Trump Fires Back at Joe Biden in Pennsylvania: ‘Enemy of the State’

We had to suspect that it wouldn’t take long for Trump to respond to the accusations hurled at him by Joe Biden during a raucous, widely-mocked prime time address last week, but its unlikely that anyone accurately predicted just how strong that retort would be.

Trump, who was in Pennsylvania to lend support to a number of Republican congressional candidates there, absolutely torched President Biden, suggesting that he is an “enemy of the state”.

Speaking to supporters in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania on Saturday, the former president addressed Biden’s primetime speech by deeming it the “most vicious, hateful, and divisive speech ever delivered by a [U.S.] president.”

Trump claimed Biden was “vilifying 75 million citizens, plus another probably 75 to 150 [million], if we want to be accurate about it, as threats to democracy and as enemies of the state.”

“You’re all enemies of the state,” he told the crowd to boos against Biden. “He’s an enemy of the state if you want to know the truth. The enemy of the state is him and the group that control him, which is circling around him. ‘Do this, do that, Joe.’”

The former President also took a shot at the aesthetics of the event.

Trump railed against the speech further, saying it was nothing but “hatred and anger” from the president. He also noted the red background for the speech, which numerous critics have mocked and criticized.

“How’d you like the red lighting behind him like the devil?” Trump asked the crowd.

Trump and Biden will likely continue to trade these tawdry barbs, particularly as the two remain destined to face one another in 2024’s presidential election.
