump has fired back at Joe Biden after the Democrat tried to mock his predecessor by referring to him as “The Great MAGA King.”
However, Biden’s attempts at mocking Trump almost immediately backfired.
Biden made the remarks while giving a speech in Chicago to the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.
He attempted to convince unions that inflation was not his fault by trying to shift the blame on Trump and his “MAGA crowd” supporters.
Biden failed, however.
While trying to smear Trump and his supporters, Biden tried to give the 45th POTUS a new nickname.
“Under my predecessor — The Great MAGA King — the deficit increased every single year he was president,” Biden said.
“The first year of my presidency, the first year, I reduced the deficit, literally reduced the deficit by $350 billion, first year.
“My Republican colleagues say these programs to help the working class and middle-class people, that, they say, that’s why we have inflation.
“They’re dead wrong,” Biden continued.
“I call it the ultra-MAGA plan, Make America Great Again plan.
“Right now, the majority of our Republican friends just see things differently.
“They don’t want to solve inflation just by lowering the cost.
“They want to solve it by raising taxes and lowering your income.
“If I didn’t see the actual document, I’d think I was making it up.
“The ultra-MAGA Republicans’ proposal puts, here’s what it does, it puts social security, Medicare — this is the Republican plan now, the only one out there — and Medicaid on the chopping block every five years.”

Trump responded to Biden by embracing the new nickname, however.
He trolled Biden with a Lord of the Rings meme.

Jesse Kelly said of Biden’s new Trump nickname:
“Is there some uniquely deformed part of the Democrat brain that causes them to assign nicknames for their enemies that make them sound awesome?”
