Joe Biden Claims January 6th Speech Taunting Donald Trump Not a 'Contemporary Political Battle'


President Joe Biden said his speech Thursday memorializing the first anniversary of the January 6 protests of the 2020 presidential election should not be viewed as a political battle, even though he focused intently on condemning former President Donald Trump.

“I did not want to turn it into a contemporary political battle between me and the president,” Biden told reporters on Capitol Hill after the speech when asked why he did not directly name Trump.

Biden referred to Trump 16 times during his speech, repeatedly condemning him for fueling the January 6th protests on Capitol Hill and failing to act quickly enough to tell his supporters to go home.

The president repeatedly taunted Trump in his address for losing the 2020 election.
