President Joe Biden wipes away tears as Kamala Harris speaks about Capitol riot before taking hits at Donald Trump

PRESIDENT Joe Biden wiped away his tears as Kamala Harris spoke about the Capitol riots before taking hits at Donald Trump.

Biden and Vice President Harris delivered remarks on Thursday at the National Statuary Hall on the one-year anniversary of the January 6 insurrection.

The president was photographed in the wings tearing up while Harris addressed the nation.

Biden then went on to take hits at former President Trump – who was making a speech in Washington DC before the mob stormed the Capitol.

"We are a great nation. We must be absolutely clear about what is true and what is a lie," Biden said.

"And here is the truth: The former President of the United States of America has created and spread a web of lies about the 2020 election.

"His bruised ego matters more to him than our … Constitution. He refused to accept the results of the election."

Biden continued: "It's the first time in our history, a president who just lost an election tried to prevent the peaceful transfer of power.

"He's not just a former president he's a defeated president."

“In light of the total bias and dishonesty of the January 6th Unselect Committee of Democrats, two failed Republicans, and the Fake News Media, I am canceling the January 6th Press Conference at Mar-a-Lago on Thursday, and instead will discuss many of those important topics at my rally on Saturday, January 15th, in Arizona,” Trump wrote.

In the year since protesters broke down barricades in front of the Capitol building and forced their way onto the premises while Congress was certifying the 2020 election, the US Attorney's Office for Washington, D.C., has changed over 700 people.

Four people died on the day of the attack and one police officer, Brian Sicknick, died after suffering two strokes a day later.
