President Donald Trump released a video on Twitter calling for his angry supporters to go home after thousands gathered outside the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, and some breached the building, using force against members of law enforcement.
In his message, Trump repeated false claims of election fraud in the 2020 presidential election before asking his supporters for peace.
“You have to go home now, we have to have peace. We have to have law and order. We have to respect our great people in law and order,” Trump said. “We love you. You’re very special,” he continued.
