During an appearance on Hannity, former President Donald Trump claimed that President Joe Biden is “a threat to democracy.” Trump, known for his attempts to overturn the 2020 election results, which he falsely claimed was rigged against him, made this statement in response to being removed from presidential ballots in Colorado and Maine under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which prohibits federal officeholders who have engaged in “insurrection.”
In the interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Trump expressed confidence in the Supreme Court, stating that the “great justices” on the court would not take away the vote from the people. He then went on to criticize President Biden, describing him as “grossly incompetent” and attributing perceived threats to democracy to the people surrounding him, whom he labeled as “communists,” “Marxists,” and “fascists.”
Trump concluded his response by questioning how it could be justified to take away the vote. The interview highlights the ongoing political tension and disputes surrounding the aftermath of the 2020 election and the legal challenges faced by Trump.
