In his campaign against “MAGA Republicans,” Biden accuses them of posing a threat to the country by contesting the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.
While the president asserts that he is concerned that election deniers may gain control of Congress after the midterm elections, his own close advisers have historically questioned election outcomes.

Peter Doocy: "You tweeted in 2016 that Trump stole the election."

The 2016 presidential elections, according to many Democrats, were rigged against them. Doocy thus questioned Jean-Pierre as to why Democrats were sobbing in 2016 given their conviction that elections in the US could not be rigged.
In response to this, Jean-Pierre said she doesn’t want to talk about old tales because the president is also concerned with uniting Americans in the present.
Doocy specifically questioned the press secretary about her criticism of the Georgia gubernatorial election in 2018 and the 2016 presidential election. In response, Jean-Pierre said it was absurd to compare her tweets to Trump’s claims of election fraud.
Doocy questioned why it was not problematic when Jean-Pierre herself tweeted about voter fraud in 2016 if condemning elections in 2020 is excessive and detrimental to democracy.

Jean-Pierre said that she was simply referring to the GOP-favored practice of voter suppression, which is used to manipulate elections.
Doocy eventually conceded that Trump had won the 2016 presidential election and that Georgia’s 2018 governor election had been won by Republican Brian Kemp when she continued to press Jean-Pierre with questions.
Biden, according to Jean-Pierre, is condemning MAGA Republicans because they all supported the Capitol Hill riots that took place on January 6 and were planned by the late president Trump.
Jean-Pierre continued, halting Doocy to probe more, “Biden will keep attacking the far-right ideology as people died on January 6.”
According to political analysts, this is the lowest point to which an in office president has ever sunk in his treatment of his own people. Conservative political observers assert that Democrats’ efforts to attack election skeptics are inconsistent.
