President Joe Biden has reacted to the Senate’s acquittal of former president Donald Trump from charges of inciting insurrection at the US Capitol in January.
Mr Biden said the January 6 attack on the country’s seat of power shows that “democracy is fragile.”
“While the final vote did not lead to a conviction, the substance of the charge is not in dispute,” Biden said after the Senate voted 57-43 to acquit Trump in his second impeachment trial.
“This sad chapter in our history has reminded us that democracy is fragile. That it must always be defended. That we must be ever vigilant,” Biden said in a statement after Trump’s trial on charges he incited the mob that overran Congress on January 6.
