President Joe Biden’s official Twitter account commented on the GOP debate Wednesday despite reports saying he was not paying attention to the event.
Biden re-posted a tweet from his campaign that had a clip of Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida criticizing former President Donald Trump for not attending Wednesday’s Republican presidential debate that aired on Fox Business Network. The Associated Press reported that Biden turned his attention to Trump at a series of fundraisers where he claimed Trump and his supporters were “determined to destroy American democracy.”
“Couldn’t agree more,” Biden said in the tweet.
