Biden: ‘Today Is a Painful Reminder That Democracy Is Fragile’
Date: 2021-01-06 23:32:26
President-elect Joe Biden has called on President Donald Trump to step up and call for and end the violent protests on the U.S. Capitol.
Biden demanded Trump immediately make a televised address calling on his supporters to cease the violence that he described as an “unprecedented assault’ as pro-Trump protestors violently occupy U.S. Capitol.
Biden’s condemnation came after violent protesters breached the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday afternoon, forcing a delay in the constitutional process to affirm the president-elect’s victory in the November election.
Biden addressed the violent protests as authorities struggled to take control of a chaotic situation at the Capitol that led to the evacuation of lawmakers.
