Former US president Donald Trump created a “web of lies” to pursue “power over principle,” President Joe Biden says in a speech marking the first anniversary of the January 6 attack on the Capitol.
“The former president of the United States of America has created and spread a web of lies about the 2020 election,” Biden said.
“He’s done so because he values power over principle, because he sees his own interest as more important than his country’s interest.”
The comments come a day after Trump urged his supporters to “rise up” against potential vaccine mandates in schools.
“Now, there’s talk by the Biden Administration again about closing schools and even vaccine mandates for school children. This is an outrage, and MAGA nation should rise up and oppose this egregious federal government overreach,” Trump said in a statement released via his Save America PAC.
