Biden condemns ‘horrific act of violence’ at Waukesha Christmas parade

President Biden on Monday afternoon provided his condolences to the households of the 5 individuals who died Sunday when the driving force of an SUV plowed via a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

Dozens extra have been injured when the driving force callously mowed down a marching band, members of the Dancing Grannies and a bunch of women waving pom-poms.

“We know this morning that five families in Waukesha are facing the fresh grief of life without a loved one. At least 40 Americans are suffering from injuries, some of them in critical condition. And an entire community is struggling — struggling to cope with a horrific act of violence,” Biden mentioned.

“Last night, the people of Waukesha were gathered to celebrate the start of a season of hope and togetherness and thanksgiving. This morning, Jill and I and the entire Biden family, and I’m sure all of us, pray that that same spirit is gonna embrace it and lift up all the victims of this tragedy, bringing comfort to those recovering from their injuries and wrapping the families of those who died in the support of our community.”

The president gave his first public remarks on the tragedy earlier than talking about his determination to renominate Jerome Powell for a second time period as chairman of the Federal Reserve.
