An invitation to Joe Biden

Washington, DC – Recently, Joe Biden stood before a crowd in Pennsylvania and delivered one of the most controversial speeches I have ever heard from a US President.

Joe Biden ran a supposedly unity-based presidential campaign. This speech was anything but unifying. Instead of offering solutions to the many crises his administration has created, Biden has chosen to attack and further divide his fellow Americans.

• He blamed his predecessor and pointed the finger at the 74 million Americans who exercised their right to vote for the presidential candidate of their choice.

• He politicized our military, himself displaying two US Marines in the background as he spoke his scathing and purely political words.

Joe Biden has said it’s the “MAGA Republicans” who are the biggest threat to our democracy. This claim comes from the leader of the party that is pushing our country ever closer to socialism, hoping to erode the foundations on which our nation was built. Socialism is the real threat to our democracy and our constitutional freedoms. It makes me sick.

Our economy was booming under President Trump. Our army was strong; our opponents knew not to play with us. We were energy independent, able to provide affordable and reliable energy. Our border was secure.

There’s nothing wrong with wanting to make America more beautiful. For all Americans – not just for one party.

I invite Joe Biden to visit Oklahoma that loves Trump. In the Sooner State, we put America first. Our farmers and herders feed and clothe our communities. Our national producers supply our homes. Thousands of small businesses exemplify the American Dream.

Additionally, our state is home to more than 300,000 veterans who have put their lives on the line for the beliefs we hold so dear, understanding what it is to be a patriot-loving American.

Joe Biden owes all red states and Trump supporters an apology. I’ll wait.
