Biden warns Republicans they will “get rid” of everything they have achieved if they are a majority

The president of the United States, Joe Biden, warned this Monday that the Republicans "they will undo all that has been achieved" during his government if they achieve a majority in Congress, and stressed that tomorrow’s elections are not a referendum on his management but the time to decide between "two visions" from the country. Later, Biden insisted that he is optimistic about the results of tomorrow’s midterm elections, and was confident of a victory in the Senate, but acknowledged that Democrats have a hard time holding on to a majority in the House of Representatives.

"Our lives will be marked by what happens next year", he said in his last participation in the campaign of these elections, in an act in Maryland, in which he also warned that if the Republicans intend to carry out a national ban on abortion, he will veto that law. Accompanied by his wife and by his party’s candidate for governor of Maryland, Wes Moore, Biden reviewed the achievements of his government and assured that, if the opposition party obtains a majority in the legislature, he will reverse the Democratic politics.

"Do you know what their top priority will be if they take control (of Congress)? They’re gonna throw away everything we’ve got", assured the president at the event held at Bowie State University. Biden also criticized Republicans’ stance on abortion at the event, specifically a proposal led by Sen. Lindsey Graham to ban abortions nationwide after 15 weeks’ gestation, and made a promise to voters.

"If Republicans gain control of Congress and pass a national abortion ban, I will veto it.", assured. Later, back at the White House, Biden insisted that he is "optimistic" on the electoral results and continues to think that the Democrats can win, contrary to what the polls say, although he admitted that it will be difficult to retain a majority in the House of Representatives.

"I think it will be tough but we can (win). I think we will win the Senate. The House of Representatives will be tougher" to achieve, he added. And to the question of what his new reality would be like if the Republicans take over the majority of the two houses of Congress, he replied: "More difficult". This Tuesday Americans go to the polls to renew a third of the Senate, all seats in the House of Representatives, the governments of 36 states and state legislatures. Democrats currently hold the majority in the House, with 220 seats, and the Senate is split down the middle, with 50 Republicans and 50 Democrats. The opposition party has an 85% chance of winning the Lower House and a 55% chance of obtaining a majority in the Upper House, according to the FiveThirtyEight portal, which aggregates the results of various polls.
