“The crook” and the “deranged”: Trump and Biden insult each other from a distance

Between two hearings at his criminal trial in New York, Donald Trump (2017-2021) campaigns in front of the most fervent supporters of the right to own firearms, enshrined in the 2nd Amendment to the American Constitution.

Biden “by far the worst president in the history of our country”, according to Trump

Traveling to Dallas, Texas, the former President of the United States received the support of the National Rifle Association (NRA) during its annual meeting, a powerful lobby with which the 77-year-old Republican billionaire maintains special relations. The NRA paid him tens of millions of dollars for his successful 2016 campaign.

In front of thousands of members of the organization, Donald Trump declared that Joe Biden was “by far the worst president in the history of our country” and “unspeakable stupidity”. “You’re fired, get out Joe!” “, he said to the laughter of the audience, telling them that Biden was going to attack their firearms. He described the current president as “Joe the crook”, his favorite epithet to speak of his rival, believing that he is a “threat to democracy”.

Biden: “My opponent is not a good loser, but he is a loser”

Joe Biden is in Georgia (in the southeast of the United States), a state that he narrowly won in 2020, notably to campaign among African-American voters. “My opponent is not a good loser, but he is a loser,” said Biden, campaigning in a restaurant in this state, in Atlanta, adding that “our democracy is really in danger.”

On Friday, in Minnesota, Donald Trump reaffirmed his theory, never proven, according to which the 2020 presidential election, won by his rival Joe Biden, was rigged. The Democrat reacted Saturday, declaring that his opponent “is not just obsessed with his 2020 defeat. He is clearly disturbed.” “We cannot let this man become president. The future of our children is at stake,” he told the audience gathered at Mary Mac’s Tea Room, a restaurant in Atlanta’s black community.

Donald Trump will continue to sacrifice the safety of our children and our communities to satisfy his special interests.

Donald Trump has already promised that if he returned to power, he would unravel the firearms regulation measures put in place during his mandate by the current president, and which are considered timid by supporters of a stricter control. While Joe Biden promises to act to ban semi-automatic rifles, used in the deadliest shootings, Trump promises the status quo and wants to be the candidate of gun owners. “The Democrats want to take their guns, and they will take them,” he assured Friday in Minnesota.

“President Biden and I will continue to take on the gun lobby to keep Americans safe, while Donald Trump will continue to sacrifice the safety of our children and our communities to satisfy his special interests,” he replied. , Saturday, Vice President Kamala Harris.

49,000 people died from gunshots in 2021

The United States has more individual firearms in circulation than people, a proliferation which results in a very high rate of firearm deaths in the United States, incomparable to that of other developed countries. Around 49,000 people died by gunfire in 2021, compared to 45,000 in 2020, already a record year, or more than 130 deaths per day, more than half of them by suicide.
