A Wisconsin congressman was among the Republicans condemning the chaotic scene Wednesday as protesters surrounded the Capitol amid the certification of the Electoral College vote results and many of them stormed the building.
Rep. Mike Gallagher, a Marine Corps veteran and supporter of President Donald Trump, made it clear that the tense situation at the Capitol needed to stop before it got any worse.
“We are witnessing absolute banana republic crap in the United States Capitol right now. @realdonaldtrump, you need to call this off,” Gallagher tweeted to the president.
