Joe Biden Warns Project 2025 ‘Will Destroy America’


President Joe Biden made a succinct warning on Wednesday about Project 2025, the right-wing blueprint for a second Donald Trump presidency pushed by dozens of conservative groups and members of Trump’s last administration.

“Project 2025 will destroy America. Look it up,” Biden said in a video posted to social media, linking to a page on his campaign website outlining the agenda.

Project 2025 is a 900-page collection of policy proposals put together by the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank. It outlines a plan to consolidate power in the executive branch, reclassifying thousands of public service roles as political appointees and paving the way for a government steeped in Christian nationalist values.

Items on the agenda include establishing a nationwide abortion ban, expanding gas and oil drilling, cutting back on food stamp access, ending free school meals, eliminating the Department of Education, cutting Medicaid funding, ramping up deportations and denying disaster relief funds to states that don’t abide by federal immigration laws.

Trump has distanced himself from Project 2025, saying he knows “nothing” about it or “who is behind it,” despite the project involving several former members of his administration, including Paul Dans, Roger Severino, Ken Cuccinelli, Christopher Miller and Russ Vought. All of them are possible contenders for jobs in Trump’s second administration if he wins in November.

“I disagree with some of the things they’re saying and some of the things they’re saying are absolutely ridiculous and abysmal,” Trump wrote on Truth Social last week in regard to Project 2025. “Anything they do, I wish them luck, but I have nothing to do with them.”
