As the midterms are approaching and attempted domestic violence hammered its way into the elections, when an armed assailant broke into Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s home and violently attacked her husband, when she was away in D.C., President Joe Biden will address the nation from a location near Capitol Hill, on Wednesday. He will speak on protecting democracy and on political violence.
Biden will deliver the speech near the venue of the Capitol, the location where unprecedented political violence took place on Jan. 6 last year. The Democratic National Committee (DNC), the organizer of the event, said that President Biden will speak on “preserving and protecting our democracy.”
The DNC also said that he would mention the threat by election deniers as well as “those who seek to undermine faith in voting and democracy.” The speech will be made by the leader of the nation and the Democrats days before closing arguments are being made by candidates from both the parties.
President Biden has often addressed the issues of political violence and election denial by supporters of Donald Trump—the former Republican President of the nation. He has accused them of promoting “extremism.”
At an event by Axios, White House senior advisor Anita Dunn said that President Biden would be making his speech from Capitol Hill as there was “violence geared towards subverting the democratic processes” at that location on Jan. 6, so it would be “an appropriate place to make these remarks tonight.”
At the Axios event, White House deputy chief of staff Jen O’Malley said that Biden would also reiterate that it might take several days for counting of votes in some key swing states. In the 2020 presidential elections, election deniers made false accusations during the time that was needed to count votes.
Some Republicans refused to speak against the attack on Paul Pelosi as the assailant was looking to target Nancy Pelosi, when the Speaker had been away in Washington. An Arizona GOP nominee also mocked the assault at a campaign event.
President Biden’s speech comes at such a time when there is a perception of a threat to democracy and a heightened threat of domestic political violence, possible before, during or after the November midterms.
