Senate not to lose focus on other urgent matters - Biden

United States President-elect Joe Biden urged the Senate to remain focused on his agenda despite the lawmakers currently being in the process of starting President Donald Trump's impeachment trial.

The effort against the president was taken after he allegedly incited his supporters to storm the Capitol building last week while Congress was in session. "This criminal attack was planned and coordinated. It was carried out by political extremists and domestic terrorists, who were incited to this violence by President Trump," Biden said, underscoring the need of holding the head of state accountable for his part in the incident.

The incoming president also reminded the upper congressional chamber, however, it should not lose sight of the nation's other urgent business such as the "reeling economy" and the coronavirus pandemic.
