Soon to be sworn in president of the United States, Joe Biden has weighed in on the actions of police during the invasion of the capitol on Wednesday. Biden has joined others in the outright condemnation of police action against blacks.
“No one can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesting yesterday… they wouldn’t have been treated very, very different than the mob of thugs that stormed the Capitol,” Biden said.
“We all know that’s true, and it is unacceptable.”
The President-elect assailed Donald Trump a day after pro-Trump rioters smashed their way into the Capitol, saying the outgoing leader had caused one of the “darkest days” in US history.
“He unleashed an all-out assault on the institutions of our democracy from the outset,” Biden said.
Wednesday’s storming of the Capitol was “one of the darkest days in the history of our nation,” he added.
