President Biden has blamed Trump for January 6 violence.
The President had forcefully condemned former President Donald Trump on Thursday for promoting a “big lie” that the 2020 United States election was stolen and inciting an angry mob of his supporters to attack Congress on January 6, 2021.
In a blistering speech delivered in Statuary Hall, Biden described Trump as a “defeated president” who today still threatens American democracy.
We must be absolutely clear about what is true and what is a lie,” Biden said.
“Here’s the truth. The former president of the United States of America has spread a web of lies about the 2020 election.”
“For the first time in our history, a president not just lost an election, he tried to prevent the peaceful transfer of power as a violent mob breached the Capitol,” Biden said
