While discussing his decision to withdraw US troops from war-torn Afghanistan, Joe Biden noted that global terrorist networks have largely moved beyond the country and that “ white supremacists ” pose a threat. larger than foreign players.
“We will not ignore what our intelligence agencies have determined to be the deadliest terrorist threat to our homeland today: white supremacy is terrorism,” Joe Biden said in the House chamber, who said was attacked three months ago by President Donald Trump in an attempt to overturn the result of the 2020 US presidential election.
“White supremacy is terrorism, and we are not going to ignore it either. My fellow Americans, listen, we must unite to heal the soul of this nation,” the US president said.
In remarks, Joe Biden acknowledged the Jan.6 insurgency attempt on Capitol Hill, saying it was an existential crisis that was testing democracy.
“As we gather here tonight, the images of a violent mob that assault this Capitol and desecrate our democracy remain alive in all of our minds. Lives have been endangered many of your lives. Lives have been lost. Extraordinary courage was summoned. The insurgency was an existential existence. Crisis, a test of whether our democracy could survive. It did, “said Joe Biden.
But he stressed that “the struggle is far from over” and that “the question of whether our democracy will last long is both ancient and urgent”.
