Former Vice President Mike Pence is the latest Republican to call out President Joe Biden for his Philadelphia speech.
Pence asked the audience at the Concerned Women for America, an anti-abortion group, if they had seen Biden’s speech.
“Did you see the speech last week?” Pence queried.
He continued, “President Biden held a partisan campaign rally at Independence Hall in Philadelphia, flanked by uniformed United States Marines, and revealed what’s truly at stake in the next election.”
Pence homed in on Biden’s comments about anti-abortion activists moving the country backward.
Taking aim at those comments, Pence continued, “The president made it clear that he views pro-life Americans as enemies of democracy.”
Since the Supreme Court struck down the 1973 Roe v Wade ruling, Pence has called on various states to pass legislation to restrict abortions.
The former Vice President reiterated a quote by Biden, stating that Biden “said that anyone who refuses to bend the knee to his extremist left-wing ideology represents ‘an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.'”
Pence then took issue with Biden’s claims those who supported pro-life were a “threat to this country.”
“Never before in the history of our nation has a president stood before the American people and accused millions of his own countrymen of being a ‘threat to this country,'” Pence stated.
“To top it off, President Biden had the audacity to claim, ‘I’m asking our nation to come together, to unite.'”
Pence has been the first among his Republican counterparts to call out Biden’s comments on pro-life supporters.
Most of his counterparts took issue with Biden’s comments about “MAGA Republicans” criticizing the FBI.
