(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) During an appearance Sunday on CBS’s Face the Nation, New Hampshire’s Republican Gov. Chris Sununu argued that the Left was using President Joe Biden as a tool by which they can attack and undermine the citizenship of half of Americans
The centrist governor—an occasional critic of former President Donald Trump—was responding to Democrats who claimed that so-called right-wing extremism is a threat to democracy, the Daily Wire reported.
“Look, what is shocking to me about all of this is you have the Democrat Party, which is now using the president of the United States, not as leader of our country, but leader of their party as a political tool,” he said.
He also noted that left-wing extremism has been far more prominent in recent years.
“Right before the election, to drive in, effectively tell half of America that they’re too extreme for America—it makes absolutely no sense,” Sununu said.
“… [T]o say that extremism belongs in one party and it doesn’t appear in the Democrat Party is nonsensical,” he added. “Nobody buys that because we see it on both sides.”
Sununu concluded by pointing out that Biden was presented to Americans in 2020 as someone who would unify the country rather than continue to polarize it. He has decidedly not attempted to live up to that promise.
“For the president [of the] United States to come up and be more of a political tool as opposed to a uniter—remember, he got elected because he said he was going to unite folks, not threaten them,” the governor said.
“He was going to bring everybody together and get stuff done and not polarize this country, which is exactly what has happened,” he added. “… The president has to take a lot of responsibility for that. It’s easy to just blame extremism. But most of us are not extreme.”
