  • Trump was furious about Biden and the 2020 elections in a long statement about the Capitol riot anniversary.

  • He claimed in a previous speech that Biden “used my name” and “tried to further divide America.”

  • However, Biden never mentioned Trump’s name in his speech, instead calling him “the defeated former president.”

Former President Donald Trump issued a rambling statement on Thursday condemning President Joe Biden’s 25-minute speech to commemorate the first anniversary of the deadly parliamentary riots.

“Biden, who is destroying our country with crazy policies of open borders, corrupt elections, catastrophic energy policies, unconstitutional obligations, and catastrophic school closures, uses my name today to call America. I tried to divide it further, “the statement began.

However, Biden never mentioned Trump’s name in his speech, instead calling his predecessor a “defeated former president” and accusing him of the violence that took place in the Capitol on January 6, 2021. ..

Biden went on to say that Trump “cannot accept his loss” in the election “because his injured ego is more important to him than our democracy and constitution.”

“Nevertheless, 93 US Senators, his own Attorney General, his own Vice President, Governor, and state officials in all fierce battle states all said he lost,” Biden said. “That’s what your 81 million people did when you voted for a new way to move forward.”

Then asked why he didn’t say Trump’s name in his speech, Biden replied, “I think it’s with me. [former] President. “

Trump in his statement attacked the House Election Commission investigating the Biden administration’s immigration policy, foreign policy, COVID-19 plan, and parliamentary turmoil.

He also continued to lie about the outcome of the 2020 general election, falsely claiming that it was “injustice” and “leading to the destruction of our country.”

“Just looking at the numbers, they’re talking about themselves,” Trump said, but it wasn’t clear which number he was pointing to.He repeatedly he he Received more votes than any other incumbent in US history in the 2020 elections -just a little 74 million —But Biden beat him with nearly 7 million votes, securing both popularity polls and electoral colleges.

Despite widespread fraud and election fraud claims by Trump and his allies, bipartisan and nonpartisan elections and cybersecurity experts have had a large number of mail votes during the pandemic. , Confirmed that the 2020 elections are actually the safest and safest in US history.

Biden’s victory was also evidenced by all 50 states and electoral colleges, and nearly all proceedings between the Trump campaign and Republicans in fierce battle states led to defeat or dismissal. Still, the former president claims that the election was unfairly stolen from him, and Biden claims to be an illegitimate president.

Trump has also repeatedly suggested launching a 2024 presidential campaign, causing controversy over whether he is serious about running again.

But Michael Cohen, a former Trump lawyer and fixer, thinks it’s all vibrant.

“His insatiable need for attention is one of the reasons he continues to show off this dishonest 2024 run,” Cohen said. I told insiders in an interview last year.. “The other is that I’m making more money than ever.”

But in the end, “he will never run again because of bipartisan hatred, because of the Democratic Party, or because he doesn’t want to go through his family anymore,” Cohen said. “I can’t get angry with the idea that he’s a two-time loser, but he keeps drifting until the last second.”
