(TheRedWire.com) – Following President Biden’s Jan. 6 anniversary speech, his campaign raised over one million in 24 hours just through online fundraising.
On Friday, Biden delivered a speech slamming former President Donald Trump, who is currently the frontrunner in the 2024 Republican primary race, and warned Americans that if Trump won the election it could destroy U.S. democracy. Marking the third anniversary of the Capitol attack, the U.S. President argued that democracy was on the ballot in the upcoming election.
Biden’s campaign noted in response to the 24-hour fundraising efforts, that in 2024 democracy would be one of the president’s political winners.
Biden’s deputy campaign manager Rob Flaherty pointed out that repeatedly in each election freedom and democracy have been two of the issues that have helped mobilize the American people and that the 2024 election would not be any different. He added that they are “encouraged by the strong grassroots enthusiasm.”
This was Biden’s first major general election speech ahead of the next election, and it was delivered close to Valley Forge, Pa. The area is a big symbol of the American Revolution. In his speech, Biden placed all his attention on attacking Trump, whom he referred to as a “loser.” He further pointed out everything that was at stake in the next election.
Trump responded to Biden’s speech by arguing that the President was “fearmongering” and that the only reason he was running on democracy was that he could not run on any other issue.
