Trump VP hopeful's Biden 'dictatorship' remark met with skepticism even from his own party [View all]

Former President Donald Trump has faced a steady stream of claims that he would take America toward a dictatorship. But according to Gov. Doug Burgum (R-ND), we're already in one — President Joe Biden's dictatorship.

"Under Joe Biden, we're actually living under a dictatorship today, where he's, you know, bypassing Congress on immigration policy, he's bypassing Congress on protecting our border, he's bypassing Congress on student loan forgiveness and he's defying the Supreme Court, I mean, those are things that authoritarians and dictators do, they don't follow democratic processes and they just assert their liberal view, and that's what the Biden administration is doing," Burgum said Wednesday on Fox News.

Contrary to Burgum's claim, Biden is not "defying the Supreme Court" on student loans, rather forgiving loans under existing programs passed by Congress, as the Supreme Court said he would have to do when it struck down his initial forgiveness plan that relied on the HEROES Act.


Go live in Russia...............Burgum, Sununu you two don't know how good you have it..............
