Non American here, I thought the US was a constitutional republic, not a democracy.

Repulbics are types of democracies.

Direct democracy = the population vote on every issue

Republic = representative democracy = the population vote on representatives who in turn vote on issues

However, the purposeful use of "democracy" in this context seems to be a theme in leftist media, with the idea that it undermines the notion that the US is a specific type of democracy that is less beholden to mob rule (i.e. direct democracy). This idea is supported by pushes to lower voting age, extend voting rights to non-citizens and felons, etc.
