U.S Elections: Biden fears the worse with new ruling

Power corrupts, and unlimited power, corrupts absolutely, and for United States president, Joe Biden, he fears the Supreme Court are heading in this trajectory with their ruling on his rival, Donald Trump.

President Joe Biden expressed deep concern on Monday over a recent Supreme Court ruling that granted a form of presidential immunity, warning that it sets a “dangerous precedent” that could transform the office of the president into a position of unchecked power.

In a solemn address from the White House, Biden highlighted the potential implications of the court’s decision, which he believes could undermine the foundational principle that no one is above the law in the United States.

The ruling determined that former President Donald Trump cannot be prosecuted for actions that fall within his constitutional powers as president but can be held accountable for private acts. This landmark decision marks the first recognition of any form of presidential immunity from prosecution.

“This nation was founded on the principle that there are no kings in America. Each of us is equal before the law. No one, not even the president of the United States, is above the law,” Biden declared, emphasizing the historical importance of this principle.

The ruling has significant implications for the upcoming November 5 election, as it effectively means Trump is highly unlikely to face trial for his alleged role in attempting to overturn the results of the 2020 election before voters head to the polls. Biden cautioned that the court’s decision could lead to a scenario where the powers of the presidency are no longer constrained by legal limits.

“It’s a dangerous precedent, because the power of the office will no longer be constrained by the law,” Biden stated. “The only limits will be self-imposed by the president alone.”

Biden, who is 81, made these remarks following a contentious debate with Trump last week, which sparked calls from some quarters for Biden to step aside as the Democratic Party’s nominee. Despite this, Biden remained resolute in his message, urging the American people to “dissent” by rejecting Trump in the upcoming election.

The president’s concerns resonate with broader fears about the potential erosion of democratic norms and the concentration of power in the executive branch.
