WASHINGTON— 

On Thursday (January 6), on the first anniversary of the Congressional riots, US President Biden delivered a speech at the scene of the riots a year ago, emphasizing that although American democracy was attacked at the time, it was not ended but was reborn. Biden also pointed out that both China and Russia believe that the days of American democracy are numbered, but he does not believe it because the United States firmly believes that the people are the masters, not that power is out of the barrel or the election results are violently overthrown.

On January 6, 2021, because former US President Trump claimed that the Democratic Party had cheated in the general election and refused to recognize the results of the election, thousands of Trump supporters stormed and infiltrated the US Capitol in Washington in an attempt to prevent the Congress from certifying worship. Den won the US presidential election. At least 5 people were killed and more than 130 were injured in this incident, and more than 720 people involved in the riots have been criminally charged.

In his speech, President Biden pointed out that the result of the 2020 U.S. election is the result of the most stringent review and review in U.S. history. Many states have recounted their votes. Georgia has recounted three times, including a manual vote. The legitimacy of the election results cannot be questioned.

He accused the former President Trump of not admitting defeat after losing the election, instead spreading falsehoods of election cheating, and incited his supporters to try to violently overthrow American public opinion and overthrow the American election results.

Biden said that Trump did this because he regarded power above principles and because he regarded his own personal interests more importantly than national interests.

Biden emphasized that America cannot live in lies, but must live in the light of truth.

Biden admitted that when mobs stormed the U.S. Congress on January 6 last year, American democracy was also under attack and the U.S. Constitution was also in danger. Fortunately, the riots did not end American democracy, but instead allowed American democracy to be reborn. Biden said that as president, he will defend democracy, defend the United States, and ensure the peaceful transfer of rights advocated by American democracy.

Biden also said that as president, he wants to unite the people of the whole country, rather than inciting division. He confessed that although the congressional riots are over, the anger of some people in the United States has not subsided. He called on the American people not to believe in lies, but to insist on the truth and live in the truth.

Biden also pointed out in his 35-minute speech that after the congressional riots in the United States, both China and Russia believed that the United States had a handful of democratic days, and that the United States should learn to be like them, not that they learn. Become like America. Biden emphasized that he would never believe this, because the United States’ philosophy of nation-building is incompatible with it.

Biden pointed out that the Congressional riots are a torture to the American soul. In American democracy, violence must not be accepted. Violent incidents similar to Congressional riots will never be allowed to happen again in the future.

Prior to President Biden’s speech, US Vice President Harris also delivered a speech on the first anniversary of the Congressional riots.

In the next one or two days, Washington will host a series of events to commemorate the first anniversary of the Congressional riots.
