Washington: US President Joe Biden has said that Americans must ensure such an attack like that on the US Capitol a year ago “never happens again” as the country seems more divided than ever.
“I believe the power of the presidency and the purpose is to unite this nation, not divide it. To lift us up, not tear us apart,” Biden said, accusing former President Donald Trump of spreading a “web of lies” about the 2020 election.
Trump claimed that Biden “used my name today to try to further divide America,” although Biden did not mention Trump by name during his speech.
The Democrats want to own this day of January 6 so they can stoke fears and divide America. I say, let them have it because America sees through lies and polarizations,” Trump said.
