While still trying to please his base, Donald Trump released a statement on Wednesday urging “ALL Americans” to “ease tensions and calm tempers.”
“In light of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind,” Trump said in a statement to Fox News. “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.”
A senior adviser to Trump also told Fox News that Trump is “asking all Americans to join with him in ensuring that there is an orderly and peaceful transition next week. President Trump is also asking that Big Tech companies join with him in this effort.”
“This is a critical time in our nation’s history and surely we can all come together to deliver this important message and not continue to play partisan politics,” the adviser added.
As most of you know, Trump’s own supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol a week ago from today that led to the death of 5 people.
Since then, Democrats and Republicans have been on board to remove the president from office before his tenure ends in seven days.
