Trump responded by dismissing Biden’s remarks as fear-mongering. On the third anniversary of the January 6, 2021 attacks on the US Capitol by supporters of former US President Donald Trump, US President Joe Biden slammed Trump, saying that his potential 2024 election opponent seeks “revenge and retribution and that democracy would be in danger if he is re-elected.
He told the crowd to fight like hell. And all hell broke loose. Then, as usual, he delegated the dirty work to others. He went back to the White House, the US president said at a rally in Pennsylvania. In reference to the upcoming election, Biden stated that Trump’s re-election campaign is based on seeking “revenge and retribution” against his political opponents.
On January 6, these MAGA [Make America Great Again] voices who knew the truth about Trump abandoned the truth and democracy.” They made their decision. Now it’s up to the rest of us, Democrats, independents, and mainstream Republicans, to make our decision.”
He went on to say, “Donald Trump’s campaign is all about him. Not America, and certainly not you. The campaign of Donald Trump is obsessed with the past. Not in the distant future. He is prepared to give up our democracy in order to gain power. Meanwhile, Trump reacted angrily to Biden’s remarks, calling them pathetic and fear-mongering.
Biden warns Trump about sacrificing democracy

He did not, however, elaborate on the Capitol attack.
The Biden speech was preceded by an advertisement released by the Trump campaign, which labeled Biden as “the true destroyer of democracy and cited Special Counsel Jack Smith’s investigation into Trump’s activities, which accused Trump of plotting to unlawfully tamper with the 2020 election results.In an attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election, which Trump had lost to Joe Biden, a mob of Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol Building in Washington, DC, on January 6, 2021.
