The Business Roundtable and the United States Chamber of Commerce, two of the staunchest proponents of outsourcing American jobs, are condemning protests that occurred at the U.S. Capitol building, calling them “unconscionable and tragic events.”
On Wednesday, supporters of President Donald Trump breached security barriers at the U.S. Capitol following the “Save America” rally near the White House just as Congress was set to certify the 2020 presidential election.
Chamber of Commerce CEO Thomas Donohue called the protests “attacks against our nation’s Capitol Building and our democracy” and demanded they “end now.”
“The Congress of the United States must gather again this evening to conclude their constitutional responsibility to accept the report of the Electoral College,” Donohue said. “We extend our respect and appreciation to all of the law enforcement officials who are protecting our government, our elected officials, and our fellow citizens.”
