Did the NYPD use excessive force during the BLM demonstrations?
WASHINGTON DC (77WABC) – As of January 20th, Joe Biden will be the next President of the United States.
Last week he appealed for peace on TV as a vilent mob invaded the US Capitol.
“The whole room went silent,” Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., recalled as everyone listened to Biden denounce the insurrection and call for calm.
The respectful manner in which the lawmakers listened to Biden during one of America’s darkest moments gave Klobuchar hope that the new president has an opportunity to guide the country past the tumultuous final stretch of Donald Trump’s presidency.
For now, Biden says he will leave decisions about whether or not to remove Trump up to Congress.
“What the Congress decides to do is for them to decide,” Biden told reporters last week. “But I’m going to have to and they’re going to have to be ready to hit the ground running, because when Kamala (Harris) and I are sworn in, we’re going to be introducing, immediately, significant pieces of legislation that will deal with the virus, deal with the economy, and deal with economic growth.”
