Joe Biden reacted with a statement to the acquittal of Donald Trump by the Senate for his second trial in impeachment.
President Joe Biden said on Saturday that despite Donald Trump’s acquittal at his impeachment trial, “the merits of the charge” were “not in dispute,” and that the Jan.6 attack on Capitol Hill showed that democracy was “fragile”.
“Even if the final vote did not result in a conviction, the merits of the accusation are not in dispute,” said the Democrat after the acquittal voted by the US Senate in the second impeachment trial of his predecessor republican. “This sad chapter in our history reminded us that democracy is fragile. That it must always be defended. That we must always remain vigilant,” Joe Biden said in a statement.
