White House Twitter account becomes key weapon in Biden’s MAGA fight

The White House Twitter account has become more aggressive towards former President Donald Trump and his supporters in recent weeks.

The Twitter page, which previously only reported President Joe Biden’s recent appearances and speeches, has turned to active criticism of opponents.

Speaking Thursday at Philadelphia’s Independence Hall, Biden said supporters of Trump and Make America Great Again (MAGA) are a threat to America’s future

Despite the attack, Biden clarified that he does not see Republicans in general, or the majority of Republicans, as a threat.

However, the White House Twitter page has been critical of MAGA supporters and their beliefs.

“The MAGA agenda is focused on pushing back our country” read a tweet.

195 House Republicans voted against the Contraceptive Right Act. 157 Republicans voted against the Marriage Respect Act,” it said. “Republicans in Congress commended the Supreme Court for overthrowing Roe v. Calf.”

“MAGA Republican elected officials refuse to accept results of free and fair elections,” read another tweet read the white house.

“147 Republicans in Congress voted to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“MAGA Republicans in Congress regard the mob that stormed the US Capitol on Jan. 6 as patriots,” read a third tweet.

“On the anniversary of the violent uprising, Congressman Matt Gaetz said, ‘We are proud of the work we did on January 6 to make legitimate arguments for the integrity of the election.’

The White House has defended the rhetoric disseminated by its Twitter page.

This comes after Republicans criticized Biden’s plan to eliminate some student loan debt for many Americans.

In one instance, the White House said some Republicans who had denounced Biden’s plan, including Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene and Pennsylvania Representative Mike Kelly, had loans forgiven through the Paycheck Protection Program. (PPP)

White House spokeswoman Alexandra LaManna spoke news week on the matter, saying: “We have never hesitated to invoke hypocrisy and we will not stop now.

“It’s important to clarify that many of the same people who were calling for student loan debt relief – which will help the middle class and working families by giving them more breathing room – had a bailout for the wealthy, no problem with that.” bailed out loans that benefited their own businesses.”

Thomas Gift, Associate Professor of Political Science at University College London news week that the shift in rhetoric reflects Biden’s administration realizing it cannot win over Trump natives.

“There’s no denying that Biden has taken a less accommodating tone towards his opponents lately,” he said.

“To some extent, it reflects a more realistic approach to America’s polarization problem.

Although Biden took office with high hopes of ‘converting’ the far right, he has finally and belatedly come to the realization that he will never win over the die-hard Trumps.

“It gives him more leeway to criticize her.”

He also stressed that Biden is still trying to show he can work with some Republicans, as highlighted in his speech.

“Biden has coupled this more aggressive rhetoric by more consciously distinguishing Moderates from ‘Ultra-MAGA’ voters and extending an olive branch to ‘mainstream’ Republicans,” Gift added.

news week has reached out to the White House for comment.
