Barack Obama Releases Assertion After US Capitol Riots – Calls The Assault A ‘Second Of Nice Disgrace And Dishonor!’
After supporters of Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol in protest of the president’s results, Barack Obama and several other former US presidents as well as President-elect Joe Biden released their statements on the disappointing unrest. Check out what they had to say!
First, Obama made sure that American citizens were encouraged to remain united despite the years of national division that led to the forcible takeover of the Capitol.
As you probably know by now, the pro-Trump people who did this protested Joe Biden as the next POTUS since Donald and his administration claimed the election was “stolen” from him, meaning the many votes were fraudulent !
In response to the situation in the US Capitol, Barack Obama wrote the following statement: “History will remember the violence in the Capitol today, instigated by a seated president who continued to lied about the outcome of these legitimate elections as one Moment of great shame and shame shame on our nation. But we’d be kidding ourselves if we took it as a total surprise. For the past two months, a political party and its associated media ecosystem has often not been ready to tell its supporters the truth – that this was not a particularly tight election and that President-elect Joe Biden will be inaugurated on January 20th. Now we see the consequences that have led to a violent crescendo. ‘
In part, he went on to say, “The republican leaders now have a choice that will be made clear in the desecrated chambers of our democracy. You can continue on this path or you can choose reality. […] You can choose America. ‘
