Biden: MAGA is ‘most extreme political organization’ in recent US history

Scott, the chairman of the Republican National Senate Committee, unveiled his Conservative campaign plan in February. But the courier document was quickly dismissed even by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and his fellow Republicans, who saw it as damaging to GOP candidates across the country.

Speaking at the White House, Biden described his personal economic philosophy as “in stark contrast to what the Republican Party is offering today – and if they hadn’t put this to press, you’d think I invent it”.
