Joe biden It has not been slow to react to the events that are besieging the US Capitol. The president-elect has claimed responsibilities to Donald Trump, outgoing president, stating that "this is not a protest, it is an insurrection", and noting that "our democracy is under unprecedented attack."
"The world is watching this nation and many Americans have reached such a dark time," continues Biden. "The words of a president matter, no matter how good or bad that president is," he added in reference to Trump.
"I call on President Trump to go on television right now to fulfill the oath he took and comply with the Constitution," he continues to point directly to the Republican. "The scenes of chaos in the Capitol do not represent who we are, they are a small number of extremists. This is not disagreement, it is disorder and chaos. This is over now, "he concluded.
We recall that Trump previously harangued his supporters before they staged the assault on the Capitol, a building that houses the two chambers of the US Congress. Later, the Republican called for calm on his Twitter profile in a clear movement to throw the stone and hide his hand.
