US President, Joe Biden has reacted to the outcome of former President, Donald Trump’s trial at the Senate.

Trump was on Saturday acquitted of the US Capitol insurrection charges against him.

And in reaction, Biden, who took over from Trump last month said that the Capitol attack showed that, “democracy is fragile.”

After the House of Representatives had impeached him for a second time last month, the Senate voted 57-43 to acquit Trump in his second impeachment trial and first in US history.

“While the final vote did not lead to a conviction, the substance of the charge is not in dispute,” Biden said in a statement after the acquittal.

“This sad chapter in our history has reminded us that democracy is fragile. That it must always be defended. That we must be ever vigilant,” the President added.

Trump was accused of inciting a mob that attacked the US Capitol on January 6, 2020 in a bid to stop the certification of Joe Biden’s victory
