Biden will, during a Thursday speech at the Capitol, "lay out … the singular responsibility President Trump has for the chaos and carnage that we saw," White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday, ABC News reported.

"He will forcibly push back on the lie spread by the former president in an attempt to mislead the American people and his own supporters as well as distract from his role and what happened," she told reporters.

Psaki declined to say whether Biden would call out Trump by name. "We’ll see," she said, adding that, "people will know who he’s referring to."

Following a speech from then-President Donald Trump on Jan. 6, 2021, Trump supporters rushed the Capitol, disrupting the certification of the presidential election results.
