(DailyVantage.com) – The White House has reportedly responded to a CNN reporter’s question on how the Biden administration will respond to “war” rhetoric from the Trump 2024 campaign. White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre stated that the administration would “be prepared” to respond.
CNN Correspondent Jeremy Diamond asked the White House Press Secretary what the Biden administration’s plans were for addressing the so-called war rhetoric, or statements from right-leaning public officials that have been seen by the left-leaning public as “violent.” Diamond then reportedly quoted these statements to the Press Secretary.
Representative Andy Biggs (R.Arizona) has been quoted by media outlets as Tweeting that Republicans had reached a “war phase” and that current politics were now an “eye for an eye.” Diamond quoted a statement by Biggs, which was shared by former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon in posts to the social media platform Gettr.
Bannon has reportedly drawn criticism for making similar statements and stood trial for “failing to cooperate” with the committee looking into January 6, 2021. In 2022, Bannon was convicted of “two crimes” including contempt of Congress, for his political involvement in the events leading up to January 6. In June, Bannon was subpoenaed by Special Counsel Jack Smith’s continued probe into the January 6, 2021.
The “Stop the Steal” movement believed that the 2020 presidential election had been stolen from former President Donald Trump by the Biden campaign. Bannon reportedly donated funds to help support this movement and was quoted as stating that protests on January 6, 2021, would run the “Green Bay sweep” which was the plan to have right-wing Congress makers object to the election certification.
In addition to Bannon’s comments, the former Arizona gubernatorial candidate and former Fox News host Kari Lake stated that President Biden, Attorney General Merrick Garland, and other Justice Department officials would have to go through “millions” of American “gun owners” to get to the former President.
