President-elect Joe Biden on Thursday blasted Wednesday’s storming of the U.S. Capitol by a mob of President Donald Trump’s supporters. “Yesterday, in my view, was one of the darkest days in the history of our nation,” Biden said in a speech from Wilmington, Del. “We could see it coming. The past four years we’ve had a president who’s made his contempt for our democracy, our Constitution, the rule of law clear in everything he has done.”
