Biden speaks out for democracy days ahead of Republican-dominated election – News

US President Joe Biden warned on Wednesday that the refusal of some Republican candidates to accept the midterm election results is a “path to chaos”. The Democrat’s speech came days before the important midterm election, which promises to be dominated by Republicans.

“There are candidates running at all levels of office in the United States who are not committed to accepting the results of the elections in which they participate,” Biden said.

“This is the path to chaos in the United States. It is unprecedented. It is illegal and un-American”, criticized the president. “As I said before, you cannot love your country only when you win,” he added.

The president pointed out that 2022 is an atypical year. “In a normal year, we are not often faced with the question of whether the vote we cast will preserve democracy or jeopardize it.”

The consensus among election watchers is that Democrats will be swept from power in the House of Representatives by a Republican red tide next Tuesday, while the party’s control in the Senate hangs by a thread.
