The United States President, Donald Trump, said he was “outraged by the violence, lawlessness, and mayhem” after a group alleged to be his supporters stormed the Capitol to halt the Congressional join sitting forcefully.
Trump in a video posted on Twitter on Thursday, said those demonstrators “defiled the seat of democracy” adding that, “to those who broke the law, you will pay,”
He further promised a smooth transition to President-elect Joe Biden after conceding defeats to the November’s presidential election.
“Now Congress has certified the results, a new administration will be inaugurated on Jan. 20.
“My focus now turns to ensuring a smooth, orderly and seamless transition of power,” he said.
However, in a message to his “wonderful supporters,” Trump added, “I know you are disappointed, but I also want you to know that our incredible journey is only just beginning.”
Nancy Pelosi and Chuk Schumer, the Democratic leaders in Congress, have demanded that Vice President Mike Pence, under the Constitution’s 25th Amendment, remove Trump.
A Republican Governor, a Republican lawmaker, and numerous House Democrats echoed the calls.
“If the vice president and Cabinet do not act, the Congress may be prepared to move forward with impeachment,” Pelosi told a press conference.
In 2019, Trump was impeached, but the Senate cleared him of all charges last year.
