President Joe Biden, former Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump were all in Pennsylvania on Saturday (November 5) to stump for their party’s respective candidates while sharing a warning about what would happen with the opposing party at the helm.

Biden and Obama were on the same stage to stump for Senate nominee John Fetterman and gubernatorial nominee Josh Shapiro.

Trump was in the state to stump for Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz and gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano.

During his remarks, Biden told voters that Tuesday’s midterms are a “defining moment” for the U.S., telling them to “speak with one voice” irrespective of party affiliation.

Biden also condemned the attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA.) husband, Paul Pelosi, saying there was “no place in America for political violence.”

Biden attacked Republicans for wanting to restrict abortion access, saying the “right to choose is on the ballot.”

Biden also warned that the right to vote, Social Security, and medicare was on the ballot.

Obama seconded Biden’s remarks, adding that “democracy is really on the ballot.”
Obama acknowledged Democrats weren’t perfect but took issue with Republicans, saying the latter wasn’t pretending the rules or the facts apply to them.

The former Democratic President empathized with voters’ concern with 40-year high inflation but argued that when Democracy disintegrates, “people get hurt.”

Trump told attendees at his campaign rally that voting for “radical left Democrats” meant supporting the “decline and fall of America,” and supporting Republicans meant saving the American dream and stopping the “destruction of our country.”
