Fox News commentator Juan Williams likes what he sees with the Democratic party “asserting itself” to coalesce around Joe Biden against Bernie Sanders.
Williams also said this is how anti-Trump Republicans should have handled him in 2016.
Williams also credited phone calls from Obama for uniting the party around Biden.
FoxNews report with former 2020 candidates throwing their support behind former vice president Joe Biden, the Democratic Party establishment is doing what anti-Trump Republicans should have done during the 2016 election, Fox News political analyst and co-host of “The Five” Juan Williams said Tuesday.
In an interview on “America’s Newsroom” with host Sandra Smith, Williams said the Democratic Party was “asserting itself” with former 2020 candidates Beto O’Rourke, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg endorsing Biden on the eve of Super Tuesday.
“The way I think of it is if 2016…if we were doing a re-run, you would see the Republican Party assert itself to say, ‘Let’s come together to stop Donald Trump,'” he explained. “They never did. The party, as a result, blew apart and it’s now the party of Trump.’
“On the Democratic side, I think you hear the phone calls coming from President Obama to a lot of these folks saying this is the time for the party to coalesce behind Joe Biden,” Williams added.
