Over the 4th of July weekend in 2020, then-candidate for President, Joe Biden, vowed that if elected, he would “transform” America.

Voters probably should have paid more attention at the time. Biden was telling us exactly what he was going to do to this great nation. And *ahem* 81 million people or so voted him in any way.

In a tweet late on Sunday, July 5th of that year, Biden made what has since become more of a harrowing warning in retrospect than a campaign promise.

“We’re going to beat Donald Trump. And when we do, we won’t just rebuild this nation — we’ll transform it,” he wrote.

Biden Vows to Transform America

Who could have possibly known President Biden would attempt to ‘transform’ America the way he has? Only everybody who was actually paying attention.

This is a man who promised that “nobody’s going to build another coal-fired plant in America” and vowed to kill the Keystone XL pipeline.

His actions have transformed America from being an energy-independent nation into one having to beg Saudi Arabia and Venezuela for oil.

He’s also managed to transform billboards at the gas station from saying the cost of a regular gallon of gas is roughly $2.39 to signs indicating it costs over $5/gallon.

We Did It, Joe!

President Biden has also managed to transform America into an inflation-crippled nation with supply chain issues that keep shelves in grocery stores barren and leaves mothers struggling to find infant formula for their babies.

Apparently transforming America meant turning America into Venezuela.

Biden also managed to transform the paychecks of working Americans, causing real wages to plummet by 3.0% as of May. Thanks for turning our wallets into paperweights, Joe.

Fundamentally transforming America to Biden also meant more illegal immigration.

The President promised to end illegal immigration detention “across the board,” and to not deport illegal immigrants who have committed felony-like offenses in other countries.

The promise of open borders and the actions taken have led to a border crisis that has allowed millions of illegal immigrants to cross the southern border since Biden took office.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich warned at the time about Biden’s promise to ‘transform’ America.

“Exactly what does he have in mind?” Gingrich wondered. “His 4th of July speech indicates he thinks radical change is needed re-educating the rest of us into his newfound left-wing values – none of which he believed before.”

Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson seems to think the President has followed through on implementing those left-wing values and transforming America.

“You remember, they were going to fundamentally transform America,” he said in an interview with Fox Business. “Now we’re seeing what fundamental transformation looks like.”

“Open borders, 40-year high inflation, record gasoline prices, rising crime. They are fundamentally destroying this country,” added Johnson. “They need to be stopped.”

The senator noted that the midterm elections will mark the best opportunity to try and turn around this transformation.
