"It's not an exaggeration to say that America owes you, owes you all, and I really mean this, a debt of gratitude. One we can never fully repay, unless we live up to what you did," Joe Biden said in a video widely shared video on social media.
“If I can halt for a second, and just say to you, the impact of what happened on July the 6th had international repercussions beyond what any of you I think can fully understand,” he said with the wrong date.
During the ceremony, Joe Biden awarded 14 medals, saying, "Despite our differences in opinion, we must say clearly with a united voice...there's no place, zero, zero place in America for voter intimidation...for political violence."
Targeting former president Donald Trump and the Republicans, Joe Biden said,
"All of it was fueled by lies about the 2020 election but on this day two years ago our democracy held because we the people...did not flinch. History will remember your names..remember your courage and remember your bravery."
