President Biden on Thursday, speaking on the one-year anniversary of the January 6 riots in the US Capitol Building, blamed the incident directly at Donald Trump’s feet and claimed that the former president was trying to prevent the peaceful transfer of power. and that he “sees his own interest as more important than that of the United States.”
“Our constitution faced the most serious threats. In the face of a brutal attack, the Capitol Police, DC Metropolitan Police, National Guard and brave law enforcement officials saved the rule of law,” Biden said. “For the first time in our history, a president had not just lost a “He was trying to prevent the peaceful transfer of power when a violent mob reached the Capitol. But they failed.”
Trump, who has never taken criticism lightly, reacted quickly to the president’s accusations, claiming that Biden used the opportunity to remove the public from his own mistakes as commander-in-chief, simply invoking Trump’s name to “Try to divide America further.”
“The bite that is destroying our nation with insane policies with open borders, corrupt elections, disastrous energy policies, unconstitutional mandates and devastating school closures, used my name today to try to further divide America.” said Trump in a statement. “This political theater is all a distraction from the fact that Biden has failed completely and totally. Our country no longer has borders, has totally and completely lost control of Covid (record numbers!), Is no longer energy dependent, inflation abounds, our “The military is in chaos, and our departure or surrender from Afghanistan was perhaps the most embarrassing day in the long and distinguished history of the United States – and so much more.”
Trump also took the opportunity to continue talking again about his as yet unproven allegations that widespread voter fraud cost him the 2020 presidential election.
“Why is it that the unelected committee of complete party-political hackers, whose verdict has long since fallen, is not discussing the fake presidential election in 2020? It is because they do not have the answers or the rationale for what happened,” Trump said. They got away with something and it leads to the destruction of our country. They want all conversations about the election “canceled.” Just look at the numbers, they speak for themselves. They are not justifiable, so the accomplices in the media just call it the big lie, when the big lie was in fact the election itself. “
Trump ended his statement by saying January 6 will go down as a milestone that highlights the shortcomings of the Democratic Party as opposed to his own.
“The Democrats want to own this day on January 6 so they can arouse fear and divide America, ”he said. “I say let them have it, because America sees through their lies and polarizations.”
