President Donald Trump snapped Wednesday at Vice President Mike Pence as Trump fans stormed the Capitol, amid Congress beginning the procedure of licensing the governmental election results.
” Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what need to have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, providing States an opportunity to accredit a remedied set of facts, not the deceitful or incorrect ones which they were asked to previously license,” Trump, who has refused to concede to President-elect Joe Biden, tweeted after Pence and other legal leaders were blended to safety. “USA requires the fact!”
Trump earlier held a mass rally for his advocates ahead of Congress’ certification, which is normally a ritualistic procedure.
The hundreds of protesters, many of them carrying Trump flags, scaled the Capitol walls.
Trump later followed his very first tweet with a message of support for Capitol cops, who have been overwhelmed by the riots.
