President Biden delivered a forceful address Thursday on what he called a dangerous assault on American democracy, warning that “too much of what’s happening in our country today is not normal” as “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”

 

Biden’s speech, outside Philadelphia’s Independence Hall, was a remarkable assessment from a sitting president that the fabric of American governance is under serious threat — “we do ourselves no favours to pretend otherwise,” he said.

 

While Biden did not name Republicans other than the former president Trump, he warned of election deniers who have won Republican primaries and those who have sought to overturn legitimate elections.
