Biden says he's an optimist. But his dire warnings about Trump have become central to his campaign
November 20, 2023
WASHINGTON - President Joe Biden ends nearly every speech by saying he's "never been more optimistic" about the country's direction. But lately he also has begun painting a vision of a catastrophic future for the United States - that is, if Donald Trump returns to the presidency.
Biden in recent days has accused the former Republican president of being ''determined to destroy American democracy'' and being out for ''revenge'' and ''retribution."
Biden's reelection campaign is sending more emails with stark warnings: ''Trump's America in 2025: A Unilateral National Abortion Ban'' and ''Trump's America in 2025: Mass Detention Camps." Trump has proposed the largest operation to arrest and deport migrants in U.S. history. He has not endorsed a a federal ban on abortion.
