On the first anniversary of the 6th JAN Capitol attack, Joe Biden, the United States President, cautioned the threats to democracy witnessed during that assault didn’t end when brutality halted. In a fiery speech on Jan. 6, President Biden condemned the ‘web of lies spread by his predecessor Donald Trump,’ blaming him unwaveringly for provoking the supporters who attempted to tilt the Presidential election in 2020.
In a speech from the United States Capitol, the US President said that ‘you cannot love your country only when you win.’ He said you couldn’t abide by the law only when it is convenient. Moreover, you cannot be nationalistic when you embrace and allow falsehoods.

That’s Mr. Biden during an address he delivered on Jan. 6 morning to remember the first anniversary of the Capitol insurrection. It isn’t only an unforgettable line – it is anticipated to be the one that gets repeated the most today and in the coming days – but also an enormously significant one if we anticipate to wholly coming to grips with what occurred last 6th January and everything that led to that event.
Moreover, Biden said the fabrications that drove the madness and anger they observed in that place, and they’ve not abated. So, therefore, they’ve to be strong, and unyielding in their defense of the right to vote and have that vote tallied.
At the core of the line is the idea of patriotism. Think of that Mr. Trump ran for US leader in 2016 explicitly on the impression of putting America first. The conception that animated both his drive and his 4-years in the White House was that America was extraordinary in the world and that, for too long, the U.S. leaders had been frightened to loudly and proudly announce that actuality, choosing instead to make the United States subservient to lesser countries worldwide.
In 2019 foreign policy address at the U.N., the former American leader Donald Trump said that the time ahead does not belong to globalists, and the future belongs to nationalists. What makes the U.S. so unique? Nothing distinguishes Americans from the other world powers – Russia, China – more than their pledge to the peaceful transfer of power after every 4-years.
Additionally, the conception that whether our preferred runner wins that we accept the outcomes of a presidential contest as free and fair; recognize the victor as the “President,” sits at the core of who we’re as American people.
