Biden Criticizes Trump at NATO Summit
President Biden criticized his predecessor on Monday at a press conference after a one-day NATO summit, accusing former President Donald J. Trump of “phony populism.”
The Republican Party is vastly diminished in numbers. The leadership of the Republican Party is fractured, and the Trump wing of the party is the bulk of the party but it makes up a significant minority of the American people. It is a shock and surprise that what’s happened in terms of consequence of President Trump’s phony populism has — has happened. And it is disappointing that so many of my Republican colleagues in the Senate, who I know know better, have been reluctant to take on, for example, an investigation because they’re worried about being primaried. But at the end of the day, we’ve been through periods like this in American history before, where there has been this reluctance to take a chance on your re-election because of the nature of your party’s politics at the moment. I think this is passing — I don’t mean easily passing. That’s why it’s so important that I succeed in my agenda. The agenda, whether it’s dealing with the vaccine, the economy, infrastructure, it’s important that we demonstrate we can make progress and continue to make progress. And I think we’re going to be able to do that.
