A clip showing former president Donald Trump labelling Democrats as “fascists” is making the rounds online after conservatives attacked President Joe Biden for slamming “MAGA Republicans” in a prime-time address.
“President Biden tonight gave the speech of dictator in the style of a dictator, in the visual of a dictator, using the words of a dictator,” said Stephen Miller, a former senior adviser to Mr Trump, during an appearance on Fox News after the speech.
However, also in the wake of the speech, a video has since begun circulating that appears to show Mr Trump making a more blanketed attack on the party across the aisle, all while flanked by military personnel.
Matthew Sheffield, a journalist with The Young Turks, shared the clip of the one-term president on Twitter on Friday night.
We have to win this election,” Mr Trump adds in the since viral clip.
Mr Trump was known throughout his administration for giving progressives within the Democratic party unearned labels.
“The funniest part of people finding and reposting this is that at the time it got basically zero coverage because it was completely par for the course for Trump,” said Mr Hayes. »
