Biden, in Address to Nation, Calls on Trump to 'Demand an End to this Siege'

President-elect Joe Biden issued a video statement on Wednesday, December 6, calling on US President Donald Trump to go on national TV to “demand an end” to what he described as the “siege” of the US Capitol.

“Today is a reminder, a painful one, that democracy is fragile, and to preserve it requires people of good will, leaders with the courage to stand up,” said Biden.

Biden concluded, “President Trump – step up.” As he left the room and reporters shouted questions after him, Biden turned back to the cameras and said, “Enough is enough is enough.” Credit: Biden-Harris Presidential Transition via Storyful
