President Biden discusses the tax code, MAGA Republicans, and China

On the season 55 premiere of 60 Minutes, correspondent Scott Pelley interviewed President Joe Biden to discuss the state of the country and its standing in the

world.  Pelley spoke with Mr. Biden, the seventh sitting United States president to be interviewed on 60 Minutes, at the White House and at the Detroit Auto Show. In

newly released exchanges from Thursday's interview, Mr. Biden told Pelley he believes the current tax code is unfair, discussed relations with China, and clarified parts of a

September 1, speech in which he was heavily critical of factions within the Republican Party. "Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens

the very foundations of our republic," Mr. Biden said earlier this month. "Now, I want to be very clear, very clear up front: Not every Republican, not even the majority of

Republicans, are MAGA Republicans. Not every Republican embraces their extreme ideology." Mr. Biden told Pelley he defines MAGA Republicans as those who "refuse to

acknowledge that an election took place and there was a winner." "MAGA Republicans are those people who, in fact, say that the use of violence is a legitimate tool, like

what happened to the Capitol," Mr. Biden told 60 Minutes. "They're the MAGA Republicans. You can't call yourself a democratic republic and support violence internally against the

government, and at the same time talk about not recognizing the outcome of election that's overwhelmingly agreed to be legitimate."TAXES President Biden told 60 Minutes he

does not currently plan on changing the federal income tax bracket for individuals.
