On the one-year anniversary of the breaching of the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, former President Donald Trump fired again at present President Joe Biden for feedback he made throughout a speech on Thursday.
Biden spoke candidly from Statuary Hall within the Capitol Building, casting blame on Trump for igniting “political violence.”
“For the first time in our history, a president had not just lost an election. He tried to prevent the peaceful transfer of power as a violent mob reached the Capitol,” Biden stated, through FOX. “But they failed.”
That didn’t sit effectively with 45.
“Biden… used my name today to try to further divide America,” Trump stated in an announcement, through U.S. News. “This political theater is all only a distraction for the very fact Biden has utterly and completely failed.
“Our Country no longer has Borders, has totally and completely lost control of Covid (record numbers!), is no longer Energy Independent, Inflation is rampant, our Military is in chaos, and our exit, or surrender, from Afghanistan was perhaps the most embarrassing day in the long and distinguished history of the United States—and so much more.”
Biden spoke intimately in regards to the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election, wherein Trump and Republicans have argued was “stolen.” Biden known as out Trump for not accepting the results of the election, calling it a “big lie.”
“He is not just a former president. He is a defeated president,” Biden stated. “You can’t love your nation solely if you win. You can’t obey the regulation solely when it’s handy. You can’t be patriotic if you embrace and allow lies.
“Those who stormed this Capitol and those who instigated and incited, and those who called on them to do so, held a dagger at the throat of America and American democracy.”
Trump, as an alternative, claimed that the “big lie” was the election itself.
“Why is it that the Unselect Committee of totally partisan political hacks, whose judgment has long ago been made, not discussing the rigged Presidential Election of 2020?” Trump stated. “It’s as a result of they don’t have the solutions or justifications for what occurred. They obtained away with one thing, and it’s resulting in our Country’s destruction.
“They want all conversation concerning the Election “Canceled.” Just have a look at the numbers, they communicate for themselves. They aren’t justifiable, so the complicit media simply calls it the Big Lie, when in fact the Big Lie was the Election itself.”
Trump completed his assertion by saying that opposite to what Biden and the Democrats imagine, it’s them who’re utilizing Jan. 6 to divide the nation.
“The Democrats want to own this day of January 6th so they can stoke fears and divide America,” Trump stated. “I say, let them have it because America sees through their lies and polarizations.”
