The Democratic National Committee (DNC) on Monday blamed Republicans for President Biden’s chaotic presidency.
Plagued by massive inflation, soaring crime and an invasion on the southern border, the DNC shifted the blame from the president to the GOP, accusing them of standing in the way of progress.
