President Biden’s State of the Union address included numerous partisan attacks on former President Trump.

Biden referenced Trump 13 times, starting with criticizing Trump’s comment about letting Putin do what he wants in Ukraine.

“If anybody in this room thinks Putin will stop at Ukraine, I assure you he will not,” Biden said. “Ukraine can stop Putin if we stand with Ukraine and provide the weapons to defend. That is that is all Ukraine is asking.”

“Now my predecessor, a former Republican president tells Putin, quote, ‘Do whatever the hell you want.’ That’s a quote. A former president actually said that — bowing down to a Russian leader. I think it’s outrageous. It’s dangerous and it’s unacceptable.”

He also accused Trump of trying to bury the truth about January 6th and being responsible for Roe being overturned.

“America stood strong and democracy prevail. We must be honest. The threat to democracy must be defended. My predecessor and some of you here seek to bury the truth about January 6,” Biden said. “I will not do that. This is a moment to speak the truth and bury the lies. Here’s the simple truth. You can’t love your country only when you win.”

“My predecessor came to office determined to see Roe v Wade overturn. He’s the reason it was overturned, and he brags about it. Look at the chaos that has resulted,” Biden said.

“Many of you in this chamber and my predecessor are promising to pass a national ban on reproductive freedom. My God, what freedom else would you take away?” Biden said.

Biden attacked Trump on healthcare, the pandemic response, buying American, immigration policy, and guns.

“The amount of the spikes in crime and the murder rate, raging virus that took more than one million American lives of loved ones, millions left behind a mental health crisis of isolation and loneliness. A president, my predecessor, failed the most basic presidential duty that he owes to American people: The duty to care,” Biden said. “I think that’s unforgivable.”

“Past administrations, including my predecessor, including some Democrats as well in the past, failed to buy American. Not anymore,” he said.

“Over 100 million of you can no longer be denied health insurance because of pre-existing conditions. But my predecessor and many in his chamber want to take for this great prescription drug away by repealing the Affordable Care Act,” Biden said.

He claimed Trump failed in his duties and pressured Congress against bipartisan bills.

“But unfortunately, politics is [sic] derail this bill so far. I’m told my predecessor called members of Congress in the Senate, demand they blocked the bill. He feels political [inaudible],” Biden said, struggling.

“My predecessor is watching instead of playing politics and pressuring members of Congress to block the bill,” Biden said.

“I will not demonize immigrants, say they are poisoning of the blood of our country. I will not separate families. I will not ban people because of their faith. Unlike my predecessor, on my first day in office, I introduced a comprehensive bill to fix our immigration system.”

“Because, unlike my predecessor, I know who we are as Americans,” Biden said.

On China, Biden said despite Trump’s tough talk, his predecessor never took actions like strengthening alliances or restricting technology trade that Biden has taken.

“And since I’ve come to office, our GTP is up, our trade deficit with China is down to the lowest point in over a decade. And we’re standing up against China’s unfair economic practices,” Biden said.

“I revitalized our partnership alliances in the Pacific, India, Australia, Japan, South Korea, Pacific islands,” Biden added. “I’ve made sure the most advanced American technology can’t be used in China, not allowing to trade them there. Frankly, for all his tough talk on China, it never occurred to my predecessor to do any of that.”

Many described Biden’s speech as one of the most partisan State of the Unions in history due to the repeated direct attacks on his predecessor throughout the address.
