He did not mince his words as he appropriately called out Donald Trump for his part in the insurrection at the Capitol in DC.
Do not doubt that Joe Biden is resolved to act

Joe Biden has taken off the gloves, not to fight to set the record straight. He will not coddle the president nor his band of terrorist thugs.
Biden blames the insurrection at the Capitol in Washington DC squarely on President Trump. Most importantly, he made it clear it was not at all a surprise.
“It was not a protest,” Biden said. “It was chaos. They were not protesters. Don’t dare call them protesters. They were a riotous mob. Insurrectionists. Domestic terrorists. It is that basic. It is that simple.”
But Biden would say more.
“I wish we could say, ‘We could not see it coming,’” Biden said. “That isn’t true. We could see it coming. For the past four years, we had a president who has made his contempt for our Democracy, our constitution, the rule of law; clear in everything he has done. He unleashed an all-out assault on the institutions of our democracy from the outset. And yesterday was the culmination of that unrelenting attack. He has attacked the free press who dared to question his power. He repeatedly called the free press the enemy of the people, language that at the time he first used it I and others said has long been used by autocrats and dictators all over the world to hold on to power.”
No one should doubt that, unlike many, Biden will ensure to be vocal to blame and not cower to some false civility.
