WASHINGTON, Sept 1 (Reuters) – The White House on Thursday dismissed criticism from Republicans that President Joe Biden is dividing Americans by attacking ardent supporters of former President Donald Trump, saying the party’s far-right is trying to dodging responsibility.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre spoke after Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel said: “Joe Biden is the chief divider and embodies the current state of the Party. democrat: that of division, disgust and hostility towards half the country. “

The rhetorical crossfire came as Biden, who last week called some Republicans backing “semi-fascism,” planned to address threats to democracy in a primetime speech in Philadelphia.

During his daily briefing, Jean-Pierre spoke of the “ultra MAGA Republicans”, those who support Trump, whose flagship slogan was Make America Great Again.

“We understand that we are hitting a nerve, we understand that. We understand that they are trying to hide. And we understand that ultra MAGA job holders want to play games here and dodge responsibility,” she said.

She said these Republicans were pushing “radical” ideas like a nationwide ban on abortion and forcing all Americans to pay some form of tax.
