This past Saturday, President Joe Biden and the Democratic Party found themselves the target of the ire of Former President Donald Trump at a rally held in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania alongside Republican candidates Mehmet Oz and Doug Mastriano.
The event, titled “Save America,” was the very first rally appearance for Trump in the wake of the FBI raid being carried out back on the 8th of August against his Florida home at Mar-A-Lago. Trump dedicated a significate portion of his allotted time for speaking to a speech on the “corruption and extremism” of the Democratic Party.
“Republicans in the ‘MAGA’ movement are not the ones trying to undermine our democracy. We are the ones trying to save our democracy,” stated Trump. “The danger to democracy comes from the radical Left, not from the Right.”
The former president then leaped straight back into criticizing the Department of Justice for issuing approval for the FBI raid at his Mar-a-Lago home located in Southern Florida. Trump labeled the raid “one of the most shocking abuses of power of any administration in American history.”
“The shameful raid and break-in of my home in Mar-a-Lago was a travesty of justice that made a mockery of America’s laws, traditions, and principles before the entire world,” he stated. Trump stated that the raid was allowed to happen due to a false pretext and was signed off by a judge that was “handpicked” by those within the administration.
The Trump rally in Pennsylvania took place just a scant few days after Old Uncle Joe issued what quite a few are calling a divisive and dark speech to those in attendance at Independence Hall. The former president called out Biden over the extremely dark speech wherein he went after Trump and those who support him.
“As you know, this week Joe Biden came to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to give the most vicious, hateful, and divisive speech ever delivered by an American president, vilifying 75 million citizens … as threats to democracy and enemies of the state,” exclaimed Trump before going after Biden and labeling him “an enemy of the state.”
Both Pennsylvania Senate candidate Oz and gubernatorial candidate Mastriano also took time to issue remarks at the rally as they make their way down the campaign trail and fight tight races against their Democrat opponents. Democrat candidates John Fetterman and Josh Shapiro both sit squarely ahead of both of the Trump-endorsed Mastriano and Oz as they enter the last couple of months of the campaign, as reported by RealClearPolitics.
