Biden to mark January 6 by leaving DC, giving speech at Valley Forge

President Joe Biden is set to commemorate the third anniversary of the 2021 Capitol riot with a speech at Valley Forge, the historic site where George Washington led American troops during the Revolutionary War.

Originally scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 6, the speech has been moved to Friday due to anticipated inclement weather in Philadelphia over the weekend.

The announcement

During his remarks in Pennsylvania, Biden aims to frame the 2024 presidential election as a crucial battle for democracy.

His reelection campaign revealed plans for another speech at the Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, the location of the 2015 shooting by a white supremacist.

In this address, Biden seeks to draw a contrast with former President Donald Trump and the perceived "anti-freedom agenda" of his "[Make America Great Again] apostles," according to the Biden campaign.

Campaign plans

Biden campaign manager Julie Chavez Rodriguez emphasized the ongoing battle for the soul of America, echoing Biden's sentiments from his presidential run four years ago.

Trump was a central focus of the campaign briefing, with top Biden officials expressing concern about the growing threat they attribute to him. Chavez Rodriguez stressed that the Biden reelection campaign operates with the conviction that the fate of democracy hinges on their efforts.

Looking ahead to the first Republican presidential primary in Iowa, Biden campaign communications director Michael Tyler commented on the potential GOP candidates, emphasizing concerns about their positions.

While Trump remains a prominent figure, Tyler highlighted the stances of other Republicans, including Nikki Haley and Ron DeSantis, over various views during their campaigns.

Hidin' Biden, Part 2?

The Biden campaign did not provide details on the frequency of the president's campaign trail appearances, indicating a focus on official White House duties until an official Republican presidential nominee is determined.

Campaign officials disclosed plans for President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris to mark the 51st anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling on Jan. 22, but little else on the schedule.

Meanwhile, hundreds of Americans have been convicted of crimes over Jan. 6, along with former President Donald Trump, who faces an upcoming court case in Washington.

Biden may be leaving the White House for Jan. 6 but it won't help in his efforts for a second term after three years marked by low approval ratings and concerns over his age and health, including concerns from many in his own party.
