Trump undoubtedly encouraged insurrection: President Biden following Colorado SC’s decision

United States: Following the top court in Colorado’s decision to prevent the Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump from running for reelection due to the 2021 Capitol assault, US President Joe Biden stated on Wednesday that Trump had unmistakably supported an uprising.

“I’ll let the court make that decision. But he certainly supported an insurrection. No question about it, none, zero,” Biden told reporters after arriving in Milwaukee, Wisconsin aboard Air Force One, according to AFP.

“It is obvious. You witnessed it all,” continued the 81-one-year-old Democrat, who will probably run against Trump in a rerun of their 2020 contest for the presidency in 2024.

Even while Biden made a point of emphasizing that the courts should decide the issue, this was one of the few times he had explicitly addressed the several lawsuits that are accumulating against Trump.

The campaign of former President Trump has declared that it will file an appeal with the US Supreme Court against the Colorado ruling, which is limited to the state’s primary ballot.

The US Constitution’s 14th Amendment, which prohibits anyone pledged to defend the nation from holding public office but later acts in rebellion, is being successfully invoked in this, the first of several court lawsuits around the nation.

With Trump leading in the polls and experiencing low approval ratings, Biden has removed his guard and begun attacking Trump directly with language. At a Tuesday campaign reception outside of Washington, Biden stated, “Our democracy is the greatest threat that Trump poses because all is lost if we lose,” according to AFP.

 He said that Trump was “sitting there, watching it unfold on TV as a mob attacked the Capitol” during the January 6, 2021, attack on the Republican candidate’s supporters that was intended to reverse Trump’s defeat by Biden.
