Biden attacks Republicans for the assault on the Capitol: “You can’t love the country only when you win”

The President of the United States, Joe Biden, attacked the Republicans this Thursday during the State of the Union address for the assault on the Capitol, which took place on January 6, 2021, when a mob of Donald Trump’s supporters broke into the building. the building to stop the session that confirmed the Democrat’s victory in the 2020 presidential elections.

“You cannot love the country only when you win,” declared the president, who took the opportunity to address American politicians and ask them to unite and defend democracy, recalling his “oath to defend against all foreign threats.” and national”.

In this sense, he has asked that they advocate for respect for free and fair elections, recovering trust in the institutions. “Make it clear that political violence has no place in the United States,” he declared from the box of the House of Representatives, in the Capitol building.

“My predecessor and some of you are trying to bury the truth of January 6. (…) Many of you were here on that dark day,” the president attacked, after maintaining that “the insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol put a dagger at the throat of American democracy.”

Biden has stated that the American population “saw with their own eyes that these insurrectionists were not patriots,” that they had simply come to stop the peaceful transfer of power and overturn the will of the people at the polls.

Thus, he has argued that this fact, together with the “lies about the elections” of 2020 and the “plots to steal” the elections “posed “the most serious threat” to American democracy since the Civil War. “But they failed. The United States remained strong and democracy prevailed. But we must be honest, the threat persists and democracy must be defended,” he concluded.

Biden and his predecessor, Donald Trump, are the two foreseeable candidates for the November presidential elections in the United States after sweeping the ‘Super Tuesday’ primaries, so the electoral confrontation between the two experienced in the 2020 elections will be repeated, in a country polarized after the surprising triumph of the American tycoon in 2016.

Since then, both candidacies have been marked by the advanced age of both and, above all, by the numerous judicial processes on Trump’s shoulders. In recent months, Biden’s management of the conflict in the Gaza Strip has brought him numerous internal criticisms.
