Biden to attend Trump rally in Florida
President Biden will speak at a rally in Palm Beach County on Wednesday to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Roe v.
Wade decision legalizing abortion, the White House announced Friday.
Biden is scheduled to attend the rally with Vice President Mike Pence, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest and other top White House officials.
“President Biden will be honored to share his vision for a brighter future with his fellow Floridians, and I look forward to welcoming him to Palm Beach to join in the celebration of the 50-year anniversary of Roe v Wade,” Earnest said in a statement.
Buchanan will make a brief appearance at the rally in Miami Gardens, where he will address the crowd.
Bidens wife, former Vice President and current Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, will also make an appearance.
The vice president will be joined by the couple’s daughters, Chelsea and Jill.
The rally will be hosted by the Palm Beach Chapter of the NAACP.
The rally was also co-sponsored by the NAACP chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and the National Hispanic Leadership Agenda, according to the White Houses website.
The event will be held in the Coral Gables neighborhood of the city, where a rally against the Supreme Court ruling was held last week.
The Supreme Court on Monday ruled that a portion of the federal Partial Birth Abortion Ban, which bans abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, violates the constitutional rights of women seeking to terminate pregnancies.
Bates, the state’s Republican governor at the time, has not ruled out repealing the ban.
Bidders have criticized Biden and the Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton for their opposition to the ban, and for not endorsing the candidate when she faced questions about her views on abortion in recent weeks.
The vice president has said in recent months that he is against abortion, but has made exceptions for the life of the mother.
The Associated Press reported that Biden told reporters in August that he would “absolutely” support a woman seeking an abortion after 20 to 24 weeks of gestation.
