WASHINGTON (Reuters) – United States President Donald Trump called on his supporters on Wednesday not to hold new demonstrations, as some of them are threatening to do, with downtown Washington looking more and more like an armed camp. before Joe Biden took office as the next president on January 20.
“In light of reports of further demonstrations, I appeal that there can be NO violence, NO law violations and NO vandalism of any kind,” Trump said in a statement.
“This is not what I stand for, and it is not what the United States stands for. I ask ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers. Thank you.”
