President Joe Biden maintains that “MAGA Republicans” pose a grave threat to American democracy, as was mentioned in the conversation. When questioned about the reason, Biden highlighted Republican voters’ fears about election integrity as the prerequisite.

Last week, while giving a speech with the support of two U.S. Biden vilified “MAGA Republicans” as a danger to the Republic, Marines. He has before threatened to use an F-15 fighter jet to bomb “right wing” Americans.
“The presence of the marines at the speech was intended to demonstrate the deep and abiding respect has for these service members, to these ideals and the unique role our independent military plays in defending our democracy.” Karine Jean-Pierre said in a press conference.
The next day, Biden softened his criticism of “MAGA Republican” and his press secretary persisted in supporting the tactic.
His communication team is currently working to explain as of right now.
