Former President donald trump attempted to turn the tables on his potential november opponent, President Joe Biden, on Saturday, claiming that the man whose election triumph trump sought to overturn is "the destroyer of American democracy." Trump's claims against Biden, a Democrat, mimic those made by Biden against his predecessor for years. 

As trump has dominated the Republican presidential primaries and spoken about punishing his opponents and the press media if re-elected, Biden has increased his own warnings, claiming trump is "determined to destroy American democracy." On Saturday, trump made his most clear case yet for why Americans should perceive his opponent as the greater democratic threat. trump reiterated his long-held claim that the four felony indictments against Biden demonstrate that he is abusing the federal justice system against his adversary.

"He's been weaponizing government against his political opponents like a Third World political tyrant," trump told an audience in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, on Tuesday. "Biden and his radical left allies like to pose as standing up as allies of democracy," trump said. He went on to say: "Joe Biden is not the defender of American democracy, Joe Biden is the destroyer of American democracy."

"Donald Trump's America in 2025 is one where the government is his personal weapon to lock up his political enemies," said Ammar Moussa, a Biden campaign spokeswoman. You don't have to take our word for it; trump himself has confessed it."

Trump has repeatedly threatened to prosecute Biden if he returns to the White House. However, on Saturday, the former president expanded his arguments about Biden's threat to democracy to lawsuits filed by two liberal organisations seeking to rule him ineligible for office under a rarely used Civil War-era constitutional provision that prohibits those who "engaged in insurrection" from returning to office.
