Biden Accuses Trump of Masterminding January 6 Capitol Riot
Biden delivered one of the most forceful speeches of his decades-long political career. He went at Trump using a full arsenal of accusations. He accused Trump of inciting attendees to the Capitol march on January 6.
The president said that Trump used a web of lies about the 2020 elections in order to rile up supporters. Biden said that Trump did so because he couldn’t accept his recent defeat at the polls.
Speaking at the US capitol on the anniversary of the January 6 Capitol riot, Biden said that Trump “held a dagger at the throat of democracy” that day. “They didn’t come here out of patriotism or principle. They came here in rage,” Biden thundered.
‘What Is True and What is a Lie’
In his speech, Biden asked Americans to make the difference between truths and lies. “We must be absolutely clear about what is true and what is a lie.
A former president of the United States of America has created and spread a web of lies about the 2020 election.
He’s done so because he values power over principle,” he said. Biden hinted that Trump’s interest was “more important than his country’s interest”. As a result, Biden said that Trump “can’t accept he lost.”
Biden then proceeded to mock Trump and other Republican officials for their lack of proof on their claims of election fraud.
Not satisfied with his diatribe against Trump, he then issued another insult at Trump without mentioning his name. “He’s not just a former president. He’s a defeated former president.”
Democrats Push For Voting Rights Bill
Aside from Biden’s fiery rhetoric, Democrats are also using the January 6 Capitol riot anniversary to push for voting rights. Democratic party members like Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (NY) are urging the White House to emphasize voting rights.
Meanwhile, some Biden allies argued to keep the issues separate. They said that voting rights are about preventing the disenfranchisement of minority voters. Meanwhile, the January 6 Capitol riot is about an attempt to overturn an election.
Biden did minimize his mention of voting rights in his speech and contented himself with hurling accusations against Trump. However, Vice President Kamala Harris, in her introductory remarks, called on Congress to pass voting rights laws.
Why is Biden Not Mentioning Trump By Name?
Earlier in his tenure as President, Biden actively avoided criticizing Trump by name. It’s as if he’s afraid of uttering Donald J. Trump’s name for fear of making something happen.
When asked by reporters about his reluctance to name Trump, Biden gave a very confusing answer. He said that he “did not want to turn it into a contemporary political battle between me and the president”. He added that “It’s way beyond that.”

ANYONE who is still listening to this goddamned f’n mush head pos is an idiot PERIOD!! FUCKJOEBIDEN!!!
The Attorney General of Georgia finally pulled his head out of his ass and is now investigating voter fraud in his State. None of the voter fraud requests were granted. I believe that as time goes on more and more voter fraud will be proven and President Trump will once again be found to be right. No voter fraud was found because no one looked. Just like no wrong doing was not found surrounding the corrupt Biden, because the corrupt DOJ will not investigate.
tRUMPS ASS SHOULD BE LOCKED UP iDONT AGREE FULLY FOR BIDEN BUT i THINK Trump is fully responsable and if and he will probably run again I hope peaple dont put his sorry ass in office again
I think Donald Trump is responsible and should be held accountable for his actions as well as for his words. People with the same mentality as Trump will respond in like manner.
BIDEN WILL TELL YOU ANYTHING TO MAKE HIMSELF LOOK GOOD. BUT LIKE MY FATHER ALWAYS TOLD ME. DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING YOU HEAR. AND ONLY HALF OF WHAT YOU SEE. ALWAYS DIG OUT YOUR INFORMATION FROM AN UNBIAS SORCE. AND THEN READ BETWEEN THE LINES.

TRUMP DID NOT START THE JAN. 6 DEBOCLE. AND TRUMP DID NOT TRY TO TALK TO THEM AND STOP IT. BUT JUST BECAUSE HE DID NOT TRY. DOES NOT MEAN THAT HE COULD HAVE STOPPED IT . THOSE PEOPLE DID NOT WHAT TO STOP. TRUMP WOULD HAVE ULTIMINTLY HAD TO USE FORCE. THAT WAS SOMETHING HE WORRIED ABOUT. HE DID NOT WHAT ANYONE TO GET HURT. ITS SAD THAT SOME PEOPLE LOST THIER LIVES. BUT TRUMP WORRIED THAT IF HE DID USE FORCE . THAT A WHOLE LOT MORE POEPLE WOULD HAVE GOTTEN HURT OR DIED THEN DID.
