The threat level facing President Biden and the nation has not decreased since the Capitol attack. Even if Senator Marco Rubio doesn’t believe it, the best way to get a message across to Trump’s domestic terrorists is to hold Donald Trump accountable.
Ignoring the threat or Trump’s role in encouraging and inciting will not make them go away. As long as people like Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) refuse to admit the election wasn’t stolen and continue repeating Trump’s big lie, America and its leaders will continue to face heightened risk of threats.
Presidents are always goals, but the current environment was created by Donald Trump, activated by the Republican Party, and distributed through Fox News.
