Biden Calls On Trump Supporters To 'pull Back,' Urges Decency by Omooba77: 11:01pm On Jan 06
President-elect Joe Biden called Wednesday for the restoration of “just simple decency” as a mob incited by his predecessor stormed the U.S. Capitol and delayed Congress from certifying the results of November's election in which Biden won the White House.

Biden had planned to deliver a speech focused on how to revive an economy and provide financial relief for small business owners reeling from the coronavirus pandemic from his native Delaware.

But shortly before he was to begin speaking, demonstrators broke into the capital, reaching as far as the House floor. The building was locked down and police with guns drawn moved in as Vice President Mike Pence and lawmakers were evacuated to secure locations. National Guard troops were deployed and a citywide curfew called for shortly after dusk, as rioters continued to occupy the capital for hours.

“At this hour our democracy is under unprecedented assault unlike anything we've seen in modern times,” Biden said, adding that what unfolded was, “an assault on the rule of law like few times we have ever seen it.”

He said the uprising bordered on sedition, adding, "The scenes of chaos at the capitol do not reflect a true America, do not represent who we are.”

“I call on this mob to pull back and allow democracy to go forward,” Biden said. “At their best the words of a president can inspire, at their worst they can incite.”

Biden also called on Trump to “go on national television now” to “demand an end to this siege."

A joint session of Congress had convened to certified Biden’s election victory. But as that was occurring, Trump addressed thousands of demonstrators who had amassed outside the Capitol to cheer his baseless claims of voter fraud and to protest the results of a free and fair election simply because the candidate they support lost it.

Trump's supporters moved on to besiege the Capitol — leading to unsettling scenes of chaos and violence unseen in Washington for decades.

Biden's speech was delayed by more than an hour as the president-elect and aides tore up his scheduled remarks and worked to craft a new statement addressing the scene in the nation's capital. There didn't appear to be additional security around Biden, but, as the president-elect huddled backstage, agents on his U.S. Secret Service detail stood in their places in front of a stage at a theater in downtown Wilmington, with featured four American flags, for more than hour.

Violence unseen in Washington for decades.

Third World War looming small small.

This is a small sign that security, law and order isn't as sound in America, as the world thinks.

One candidate calls for peace, and the other continues to peddle the unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud that caused all this.

Donald Trump..The man just want to burn the country down...wants to destroy the very institutions that gave him the platform to lead the US.

The same process that enabled him win the US election in 2016, he is now trying to demonize. I wonder the kinda legacy he wants to leave behind. He has just blown any chance of contesting in 2024.

For those predicting a tough time for the Biden administration in carrying out his various agendas. ...
Democrats just gained total control of both the Senate and Reps...so I expect nothing but a near smooth ride for Biden.

I never knew an American could be this power hungry. Trump should just accept defeat and move on with his life instead he chose to make another man's government ungovernable.
now I see the similarities in Trump and Bubu.







BIG RESPECT TO SIR GOODLUCK EBELE JONATHAN.
MEN LIKE YOU ARE SCARCE O.... IF YOU HAD DISAGREED WITH THE RESULTS IN 2015 NIGERIA WOULD HAVE TURNED INTO A WAR ZONE.

Biden shouldn't expect a smooth ride in his presidency, just like his democrat allies didn't give trump a smooth ride aswell. Biden is begging for cooperation from d GOP, Do his party members also cooperate with trump presidency?? You created this mess by urself with your ''this is not our president protest in 2016. Una never see anything. I see trump becoming a godfather to d republicans and starts calling shots in his party when he lives office. Biden is in for a rough presidency. Those conservatives will Mk him smell pepper. O ti rii nkenken grin
