Biden warns of a ‘nightmare’ future for the country if Trump wins again, listing reasons (Part-1)

Las Vegas— President Joe Biden urged Nevada Democrats to vote for him in the state's presidential primary this week and for his party in November, listing a number of reasons a second Trump administration would be a “nightmare” for the nation.

At a fundraiser, Biden criticized Trump's characterization of Jan. 6 rioters as “hostages,” his suggestion that a former top military officer should be executed, his call of fallen soldiers as “suckers” and “losers,” his desire to be a Day One “dictator,” his promise to supporters that “I am your retribution,” and more.

He then addressed several hundred people at a community center in a predominately Black Las Vegas neighborhood, saying, “you’re the reason we’ll make Donald Trump a loser again.” When Biden challenged Trump in 2020, “what made America America, I thought, was at risk”; a likely rematch raises the stakes.

He promised donors at the Henderson, Nevada, home that if they came to Washington, he would show them the White House dining room table, where ex-aides said he sat transfixed for hours watching the TV as the rioters he incited stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

He stated, “We must keep the White House,” “We must keep the Senate” and get the House back. At his next event, he bluntly praised his record, asking people to “imagine the nightmare of Donald Trump.”

Trump campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung said Biden “has been a nightmare for this country in just three short years in the White House, and no amount of gaslighting will make Americans forget about all the misery and destruction he has brought.”

Only author Marianne Williamson and a few unknown candidates oppose Biden in Tuesday's Nevada Democratic presidential primary. He won Nevada by less than 3% in November 2020. He also visited to Nevada to rally people for the fall campaign.

The state famed for casinos and hospitality is infamous for split-ticket, unpredictable results. It has substantial Latino, Filipino, Chinese American, and Black communities and many of transitory workers. Nevada's political influence is concentrated in its two most populous counties, which contain Las Vegas and Reno. More than 88% of active registered voters live there.
