According to many observers, the outgoing US president is responsible for one of the “darkest days in American history”.
The future US President Joe Biden has blamed the outgoing incumbent Donald Trump for one of the “darkest days” in the history of the United States. Trump had “unleashed a total attack on the institutions of our democracy from the start,” said Biden in his hometown of Wilmington in the state of Delaware. The storming of the Capitol the previous day was “one of the darkest days in our nation’s history,” said Biden. Biden also described Trump supporters as “domestic terrorists”.
Biden also accused the authorities of treating Trump supporters demonstrating in Washington with far more indulgence than anti-racist protesters in recent months. “Nobody can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesters protesting yesterday, they would not have been treated very, very differently from the mob of hooligans who stormed the Capitol,” said the future President. “We all know this is true and it is unacceptable.”
The militant supporters of the outgoing US president had broken into the Capitol and MPs had to be brought to safety. They had overrun the security barriers in front of Congress, and the police and security forces could not stop them.
