President Joe Biden spoke out against his predecessor, former President Donald Trump, during a fundraiser event in San Francisco on Tuesday. Biden condemned Trump's use of language that echoes Nazi rhetoric from the 1930s.
Biden specifically referenced Trump's recent remarks in New Hampshire where he vowed to "root out the communists, Marxists, fascists, and the radical left thugs that live like vermin within the confines of our country."
The president expressed concern over this choice of language, stating it was reminiscent of the same phrases used in Nazi Germany. He also noted that this was not the first time Trump had used such language, referring to his remarks about immigrants "poisoning the blood" of America.
"It's despicable and racist for Biden to make that disgusting connection," responded Trump campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung in a statement. "The fact is that there has been no bigger ally to Israel and the Jewish people than President Trump."
Cheung also accused Biden of suffering from "Trump derangement syndrome" and called for him to seek professional help.

But Biden's criticism did not stop there. He also called out Trump for his recent post on his new social media platform, Truth Social, where he pledged to "root out [those groups] in honor of our great veterans on Veterans Day."
Biden labeled this language as "dangerous" and condemned Trump's actions as divisive and potentially harmful to the country.
Among the attendees at the fundraiser were prominent figures such as California Gov. Gavin Newsom, San Francisco Mayor London Breed, and Hollywood powerhouse Jeffrey Katzenberg. They were all in agreement with Biden's statements and expressed their support for his stance against Trump's rhetoric.
The president's words come at a time when political tensions are high in the United States. Trump's continued claims of a fraudulent presidential election and his vow to take action against those who oppose him have caused concern among many, including Biden.
You want to know what actual “vermin” is? It’s what crawls around San Francisco daily, until Gavin Newsom chose to finally clean it up on a dime in honor of Xi Jinping.

Biden also took the opportunity to highlight his administration's efforts in promoting peace and rebuilding relationships with allies, especially Israel. He noted that while Trump's leadership made the country and the world less safe, his administration was working towards a brighter and more united future.
The fundraiser event brought in a significant amount of donations in support of the Democratic party and Biden's agenda. As the leading candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, Trump's actions and words continue to be scrutinized and debated by both parties.
As the political landscape remains divided, it is clear that Biden will continue to stand up against language and actions that he believes are detrimental to the safety and unity of the American people.
