President Donald Trump released a video message to the American people on Wednesday evening, strongly condemning the violent uprising that occurred at the U.S. Capitol building last Wednesday.
The president’s message comes just hours after Congress voted to impeach him for the second time, holding him responsible and saying he incited his supporters to commit the invasion on the Capitol.
In the five-minute video, President Trump said the incident “struck at the very heart of our republic.”
“I want to very clear. I unequivocally condemn the violence we saw last week. Violence and vandalism have absolutely no place in our country, and no place in our movement. Making America Great Again has always been about defending the rule of law,” Trump said.
“Mob violence goes against everything I believe in, and everything our movement stands for. No true supporter of mine could ever endorse political violence. No true supporter of mine could ever disrespect law enforcement, or our great American flag. No true supporter of mine could ever threaten or harass their fellow Americans. If you do any of these things, you are not supporting our movement. You are attacking it, and you are attacking our country. We cannot tolerate it,” he added.
