Senate Republican Conference Chairman John Barrasso (R-WY) turned President Joe Biden’s defense of his disastrous debate performance against former President Donald Trump against him this week.

Following Biden’s debate against Trump two weeks ago — which has sparked calls by members of his own party to drop out of the race — Biden claimed: “I had a bad debate, but 90 minutes on stage does not erase what I’ve done for three and a half years.”

Barrasso responded to Biden’s remarks during a press conference on Wednesday, telling reporters: “Well, he’s right. Nothing can erase the damage that the Democrats have done to the American people over the last three and a half years. They’re the party of open borders and they’re the party of high prices.”

“With regards to prices, they have saddled the American people with record inflation,” he said. “It has been painful. It’s been punishing. Prices are up cumulatively 20% since they took over in January of 2021. In terms of immigration, they have invited and they have incentivized 10 million illegal immigrants to come to this country. They’ve paved the way for criminal cartels, for drug dealers, for people on the terrorist watch list to come here to rob and to rape and to murder Americans.”

“That is their record. And that’s why in record numbers, Americans are saying the country is headed in the wrong direction,” he continued. “And Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and every one of the Democrats, those that are gonna be up here speaking soon, they are all responsible for the damage that has been done. The American people want strong leadership. We’re not gonna get it from the Democrats. We cannot trust the Democrats to keep us safe or make us more prosperous. It is their policies that have caused the pain.”

He said that in order to turn the country around, Democrats needed to vote with Republicans to stop reckless spending, secure the border, and unleash American energy production.
