President Joe Biden gave a very controversial speech at Independence Hall in Pennsylvania on September 1st, 2022, that has many Conservatives outraged. Biden in his speech completely demonized former President Donald J. Trump and those who support him. Biden essentially declared President Trump and his supporters to be a “threat to the United States.”
Many likened the background of Biden at Independence Hall and his behavior to Nazi Germany Dictator Adolf Hitler giving a speech.
President Donald J. Trump posted on Truth Social, responding to Biden’s Speech:
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said in an interview on Fox News he thought the speech was “one of the most disgusting speeches an American President has ever given.” DeSantis called Biden out for claiming to be a unifier, yet was being divisive during the speech. He also called out Biden for demonizing those who politically opposed him. DeSantis called Biden “the American Nero” referring the Roman Emperor.

Last night’s speech was a truly despicable spectacle.
If you dissent from his agenda he considers you a “threat to democracy.” pic.twitter.com/1F4F8XEtxL
Florida Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis tweeted the following, expressing his concern about President Biden's Speech:
That was a frightening speech—Biden calling Republicans/Trump supporters a “threat to democracy” and calling Americans to “battle.”— Jimmy Patronis (@JimmyPatronis) September 2, 2022
So much for trying to “unite our nation.” He is dividing our nation.
Joe Biden’s speech was the real threat to democracy.
After that appalling Biden speech, if you’re an agent at the IRS, don’t you feel like the President of the United States just gave you marching orders to go after Conservatives and ruin their lives? Disgraceful.— Jimmy Patronis (@JimmyPatronis) September 3, 2022
Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott each tweeted responses to the speech:
Angry man smears half of the people of the country he is supposed to lead & promised to unite pic.twitter.com/Bfa84JBamM— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) September 2, 2022
I hear this raving lunatic attacked half the country tonight because they don’t agree with his liberal agenda to spend us into oblivion, open our borders, and send an army of IRS agents into our homes.— Rick Scott (@ScottforFlorida) September 2, 2022
I’m pretty happy being on the opposite side of that guy. pic.twitter.com/F8I8LyIcr9
“In one breath Biden says he’s President of all Americans, in the next he calls his opponents semi-fascists and threats to democracy.
We deserve better.”
