President Biden’s recent address to the Congressional Black Caucus has raised eyebrows after he claimed VP Harris was fighting for freedom and the Biden administration had rebuilt the economy. Here’s the full story.
The president’s remarks began with thanking his vice president and said she was “always fighting for freedom.”
Harris Is Doing an Incredible Job
He added that Harris is “doing an incredible job, and she really is. I told you I was gonna have a smart vice president and an African American woman, and we got one.”
The President then stressed his strong condemnation of the political division within Congress, singling out what he referred to as “extreme Republicans” who are willing to shut down the government.
President Biden highlighted the importance of reaching a bipartisan agreement on government funding to prevent a shutdown on October 1.
He stressed that a government shutdown would adversely affect various essential services, from food safety to cancer research to programs like Head Start for children.
Fulfill Basic Responsibilities
Biden urged Republicans to fulfill their basic responsibilities in Congress and work together to fund the government.
American Democracy Is at Risk
In his address, President Biden also touched on the upcoming 2024 election, echoing his previous statements about the state of American democracy being at risk.
Will Run Again
He said, “I might add, we won convincingly and clearly by a margin of seven million votes, 81 million votes cast. The most in history. And that victory withstood not one, but 60 legal court challenges and an insurrection on January 6. So I’m running again.”
Biden Rebuilt the Economy
The president also defended his ability to lead and said, “When I came to office, this nation was flat on its back. I knew what to do. I vaccinated the nation and rebuilt the economy. When Russia invaded Ukraine. I knew what to do. I rebuilt NATO. And brought our alliance to rally the world. And above all, when democracy was taken I knew what to do.”
Trump and His MAGA Republicans Are Spreading Division
On the topic of political division and violence in the United States, President Biden placed blame on former President Donald Trump and his base of supporters.
He said, “Let there be no question Donald Trump and his MAGA Republicans are determined to spread anger, hate, and division. They seek power at all costs, they’re determined to destroy this democracy.”
Biden Will Always Protect Democracy
“I cannot watch that happen, nor can you. And I’ll always defend, protect, and fight for our democracy,” he added.
Biden Owes the African-American Community
Furthermore, President Biden shared personal anecdotes from his history of involvement in the civil rights movement, emphasizing his connection to the African-American community.
He added, “When I ran the first time for the Senate at 29 years old, and Nixon won by 64% in my state, I won because virtually 90% of the African-American community — we have a large community — voted for me. I owe you.”
Twitter Users Expressed Their Views
Several social media users shared their thoughts on the incident.
One Twitter user wrote, “Blame game. In the end, our citizens get nothing and Joe Biden is 10% richer.”
Harris Is a Failure
Another user added, “Harris has failed at every task you set for her. Every single one. She has accomplished nothing. She is worthy of no praise.”
A third user commented, “No Brandon, it’s your spending problems that are pushing a shutdown. Budgets are agreed upon by both parties. If the government shuts down it is because “both parties” cannot agree on a budget.”
Biden Is Right
A fourth user wrote, “He’s right. As for Harris hailed as a “freedom fighter”, that might seem a bit over the top but I will give the nod to anyone fighting a far-right party bent on turning America into an authoritarian state.”
