<p>In October candidate Biden, talking about raising taxes on the wealthy at an ABC town hall, <a href=”″ rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>said</a>: “I have this strange notion. We are a democracy. Some of my Republican friends and some of my Democratic friends even occasionally say, ‘Well, if you can’t get the votes by executive order, you’re going to do something.’ Things you can’t do by executive order unless you’re a dictator. We’re a democracy. We need consensus.”</p><p>Republicans are now insisting that Biden signing executive orders – again, almost all of which merely reverse the damaging executive orders Trump implemented – makes him a “dictator.”</p><p>Far right wing Trumpist Charlie Kirk, for example, flat out lied on Tuesday, claiming: “Joe Biden admits he is governing like a ‘dictator.'”</p><p>CNN fact checker Daniel Dale agrees the right is making false arguments:</p><blockquote class=”twitter-tweet”>
This is not an accurate quote and not in context. Biden was asked in 2020 if he’d make a certain tax change via exec order. He said no, must be Congress, since there are “things you can’t do by executive order unless you’re a dictator.” “Things” is key. <a href=””></a><br/>
