Last week, President Joe Biden stood in front of a blood-red background and delivered a speech in which he lashed out at supporters of former President Donald Trump.
His remarks were widely condemned, with one of the critics being a legal immigrant who is about to cast a vote for the first time.
Man values “the foundational principles that this country was founded on”
On Sunday, Alma Ohene-Opare said during an interview with “Fox & Friends Weekend” co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy that he “came to this country because I believed this was the place that my dreams to come true.”
“I believe that… with hard work, I could make anything happen for myself and my family, and over the last 20 years that I’ve been here, that’s exactly what I found,” Ohene-Opare continued.
“I found people who helped me in every way possible to be where I am today, and so when I think about making America great again, it’s a return to the foundational principles that this country was founded on,” he recalled.
Fox News noted that during his speech, Biden declared that “MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people. They refused to acknowledge a free election.”
“MAGA Republicans are not filled with hate towards anyone”
However, Ohene-O’Pare pushed back on the president’s assertions in a video, saying, “This November will be the first time I get to exercise my right to vote.”
“I understand the urge during an election season to attack those you see as political opponents, but, Mr. President, I am not your enemy, and the tens of millions of MAGA Republicans are not filled with hate towards anyone,” he said.
“The president chose a very specific moniker, MAGA, and he chose that MAGA, knowing very well that millions of people, millions of patriotic Americans embrace that term,” Ohene-Opare pointed out.
“And so by labeling these people MAGA Republicans and then listing how those people are a threat to our democracy or a threat to our republic… that gave me a little pause,” he finished.
