On Wednesday, President Biden falsely claimed that five Capitol Police officers had been killed during the January 6th 2021 riots.
Biden made the remarks in a speech on how his administration is planning on ‘Building A Better America.’
The President began by suggesting that Russian President Vladimir Putin was “counting on” being able to divide America.
“We’re not perfect — we’re not even close — but we never have walked away,” he said. “And Vladimir Putin was counting on being able to split up the United States.”
These remarks were followed by misinformation regarding the Capitol riot.
