Biden: Assault on voting rights greatest since Civil War

United States President Joe Biden stated on Wednesday that the assault on voting rights in the country has been the greatest since the Civil War.

Speaking to reporters ahead of his trip back to Washington, he asserted that he never thought he would see an attack on the Capitol that happened on January 6 in his lifetime and that he believes the world will reach an "inflection point" in the next three to five years when it comes to the global standing of democracy.

Earlier this month, the Biden administration stated they will be taking steps to fight voter suppression legislation, but the path through Congress is tough with members of the Democratic Party unwilling to go for broader legislation on voting rights.
