United States President Donald Trump on Wednesday appealed for calm to “all Americans” as new protests across the country approach.
“I ask you: no violence, no crime, no vandalism,” wrote the tenant of the White House in a brief statement sent as Congress prepares to indict him for encouraging the assault on the Capitol a week ago.
“This is not what we represent and this is not what America represents”, “he added. “I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions,” he wrote.
Accused of inciting insurrection
The Democratic Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi had just solemnly accused the 45th President of the United States of having “incited this insurrection, this armed rebellion”.
“He must go, he is an obvious and immediate danger against the nation that we all love,” she hammered into a barricaded Congress just before the vote on this indictment for having encouraged the January 6 assault which killed five people and shook American democracy.
A few days before his departure for Mar-a-Lago, Florida, where he is expected to start his new life as a former president, Donald Trump appears more and more disconnected from what is happening in Washington.
Tuesday, he had tried to reduce the procedure targeting yet another “witch hunt”. And had stubbornly refused to recognize any responsibility in the assault on the Capitol, judging that his speech had been “quite appropriate”.
