SANTA MONICA, Calif. U.S. President Joe Biden will be in Philadelphia today and give a live speech to the world to discuss his views about the current state of Democracy in the United States.
According to the New York Times, Biden is expected to say, in direct language, “how the MAGA Republicans have put the nation’s institutions at risk and undermined democratic values.”
Coming just weeks before the midterm elections, the speech may combat some of the violent rhetoric that has recently originated from the Republican Party and former President Donald J. Trump. Recently, Senator Lindsey Graham said there would be “riots in the streets” if Trump is prosecuted for possibly stealing classified documents and storing them at his multi-million dollar mansion/resort in Mar-a-Logo in Palm Beach, Florida.
After former President Trump’s fiery speech on January 6, 2021 and the Capitol Riot, the U.S. government held hearings to find out who was responsible for that day’s attack on democracy.
