On the anniversary of the attack on Congress… Biden directs a barrage of accusations against his predecessor Trump

US President Joe Biden accused his predecessor, Donald Trump, on Thursday of trying to prevent the peaceful transfer of power on January 6, 2021, after he lost the presidential election.

“For the first time in our history, a president who lost an election has attempted to prevent a peaceful transition of power while a violent mob has violated the Capitol,” Biden said in a speech marking the first anniversary of the attack on Capitol Hill.

Biden Keel continued the accusations of his predecessor, saying that Trump did nothing for hours but watch television while the Capitol was under attack, and even spread lies about the 2020 election, which was the greatest evidence of democracy in the United States.

He considered that what happened during the storming of Congress did not happen during the Civil War in America, stressing that the intruders were not a group of tourists, “but they were a rabble.”

He described what happened as an “armed rebellion”, and that the perpetrators did not seek to confirm the will of the people, but to rob them of it, “not from seeking free and fair elections, but to overturn them.”

The US President pointed out that more than 140 police officers were injured as a result of the attack and were subjected to severe violent attacks, pointing to the testimony of a policeman that that day was like medieval battles.

Democracy is in danger

Biden stressed that the United States and the world are living a battle between democracy and tyranny, and said, “We are living a historical turning point, whether at home or abroad.”

“I will not allow anyone to stab democracy, I will stand against this breach and I will defend this nation,” he added.

Biden warned that democracy is under threat, but stressed that the United States cannot be a country that accepts political violence.
