As tensions flare in Washington, D.C. President Trump has asked demonstrators to remain peaceful. In a tweet at the height of the lockdown of the Capitol Building, after the Rotunda was breached, the President calls for support of the Capitol Police and all members of law enforcement. The tweet also mentions that law enforcement officers are “truly on the side of our Country.”
In a subsequent tweet, President Trump asked everyone to remain peaceful, reminding his supporters that “WE are the Party of Law & Order,” adding that all should “respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue.”
The situation appears to be escalating as lockdowns are issued in our nation’s capital. Earlier today, extremely peaceful but passionate supporters of President Trump gathered in solidarity in the Ellipse near the Capitol Building for a “Save America March.” President Trump gave a powerful address to the crowd gathered before Congress’s joint session to count electoral votes.
