President Trump on Wednesday urged his supporters to lower the temperature, a week after his followers stormed the U.S. Capitol in a mob that left several people dead.
“In light of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind. That is not what I stand for, and it is not what America stands for. I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers. Thank You,” Trump said in a statement that would likely show up on his Twitter feed, if the President still had one.
The statement took no responsibility for the violence Trump incited last week. Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Trump showed no remorse for the shocking attack on the seat of the United States government.
