U.S. President Joe Biden told voters that his potential election opponent Donald Trump is a threat to democracy, the day before the third anniversary of the January 6 Capitol riot.

Trump was impeached for allegedly inciting the mob that stormed Congress to stop Biden succeeding him. Both candidates are using one of America’s darkest moments in history to rally polarized voters for what’s already a turbulent presidential election.
