WASHINGTON: The US President Joe Biden has recently strongly criticized the US republicans for trivializing the Capitol Hill attack. In a statement the US President stated that the Republicans ought to feel ashamed for endorsing Fox News‘ attempt to minimize the gravity of the January 6, 2021 attack on Congress, which was carried out by a group of Donald Trump’s supporters.
He shared a post on social media micro-blogging network Twitter in which he said that “More than 140 officers were injured on Jan 6. I’ve said before: How dare anyone diminish or deny the hell they went through?” Biden tweeted. “I hope House Republicans feel ashamed for what was done to undermine our law enforcement.”
In his Twitter handle, the US President Joe Biden expressed his support for the Capitol Hill police, whose chief has accused Fox News presenter Tucker Carlson of manipulating video footage of the unprecedented assault after the former US President Trump election defeat.
In another statement, the Chief Capitol Police officer Mr. Thomas Manger said Carlson’s show aired this week was “filled with offensive and misleading conclusions.”
