45th President Donald J. Trump on Thursday told Fox News Digital that “MAGA is saving America” following Joe Biden’s criticism toward Trump’s followers when the Democrat career politician called the “MAGA crowd” the “most extreme political organization that’s existed in recent American history.”
Biden’s assertion came in response to a question about Monday night’s leak draft opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito regarding Roe v. Wade.
“MAGA is saving America,” Trump told Fox News. “Our country is going to hell. MAGA is saving America.”
“Inflation, incompetent withdrawals from Afghanistan, leaving hostages horribly wounded, soldiers, $85 billion of military equipment – MAGA is saving America,” he expressed.
The 45th President also said the U.S. is “no longer respected throughout the world.”
“Ukraine should have never happened,” Trump said, declaring that “Russia would have never gone into Ukraine” under his leadership. “MAGA is saving our country,” Trump said again. Continued Below
When asked for reaction on Biden’s remarks that the Republican Party is now the “MAGA party,” the 45th President replied: “I hope so. I hope so.”
Trump went on to tell Fox News that Biden is “being very divisive”, saying, “Of course he is. That’s all they know – misinformation. That is all they are good at.” … “Russia, Russia, Russia” investigation and “all of the other things that have now been caught.”
“He is being very divisive but it is more than that, it is all misinformation just like the Russia, Russia, Russia hoax and all of the hoaxes,” he said again. “That’s what they’re good at.” Continued Below
Last month, Biden also asserted, “This ain’t your father’s Republican Party. This is a MAGA party now. These guys are a different breed of cat. They’re not like who I served with so many years. And the people who know better are afraid to act correctly, because they know they’ll be primaried.”
Regarding the draft leak obtained by Politico, Justice Samuel Alito writes in the document, labeled the “Opinion of the Court” for the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization: “We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled. It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”
Alito also noted that Americans hold “sharply conflicting views” on the subject. “Some believe fervently that a human person comes into being at conception and that abortion ends an innocent life. Others feel just as strongly that any regulation of abortion invades a woman’s right to control her own body and prevents women from achieving full equality.”
“Still others in a third group think that abortion should be allowed under some but not all circumstances, and those within this group hold a variety of views about the particular restrictions that should be imposed,” he wrote.
