A day after launching an attack on Trump supporters, or MAGA Republicans, President Biden is already backtracking.
Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked President Biden if he sees all Trump supporters as "a threat to the country." Biden walked it back and said he only sees those who threaten violence pose a threat to the country.
“Come on, look guys, you keep trying to make that case, and I don’t consider any Trump supporter to be a threat to the country,” Biden said. “I do think anyone who calls for the use of violence, fails to condemn violence when it’s used, and refused to acknowledge an election that’s been won, insists upon changing the way in which the rules and count votes, that is a threat to democracy. Democracy. And everything we stand for, everything we stand for, rests on the platform of democracy.”
“When people voted for Donald Trump and support him now, they weren’t voting for attacking the Capitol, they weren’t voting for overruling an election, they were voting for a philosophy he put forward,” he continued. “So I am not talking about anything other than it is inappropriate, and it is not only happening here, but other parts of the world, the failure to recognize and condemn violence whenever it’s used for political purposes, failure to condemn, attempt to manipulate electoral outcomes, failure to acknowledge when elections were won or lost.”

It's been a strange week for President Biden, who is probably very ready to get to the weekend and retreat to his Delaware beach house.
