President Joe Biden won the 2020 election, but Donald Trump did not give up his seat without a protest. He called the election rigged and phony enough times that it caused his supporters to storm the capitol on January 6th, 2020. One year removed from that fateful event, it still looms in the American consciousness.
Today is a day of remembrance for America, but things are far from settled down. On January 6th, 2021, the United States President Joe Biden addressed the former POTUS’ actions one year ago. He also wanted to make it known that Trump’s plan failed.
In his latest speech, President Biden condemned Donald Trump for inciting last year’s insurrection riot. He also vowed that it won’t happen again.
“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. But they failed. They failed. And on this day of remembrance, we must make sure that such an attack never, never happens again.”
Donald Trump decided against holding a press conference today. That won’t stop his supporters from crowing out “Let’s Go Brandon” whenever they can.
The American population is certainly divided about a lot of things right now, but Joe Biden wanted to make sure that the people knew another insurrection is not going to be in the cards.
