President Biden and Vice President Harris Deliver Remarks on Anniversary of Capitol Hill Riot
Precisely one year ago, a huge crowd of then-President Donald Trump's supporters made their way to the Capitol building, prompting an evacuation of lawmakers. The protesters wanted to stop Congress from certifying Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election, citing voter fraud.
