“Donald Trump was given every opportunity to defend himself,” Biden said. “A state case, not a federal case, was tried by a jury of twelve citizens, twelve Americans, twelve people like you, like millions of Americans who sat on juries.”

“This jury was chosen the same way every jury in America has been chosen,” the president said. “Five weeks after careful deliberation, the jury reached a unanimous verdict.”

Biden noted that Trump will have the opportunity to appeal his conviction after he is sentenced on July 11.

But the Democrat said “it is reckless and dangerous” for Trump to claim the criminal case was politically motivated and that the outcome was “manipulated” by the judge and others.

“Our legal system has been in place for almost 250 years,” Biden said. “And it is literally a cornerstone of America, our justice system… justice must be respected.”

“And we should never allow anyone to tear it down.” It's that simple. That's America. That's who we are.
It always will be, God willing.”
