‘No conflict ‘ Joseph R. Biden throws down against ex-President Donlad Trump!
He says the Capitol cops did their job….
While their President did nothing but watch on TV after being held back from ‘leading’ the crowd…….
American President’s do NOT criticize ex-President’s…..
Republicans’s have fronted being ‘pro-cop’?
President Joe Biden castigated his predecessor Monday for failing to respond to theJanuary 6, 2021, insurrection, contrasting Donald Trump’s lack of action with the heroics of police officers responding to the Capitol riot.
“Every day we rely on law enforcement to save lives. Then, on January 6, we relied on law enforcement to save our democracy,” Biden said in remarks delivered virtually to a conference for Black law enforcement officials being held in Florida.
“We saw what happened: the Capitol Police, the DC Metropolitan Police, other law enforcement agencies were attacked and assaulted before our very eyes. Speared. Sprayed. Stomped on. Brutalized. Lives were lost,” Biden went on.
“And for three hours, the defeated former President of the United States watched it all happen as he sat in the comfort of the private dining room next to the Oval Office. While he was doing that, brave law enforcement officers were subject to the medieval hell for three hours, dripping in blood, surrounded by carnage,” Biden said.
Biden has condemned the January 6 attack but does not regularly make it part of his public comments. Officials have said he’s watched bits and pieces of the hearings put on by the congressional committee investigating the attack, and watched the beginning of last Thursday’s hearing focused on Trump’s actions that day.
Yet as the first stage of the hearings conclude, and as Biden looks to draw a stronger contrast with Republicans, his comments reflect a stronger condemnation of his predecessor for his actions that day.
Testimony heard last week by the committee showed Trump resisted calls from his allies and advisers to respond more forcefully to the Capitol riot. He spent the afternoon watching the riot play out on television.
Later, Trump resisted delivering remarks to call off the rioters before eventually doing so……
Defeated ex-President is at this moment giving a speech on crime and the need for law and order.
