“The vast majority of the Trump supporters at the rally, 99 percent of them are good, law-abiding, taxpaying, hardworking American citizens that raise their kids,” he said, “and they were there to have a peaceful protest. Ninety-nine percent were peaceful.”

Biden adds to racial tensions

On Thursday, Biden added to racial tensions by alleging that members of the U.S. Capitol Police held back in their treatment of pro-Trump rioters because most were white.

“No one can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesters yesterday that they wouldn’t have been treated very differently than the mob that stormed the Capitol,” Fox News quoted Biden as saying on Thursday.

“We all know that’s true,” the president-elect insisted, adding that the perceived double standard was “unacceptable.”

In fact, Washington, D.C. saw days of rioting this summer that involved mayhem by those associated with the Black Lives Matter movement and yet none were killed by law enforcement.

By contrast, reported Trump supporter and Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt was fatally shot by authorities as she attempted to enter the Capitol.
