Biden goes after Trump ‘lies’ in democracy speech after Pelosi attack

President Biden on Wednesday went after former President Trump and other Republicans who continue to tout 2020 election lies, warning democracy is on the ballot just six days before the midterms and following the violent attack on Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) husband.


“American democracy is under attack because the defeated former president of the United States refused to accept the results of the 2020 election,” Biden said.


The president, speaking at a Democratic National Committee event at Union Station near the Capitol, warned the public that the country faced a crossroads in next week’s election that could upend democracy.
