Joe Biden, the United States President, has reacted to the outcome of former President, Donald Trump’s trial at the Senate.
Recall that Trump was acquitted over the weekend of the US Capitol insurrection charges against him.
Biden, who took over from Trump last month said in reaction that the Capitol attack showed that, “democracy is fragile.”
Despite being impeached by the House of Representatives for a second time last month, the Senate voted 57-43 to acquit Trump in his second impeachment trial and first in US history.
“While the final vote did not lead to a conviction, the substance of the charge is not in dispute,” Biden said in a statement after the acquittal.
“This sad chapter in our history has reminded us that democracy is fragile. That it must always be defended. That we must be ever vigilant,” the President added.
The former President’s accusation was that he incited a mob that attacked the US Capitol on January 6, 2020 in a bid to stop the certification of Joe Biden’s victory.
