U.S. President Joe Biden today (Thursday) blamed the US Congress for the anniversary of the attack on the Capitol building in Washington on Donald Trump and his supporters stabbing “Dagger in the throat of democracy”. On the American system of government.

Biden’s criticism was blatant of the former president, whom he accused of attacking that fundamentally changed Congress and the nation, raising global concerns about the future of American democracy.

“For the first time in our history, a president did not just lose an election, he tried to prevent the transfer of power peacefully when a lot of violence broke out in the Capitol,” Biden said. “You can not love your country only when you win. Proponents of the former president are trying to rewrite history. They want you to see Election Day the uprising and turmoil that took place here on Friday January as a true expression of the will of the people. Can we think of a more distorted way to see this country? “America? I can not.”

“We need to be absolutely clear what is true and what is false,” Biden continued, “The former president of the United States of America has spread a web of lies about the 2020 election. We are in a battle for America’s soul. “I will not shy away from that either. I will withstand this outbreak, I will protect this people. I will not let anyone stick a dagger in the throat of this democracy.”

Republican leaders and lawmakers have largely avoided the events of the day, dismissing them as too political – some continue to spread false claims about the election.
