WASHINGTON, 06 JAN – “January 6 was an armed insurrection and Donald Trump tried to overthrow free elections, subvert the Constitution and stop a peaceful transfer of power through a group of thugs, the whole world has seen with his own eyes . Not even during the civil war did this happen. In this sacred place democracy was attacked, a brutal attack, but the people resisted, democracy held ”. This was stated by US President Joe Biden speaking from Congress on the occasion of the commemoration of the assault on Capitol Hill on January 6 last year. A ceremony deserted by most Republicans. In fact, many senators joined the delegation led by leader Mitch McConnell to attend the funeral of a former colleague in Atlanta, Georgia. “We cannot afford” to become “a country that accepts political violence as a norm”, the president thundered in the meantime. “We are in a decisive moment in history in America and in the world, there is a challenge between democracy and autocracy, see China and Russia. They say democracy is too slow to solve today’s problems and they bet America will become like them. But we will never be, ”Biden concluded. (HANDLE).
