US President Joe Biden accuses his predecessor Donald Trump of attempting to block the democratic transfer of power on January 6, 2021, after losing the presidential election.

“For the first time in our history, a president not just lost an election; he tried to prevent the peaceful transfer of power as a violent mob breached the Capitol,” Biden says in a speech marking the first anniversary of the attack on the US Congress.

“This wasn’t a group of tourists. This was an armed insurrection,” he says.
