GOP Rep McCaul Calls Out Biden’s Recent Speech As Overtly Divisive And An Insult To Millions Of Americans

Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) stepped forward to state that the recent “Soul of the Nation” speech issued this past Thursday by President Joe Biden was an outright “slap in the face” to Republicans all over the country.

While making an appearance on the Sunday episode of ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” McCaul called out Biden for trying to demonize tens of millions of American citizens that chose to vote for former President Donald Trump back in the 2020 election.

“If this was a speech to unify the American people it had just the opposite effect,” stated McCaul. “It basically condemned all Republicans who supported Donald Trump in the last election, that’s over 70 million people, and saying that Republicans are a ‘threat to democracy’ is really a slap in the face.”

McCaul stated that the speech was not hosted live by any of the known major broadcast networks due to its nature being overtly political.

“This was not a presidential address,” he stated. “It was a campaign speech before the midterm elections and that’s how I see it.”

Quite a few Republicans called out Biden’s remarks for their overly grim content and dark optics. As part of the speech, which was focused on the “Continued Battle for the Soul of the Nation,” Biden slammed Trump and his “MAGA Republicans,” making the claim that they “represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”

“There is no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven, intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans. And that is a threat to this country,” stated Biden.

McCaul made sure to speak out and heavily criticized the antagonistic rhetoric utilized by both sides of the aisle and claimed that Biden should have been making efforts to unify the country.

“I don’t think people in mainstream America particularly like the divisive rhetoric,” he stated.

McCaul claimed that Biden should have been taking far more steps to be more like Abraham Lincoln, who attempted to unify the country in the wake of fighting that came along with the civil war.

“I wish the president could have been more like Abraham Lincoln, who did not condemn the Democrats in the South in that time,” stated McCaul. “He actually brought them into the tent and I think that would be the mission I would advise for the president, I think he failed to do that in this speech that he gave.”
