Vice President Pence Pleads With Pro-Trump Rioters to Leave the Capitol

High drama ensued at the US Capitol as pro-Donald Trump protestors breached barricades and stormed the building as the US Congress and Senate convened for a joint session to certify Joe Biden’s victory in the Presidential elections on November 3rd.

Vice President Pence calls for rioters to leave the Capitol building: “The violence and destruction taking place at the US Capitol Must Stop and it Must Stop Now”

President Trump’s former acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, also called for police to immediately arrest anyone participating in violence at the US Capitol Building, calling such acts “unAmerican.”

“Anyone participating in violence must be arrested. Immediately. This is unacceptable. And unAmerican,” he tweeted Wednesday. 

Grenell is among a handful of current and former Trump officials who have condemned the violence unfolding at the US Capitol.

While the President has tweeted about the situation, his calls for protesters to “remain peaceful” have been criticized by lawmakers in his own party as insufficient.

While some lawmakers accused Trump of inciting a coup, foreign leaders also expressed concern over the state of affairs.
