President Biden Speaks On "Protecting The Sacred, Constitutional Right To Vote"

|

President Biden made the "moral case" for preserving voting rights in a major speech in Philadelphia on Tuesday afternoon.

"In the birthplace of American Democracy, President Biden will articulate how to meet the greatest threat to the right to vote and the integrity of our elections since the Civil War, renew his call for vital legislation -- to overcome the rash of anti-voter laws motivated by the Big Lie, and underline the all-of-government effort the Biden-Harris Administration launched to use the powers of the executive branch to protect and advance the sacred, constitutional right to vote," a White House spokesman told CNN.

"The 21st Century Jim Crow assault is real. It's unrelenting. We're going to challenge it vigorously," the president said.


"The Big Lie is just that: a big lie," Biden said. "The 21st century Jim Crow assault is real, it’s unrelenting. We are going to challenge it vigorously."

"Make no mistake, bullies and merchants of fear and peddlers of lies are threatening the very foundation of our country."
