Donald Trump tore into Joe Biden’s obsessive mask-wearing, imbalance and support for abortion while speaking at a GOP star-studded pro-life summit.
The former president headlined Susan B. Anthony List’s Pro-Life Leaders Summit in Palm Beach, Florida Monday night.
The event was closed to the press, but Trump’s comments were summarized on Twitter wire by journalist Mollie Hemingway, a senior editor at The Federalist and Fox News contributor.
Trump spent much of his time onstage reiterating some of his favorite insults to Biden, whom Hemingway said he called “ one of the most extreme and radical presidents we’ve had. ”
In keeping with the evening’s theme, Trump condemned Biden’s actions in support of abortion, noting that the Democrat – who is a Catholic – had kept quiet about his specific policy plans on the subject during his campaign.
He also condemned the “ blatant ” media for treating Biden with a light touch, even when he came up the stairs of Air Force One three times in March.

Trump extended his attack to Democrats as a whole when he criticized their mask habits and argued that wearing face coverings after vaccination hurts vaccine acceptance rates.
He mocked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for wearing a large mask a few days ago, saying he had “never seen anything so grand,” Hemingway reported.
Trump also joked about Biden wearing a mask on a Zoom call with world leaders, saying, ‘You couldn’t hear a word he said!’
Toward the end of his comments, Trump argued that the election handling was a “ big lie ” – echoing a statement he released earlier today.
The SBA list – whose mission is to “ end abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives ” – is known for having the best presidential candidates at the summits – and this year was no different.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was also scheduled to speak with Senator Rick Scott Monday night, according to a schedule shared with Fox News.
The outlet obtained an excerpt from DeSantis’ comments, in which he focused on his track record of appointing Supreme Court judges of the state who “ respect the rule of law and religious freedom, and by signing legislation … empowering families … and sends out a clear message that we will do everything we can to protect the unborn ‘.
“Building a culture of life requires us to be in favor of policies that fight for our most vulnerable,” the excerpt read. “Today is about applauding the tireless work of lawyers such as the Susan B. Anthony List team who vigorously defend life.”
The summit continues on Tuesday for a second night, with speeches from Sens Tim Scott from South Carolina, Ted Cruz from Texas and Marco Rubio from Florida.
Former Vice President Mike Pence – another possible candidate for 2024 – was also set to speak Tuesday night.
