Trump releases video statement about Capitol rioters and the election

President Donald Trump released a video on Twitter on Thursday with a statement about the rioting at the U.S. Capitol and the results of the presidential election.

The president posted the video after he recovered control of his account which had been suspended by Twitter for 12 hours over claims he had made about the election being stolen from him.

“I would like to begin by addressing the heinous attack on the U.S. Capitol,” said the president.

“Like all Americans I am outraged by the violence, lawlessness and mayhem. I immediately deployed the National Guard and federal law enforcement to secure the building and expel the intruders. America is and must always be a nation of law and order. The demonstrators who infiltrated the Capitol have defiled the seat of American democracy,” Trump said.

“To those who engaged in the acts of violence and destruction, you do not represent our country,” he added. “And to those who broke the law, you will pay.”

The president went on to address the election and the results which he had contested for weeks on social media and in the courts.

“My campaign pursued every legal avenue to contest the election results. My only goal was to ensure the integrity of the vote. In so doing, I was fighting to defend American democracy. I continue to strongly believe that we must reform our election laws to verify the identity and eligibility of all voters, and to ensure faith and confidence in all future elections,” Trump continued.

“Now Congress has certified the results,” he added. “A new administration will be inaugurated on January 20th. My focus now turns to ensuring a smooth, orderly and seamless transition of power. This moment calls for healing and reconciliation.”

He went on to tell his supporters that their journey was just beginning.

Here’s the video of the president’s statement:

  1. This speech was from the mind of a sincere & rational person; just the complete opposite of Trump. Trump is a very troubled man capable of doing only what benefits him personally. He is running scared now after the mayhem & destruction he caused at our nation’s capital. He should be held accountable, removed from office and go to jail! He is an embarrassment to our country & the world! His family should have had an intervention with him long before now & should have seeked mental counseling for this very ill man! May God heal our country & restore peace & sanity! May God have mercy on Donald Trump!

    1. This is entirely the lefts fault. After 8 years under Obummer and then 4 years of nothing but lies from the media about Trump they should have known this would start. Trump didn’t have anything to do with this, we are all adults with our own decision making capabilities

      1. I agree with you “Huh” ! President Trump did not promote – support – or perpetuate unlawful behavior. The future will reveal
        serious and unforgiveable results and the truth. Fraud – corruption – deception – and lies can not – will not – be able to sustain successful – positive outcomes .

    2. As usual, mentally unstable and morally evil people like yourself and the rest of the lying, criminal Dems ALWAYS blame someone else for exactly what THEY are doing. You and your kind have destroyed any semblance of sanity and brought craziness to the best, freest nation in the world. The blame is your own.

    3. Ann you are nothin more than a liberal with an empty head….You liberals want to see the US shafted by the corrupt and evil DEMS/RINOS………..You are the one that should seak mental counsesling as you are capable of a typical liberal with burning, looting, killing, and destroying property that is not yours.

    4. What is wrong with you people. Don’t you recognize when the media and politicians lie to you. They lie every time they open their mouth. Are you wanting the government to go into your bank account and take money to give to illegals? Because that is their goal.

  2. Law and Order does not exist anymore in America! I do not remember ANY Democrat denouncing the violence perpetrated by ANTIFA, BLM or the blacks rioting after everyone of their Criminal Heroes like Floyd and the other Criminals killed by Police!!

    Now we have to listen to the Lying Sacks of Canine Excrement like Pelosi, Schumer and Biden and their Useful Idiots in the media wanting to remove Trump from office! Their Hypocrisy Knows No Bounds.

    The Solution to America’s Problems is getting rid of the Democrat Party……Period!

  3. Trump did not concede by any means. We will all just
    wait and see what God has in mind…God is, and will always
    be in charge of whatever is happening..not even the Dems
    can stop that. That must be driving them crazy not to
    be able to control God..

  4. Liberal Socialist DemoncRATs have been working to set up the current ease of ELECTION FRAUD in the US since the 1960’s! Ever since they murdered JFK! Why else did they hide the investigation findings for ever? Then they started off by outlawing “poll taxes” which had been around since establishment of the republic by saying they were against civil rights!!!!!! Not!!!!!! They were intended to prevnt what is happening now! Those living off the public saying what they were entitled to and demanding they get it – FOR DOING NOTHING!!!!!

  5. President Trump’s message sounds very sound and sensible, unlike many of the messages of those who rebuke him. The signs of election fraud were plentiful. It seems like many people allowed their masks to slide up, instead of down, and covered their eyes and not their mouths. The people who have attempted to slaughter the members of Congress who spoke up to object to the Electoral College report should be commended, not damned.

  6. That is because the President is an honest man who loves his country. I fear we will not see another man with the integrity and honesty of Donald Trump ever again run for President. Look what they did to him.
