US President elect Biden calls on Trump to prevail on mobs at Capitol to step back
US President elect Joe Biden has called on President Donald Trump to go on national television and call on his supporters at the Capitol to step back and allow the Democratic process to continue.
Biden said Trump should stand up and defend the constitution of the country for which he has sworn to protect.
In a television broadcast, Biden said Trump should step up and do what is right and just to defend the integrity of America.
He said what was happening at the Capitol does not represent America, “this is not who we are,” the president elect stated.
“I call on President Trump to go on national television to fulfill his oath and defend the Constitution and demand an end to this siege,” Biden said.
‘Like anything we’ve seen in modern times,’ Biden uttered.
‘This is not dissent, this is disorder,’ Biden said.
Biden remarked that he’s often said that the ‘words of a president matter.’
“You’ve heard me say this before, in a different context.”
“At their worst they can incite,” Biden said.
Trump released a video message after Biden had concluded, telling the mob to “go home now” as he fawned on them, “We love you, you’re very special.”
“We had an election that was stolen from us,” Trump also falsely continued to claim in the video.
