Joe Biden Warns of Threats in the Final Midterm Campaign, and Trump Suggests a Second Run!

New York, November 6, 2018 (Reuters) – Two days before votes in which Republicans could take control of both chambers of Congress, President Joe Biden warned that a Republican victory in Tuesday’s midterm elections could weaken American democracy while former President Donald Trump made a hint at another run for the White House.

Despite keeping his promises to increase clean energy incentives and repair deteriorating roads and bridges, Biden’s Democrats face bleak prospects, as evidenced by the remarks, which he made at competing rallies in New York and Florida.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, Republicans have criticized Biden for high inflation and an uptick in crime, and independent pollsters predict that they will take control of the House of Representatives and perhaps the Senate as well. Early Democratic advantages in the races for the Senate in Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Nevada have vanished.

Republicans could thwart Democrat Joe Biden‘s legislative agenda and start potentially damaging investigations if they had control of even one chamber.

By repeating Trump’s false claims about a stolen election in 2020, many Republican candidates, Biden warned, are endangering democratic norms.

At Sarah Lawrence College, which is located outside of New York City, he told the students, “Democracy is literally on the ballot.” You can’t just love your country when you win, she said.


In the meantime, the former president reiterated many of his baseless criticisms of the 2020 election while also making a suggestion that he might soon declare another candidacy.

He criticized the Biden administration for everything from violent crime to filthy airports, saying, “I will probably have to do it again, but stay tuned.”

“Do you not feel the pain in just two short years?” At a rally in Georgia, Republican senatorial candidate Herschel Walker said. “They are watching this,”

Biden’s unpopularity has burdened Democrats and forced him to refrain from running for office in states with competitive elections. According to a Reuters/Ipsos survey released on Tuesday, only 40% of Americans are satisfied with their performance at work.

Outside of New York City, where Republicans are threatening to gain ground, Biden spoke in traditionally safe Democratic territory.

Democratic House incumbents are embroiled in close races across the state, and Republican Lee Zeldin is posing an unexpectedly tough challenge to New York Governor Kathy Hochul.
In Chicago, another Democratic stronghold, Vice President Kamala Harris stated that Democrats could pass federal abortion rights legislation if they increased their margins in the Senate. She added, “The president can sign it into law if we pick up two more senators.”

Jill Biden, the first lady, went to Texas, a heavily Republican state with a few tight races. She told worshippers at Houston’s Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church that one way they could practice their faith was by choosing the community leaders in their area.
