Former President Donald Trump called President Joe Biden’s speech on the anniversary of the Jan. 6 Capitol storming “political theater” that Biden is using to distract from the fact that he has “completely and totally failed.”

“Biden, who is destroying our Nation with insane policies of open Borders, corrupt Elections, disastrous energy policies, unconstitutional mandates, and devastating school closures, used my name today to try to further divide America,” Trump wrote in an email to American Military News. “This political theater is all just a distraction for the fact Biden has completely and totally failed.”

“Our Country no longer has Borders, has totally and completely lost control of Covid (record numbers!), is no longer Energy Independent, Inflation is rampant, our Military is in chaos, and our exit, or surrender, from Afghanistan was perhaps the most embarrassing day in the long and distinguished history of the United States—and so much more,” he added.

Trump then turned his focus to the Jan. 6 Committee “of totally partisan political hacks” and accused the group of making their judgement on Jan. 6 storming “long ago.” The former president also asked why the committee is “not discussing the rigged Presidential Election of 2020?”

“It’s because they don’t have the answers or justifications for what happened. They got away with something, and it is leading to our Country’s destruction,” Trump wrote. “They want all conversation concerning the Election ‘Canceled.’ Just look at the numbers, they speak for themselves. They are not justifiable, so the complicit media just calls it the Big Lie, when in actuality the Big Lie was the Election itself.”

“The Democrats want to own this day of January 6th so they can stoke fears and divide America,” the 45th president continued. “I say, let them have it because America sees through theirs lies and polarizations.”

In a separate email, Trump said Biden is “working hard to try and deflect the incompetent job he is doing, and has done, on the horrible Afghanistan withdrawal (surrender), the Borders, COVID, Inflation, loss of Energy Independence, and much more.”

“Everything he touches turns to failure. That’s what you get when you have a rigged Election,” Trump concluded.

On Thursday, President Joe Biden repeatedly attacked former President Donald Trump during his speech on the anniversary of the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol.

Biden characterized the storming as an “armed insurrection” composed of people who were looking to “deny the will of the people” and seeking to “overturn” a “free and fair election.”
