The riots in the Capitol 186

The White House spokesman issued a 12-page statement in connection with the investigation into the Capitol riots on January 6, 2021.

Trump has accused his successor in office, Joe Biden, of trying to divert attention from the plight of the economy by investigating him.

"Democrats have allowed this disaster and are now fleeing responsibility," he said.

The former president described the parliamentary riot investigation as deliberate.

"All these actions are aimed at preventing me from participating in the presidential vote in 2024," Trump said.

The statement of the 45th US head of state was circulated after the parliamentary committee investigating the riots accused him of being behind them and thus tried to stay in power.

According to the US Constitution, Trump has the right to run for president, as he led the country for only one four-year term.

The vote of head of state will take place on November 5, 2024.
