Biden criticized Republicans, Trump’s ‘phony populism’ and fractured GOP at Brussels press conference



President Joe Biden was asked a few tough questions at his press conference, at the end of the NATO session at the headquarters in Brussels, on Monday. His replies may have jolted the GOP back home but has brought forth his views to a world that has been surprised by the January 6 insurrection. He said that Trump’s “phony populism” had “fractured” the GOP.


When asked about what he told world leaders who had been rattled by the January 6 riot and about Donald Trump’s hold on the GOP in the aftermath of the January 6 storming of the Capitol Biden said that it was appropriate to say that the Republican party was vastly diminished in numbers and that the leadership of the Republican Party was diminished. He also said that the Trump wing of the party was the bulk of the party, but it was “a significant minority of the American people.”


Biden continued and said that American people were good. He said that the character of the American people was that of “a decent, honorable nation.” He also mentioned the enthusiasm that he met with in his first trip abroad.


Biden also said he was disappointed that so many of his Republican colleagues in the Senate whom he knew had been reluctant to take on an investigation because they were worried about being primaried.

Biden was referring to a 9/11 style committee to look into the January 6 insurrection, but the Democrats did not get sufficient votes that could override a Republican filibuster.


He also mentioned that American history is replete with instances of reluctance by politicians to take a chance on reelection because of the nature of their party’s politics but he believed that “it is passing.” He also mentioned that it he didn’t mean “easily passing.”


Biden also spoke of the importance of his agenda to be passed which included the vaccine efforts, boosting the economy and the necessity to pass the infrastructure bill. He said that it was important that they could make progress and continue to make progress. He said that he thought that they’re “gonna be able to do that.”
