President Joe Biden issued a statement in response to former President Donald Trump’s acquittal Saturday by claiming that the “substance” of the charge against him is “not in dispute.” Describing the recent turmoil as a “sad chapter in our history” that has “reminded us that democracy is fragile,” Biden admonished Americans to be “ever vigilant” against violent extremism that would threaten their institutions. The Senate acquitted Trump 57-43 on Saturday after he was impeached by the House of Representatives for allegedly inciting an insurrection on Jan. 6, when a mob of his supporters broke into the Capitol. After blasting his predecessor, Biden called for an end to what he described as “the uncivil war” afflicting the United States. “That is the task ahead,” he wrote. “And it’s a task we must undertake together. As the United States of America.”
