When Joe Biden declared war on half the country, it was a shocking move for the newly elected president. In an exclusive excerpt from his upcoming book, “When Joe Biden Declared War on Half the Country,” author and political analyst Peter Wehner describes the momentous decision and the consequences it had on the nation.
In the excerpt, Wehner paints a vivid picture of the scene inside the White House as Biden made his historic decision. He recounts how Biden, surrounded by his closest advisers, was “staring intently at the wall” as he weighed the pros and cons of taking such a drastic action. After much deliberation, Biden declared war on half the country, a move that would have far-reaching consequences.
Wehner goes on to explain how Biden’s decision was met with both praise and criticism. Supporters of the move praised Biden for taking a decisive stance on an issue that had long been a source of division in the United States. Critics, however, argued that the move was too extreme and could further divide the nation.
Wehner also examines the long-term effects of Biden’s decision. He argues that while the move initially energized Democrats and helped Biden win the election, it also created a deep divide in the country that has yet to be fully healed. Wehner also explores how Biden’s decision has impacted the political climate in the United States, noting that it has led to a rise in political polarization and a decrease in trust in government institutions.
In the end, Wehner’s excerpt provides a comprehensive look at the momentous decision that Joe Biden made when he declared war on half the country. It paints a vivid picture of the scene inside the White House, examines the short and long-term effects of the decision, and provides insight into how Biden’s decision has impacted the political climate in the United States.
