Biden calls pro-Trump rioters 'insurrectionists,' 'domestic terrorists'

President-elect Joe Biden called the Pro-Trump rioters who stormed the US Capitol "insurrectionists" and "domestic terrorists" in an address on Thursday.

"Yesterday was chaos, not a protest, not dissent. Don't dare call them protesters. They were a riotous mob, insurrectionists, domestic terrorists. It's that basic. It's that simple. I wish we could say we couldn't see it coming, but that isn't true," Biden said.

The incoming president described President Trump's actions over the past four years as having logically led to Wednesday's events, slamming his attacks on the press, US intelligence agencies and his decision to "incite a mob to attack" on the Capitol.
