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.
Joining the discussion:
- Douglass Sloan is a political analyst and Principal at the National Capitol Strategy Group.
- Gene Rossi is a former Assistant U.S. Attorney.
- Adolfo Franco is an Attorney and Republican Strategist.
- Frank Sesno served as CNN’s Washington Bureau Chief. He’s currently the Executive Director of George Washington University’s Alliance for a Sustainable Future.
President Biden: "These MAGA voices who know the truth about Trump on January 6 have abandoned the truth and abandoned democracy. They made their choice… now the rest of us have to make our choice." pic.twitter.com/1shwOturB1
