Trump and Biden

President Biden marked the first anniversary of the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection by forcefully calling out former President Trump for attempting to undo American democracy, saying such an insurrection must never happen again.

In a speech that lasted just under 30 minutes, Biden made a passionate case for defending the nation’s founding ideals from the threats posed by Trump and the violent mob that stormed the Capitol one year ago. Biden made reference to “the former president” 16 times in his speech, including lines accusing him of “losing,” “failing,” “losing,” and “lying.”
