In spite of his federal indictment, Jill Biden voiced her amusement this week at the steadfast followers of the former president who are still standing by him.
According to AP, she told a group of Democratic contributors gathered at the residence of Barry Ginsburg along with his wife Merle in Manhattan that the election in 2024 offers a clear choice between President Biden’s “strong, constant leadership” and “a state of chaos in addition to corruption, and hatred, as well as division” of the “MAGA Republicans.”
The first lady then expressed her amusement at seeing a story just before her plane touched down that stated that most Republicans in a survey said they still planned to vote for Trump, who is scheduled to appear in court in Florida this week, according to Breitbart News.
“They are unconcerned with the indictment. So it’s a little startling, I think,” she remarked, conceding that a sizable portion of Republicans continues to back Trump unwaveringly.
Then, Biden continued to challenge Trump supporters’ motivations, convictions, and allegiance, pleading for Democratic contributors to “think about where we were as a nation three years ago.”
“We are aware of what the MAGA Republicans have in store. Right, we are simply aware of it. Because we experienced it, we know. We have witnessed it,” she remarked.
“We are aware of what it’s like to watch late-night tweet storms on US policy.”
“We can’t go right back to such dark days,” she said, referencing Trump’s presidency and the importance of the election in 2018.
Trump, for his part, has already vowed to prove his innocence and that he will “never leave” the 2024 presidential campaign, regardless of whether he is found guilty of any of the accusations made against him.
The examination into how Trump handled White House papers by Special Counsel Jack Smith is what led to the indictment.
“I AM AN INNOCENT MAN!” Donald Trump said in reaction to the news of the classified documents case.
