Biden was against sending the national guard to restore order in riot ridden cities in summer 2020.

While addressing the National Guard Association, Biden took on Trump for dominating peacefully protesting citizens, saying "we are better than this."

While addressing the National Guard Association, Biden took on Trump for dominating peacefully protesting citizens, saying "we are better than this."On the fourth day of the Democratic National Convention on Aug 29, 2020, at the Chase Center in Wilmington, Del, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said that as a president, he would never use the military as a prop or private militia. He accused U.S. President Donald Trump of employing U.S. forces to settle “personal vendettas” and violate citizens’ rights, where in July, the president deployed federal forces to Chicago and Albuquerque, New Mexico, after earlier sending Homeland Security agents to Portland, Oregon.

While addressing the conference, Biden promised not to exploit the National Guard for political purposes and restore the relationship between civilians and the military, which he called “the bedrock principle of our republic.”

In a virtual address to the National Guard Association of the United States’ general conference, Biden said, Trump recommended: “that you should be deployed to quote, ‘dominate,’ your fellow citizens for exercising their right to protest peacefully.” “We’re so much better than this,” Biden said. “You deserve so much better.” Therefore, the claim is true.

While addressing the National Guard Association, Biden took on Trump for dominating peacefully protesting citizens, saying "we are better than this."
