Former congressional candidate Jason Kishineff believes that Donald Trump and Joe Biden are the same when it comes to their leadership in the White House.

"Trump and Biden are the same fascist, only with one people say 'gaffe' and call immigrant prisons 'facilities' and pretend it's okay to bomb anti-ISIS fighters in Syria," he tweeted on Friday.

Kishineff also pointed to Biden's past political work, which includes bolstering police unions and bankers.

Kishineff also underlined the support Biden received from billionaires in the 2020 election.

Many Have Argued Biden & Trump Are Similar

Despite being enemies in the 2020 presidential race, many have claimed that Biden and Trump are not too different.

In an op-ed for The Washington Post, editorial writer and columnist Charles Lane argued that the pair are not too different.

"It has been four months since Joe Biden replaced Donald Trump as president and Democrats took control of Congress," he wrote in his piece.

"The most underreported story of the transition is not how much things have changed, but how much they haven’t."

In an op-ed for Newsweek, Daniel R. Depetris contended that Biden's approach to foreign policy is more similar to Trump's than some might want to believe.

"With the notable exception of cutting off U.S. military support for the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen and extending the New START agreement with Russia, Biden's foreign policy is more similar to Trump's than what his supporters may wish to admit," he wrote.

According to DePetris, Biden and Trump's similarities on the matter of foreign policy outweigh their differences.

Biden Has Faced Criticism From Progressives

Although some progressives — including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — were pleasantly surprised by Biden's early days in the White House, the honeymoon appears to have come to an end.

As reported by Politico, left-wing lawmakers are not thrilled with Biden's most recent actions as president.

"In recent days, liberal lawmakers and grassroots progressive groups have shifted their anxiety and ire toward Biden, as voting legislation, police reform and other major priorities have run into a Republican blockade in the Senate," the outlet claimed.

Biden Is Accused Of Following In His Predecessors' Footsteps

According to Motley Fool, Biden is following in his predecessors' footsteps, and not in a good way.

The outlet noted that Biden's White House has yet to require its appointed trustees to oversee the Social Security Trust Fund issue in the annual Trustees report before the deadline, which was over three months ago.

"President Joe Biden's administration is getting off to the same start that former presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama did, and retirees can only hope things will get better in future years."
