Mr. President @realDonaldTrump : the men & women of law enforcement are under assault. It is crucial you help restore order by sending resources to assist the police and ask those doing this to stand down.
Violence is always unacceptable. Even when passions run high.
Ted Cruz R TX
Violence is always unacceptable. Even when passions run high. Anyone engaged in violence—especially against law enforcement—should be fully prosecuted. God bless the Capitol Police and the honorable men & women of law enforcement who show great courage keeping all of us safe.
Bob Menendez D NJ
Today, I shed a tear for our country, which for centuries has inspired the world through its commitment to democracy and the rule of law. From Moscow to Beijing and beyond, autocrats are likely smiling as they witness America in disarray, at war with itself, and no longer a credible messenger for the democratic values that have always defined our great Republic. This was not an act of patriotism, but an act of sedition.
Mario Diaz-Balart R FL
The U.S. Capitol is the center and sacred symbol of democracy. Today’s violent acts are the most unacceptable aggression against the principles and values that are the foundation of our nation.
Nicole Malliotakis R NY
My staff and I are safe and have been brought to a secure location by the Capitol Police. Everyone who is responsible for this violence and lawlessness must stop. This is absolutely unnacceptable and un-American.
Maria Elvira Salazar R FL
While I am in Miami recovering from COVID-19, I’m deeply troubled by what is happening in Washington. I am praying for the safety of my colleagues & our law enforcement. There is absolutely no place for violence and rioting in the U.S. Capitol!
Albio Sires D NJ
The President wanted this. He is a disgrace.
Alex Mooney R WV
I’m safe. We’ve been equipped with escape hoods and we’re being moved through the Capitol.
