The Biden campaign is preparing to hit President Donald Trump hard on the one-year anniversary of the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection, accusing him of brazenly trying to overturn the will of the American people.

Biden’s campaign team is focusing their increased attention on Trump and the events that day, which proved to be a crucial turning point in the former vice president’s candidacy and energized the push to impeach Trump with ultimately successful bipartisan support.

In a video released Monday, Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris call the insurrection an “open assault on our government and the rule of law” and a “shocking attack” on democracy.

The campaign also released a digital ad urging Americans to “hold those who incited it accountable.”

“We can’t forget what happened that day, and the dangerous and undemocratic steps President Trump and his supporters took to try to seize control of our country,” Biden said in the video. “Our democracy must always prevail.”

Biden will call out Trump’s “repeated attempts to undermine the integrity of our elections” as part of his Jan. 6 speech.

He is also expected to address the insurrection’s legacy, noting that its perpetrators “should not receive special treatment and must be held fully accountable for their actions.”

The Biden campaign hopes that, one year after the insurrection, the focus on Trump’s actions on that day serves to remind Americans of how dangerous Trump’s disregard for democracy is and how much is at stake in the coming year.
