DEM DIVIDE Ex-Speaker John Boehner warns ‘Biden is being pushed hard by progressives’ and ‘divide will get bigger’ on Morning Joe
FORMER Speaker John Boehner has warned that President Joe Biden is being "pushed hard by progressives".
Speaking on MSNBC's Morning Joe, the retired politician said the existing divide among the Democrats will "widen considerably" in the coming months.
"You've got a traditional Democrat like Joe Biden being pushed to no end by the progressives in his own party," Boehner said.
"I think the skirmish in their party is going to widen considerably as they try to move this infrastructure bill through Congress."
It comes after Donald Trump suggested Boehner was drunk when he accused the ex-president of inciting the Capitol riot for "selfish political reasons".
Boehner made the comments in his book to be published next month, saying it was "painful" to watch the violent events at the Capitol on January 6.
Boehner served as the 53rd House Speaker of the US House of Representatives from 2011 to 2015.
During his time in Congress, he was a member of the Republican Party.
He served as the House Minority Leader from 2007 until 2011, and House Majority Leader from 2006 to 2007.
Boehner resigned from the House of Representatives in October 2015 due to opposition from within the Republican caucus.
