President Donald Trump called for peace in a video after a mob of his supporters violently breached the Capitol building on Wednesday in protest of the certification of the 2020 election results for Democrat Joe Biden.
“I know your pain. I know your hurt,” Trump stated. “We had an election that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election, and everyone knows it, especially the other side. But you have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order. We have to respect our great people in law and order. We don’t want anybody hurt,” he said. “It’s a very tough period of time. There has never been a time like this where such a thing happened where they could take it away from all of us — from me, from you, from our country.”
