Enemy of lying pomposity, smugness and groupthink scary scenario: great segments thanks: Residentpresident Trump is Calli, calm, peace law and order. Here are his remarks in full. Take a look. I would like to begin by addressing the heinous attack on the United States capital. Like all Americans, I am outraged by the violence, lawlessness and mayhem. I immediately deployed the National Guard and federal law enforcement to secure the building and expel the intruders intruders. America is and must always be a nation of law and order. Two demonstrators who infiltrated the capital have defiled the seat of american democracy to those who engaged in the acts of violence and destruction. You do not represent our country and to those who broke the law,
you will pay. We have just been through an intense election and emotions are high. Now tempers must be cooled and calm restored. We must get on with the business of America. My campaign vigorously pursued every legal avenue to contest the election results. My only goal was to ensure the integrity of the vote. In so doing, I was fighting to defend american democracy. I continue to strongly believe we must reform our election laws to verify the identity and eligibility of all voters and to ensure faith and confidence in all future elections. Now Congress has certified the results. A new administration will be inaugurated on January 20th. My focus now turns to ensuring a smooth, orderly and seamless transition of power. This moment calls for healing
and reconciliation. Two thousand and twenty has been a challenging time for our people. The menacing pandemic has upended the lives of our citizens, isolated millions in their homes, damaged our economy and claimed countless lives defeating this pandemic and rebuilding the greatest economy on earth will require all of us working together. It will require a renewed emphasis on the civic values of patriotism, faith, charity, community and family. We must revitalize the sacred bonds of love and loyalty that bind us together as one national family to the citizens of our country, serving as your president has been the honor of my lifetime and to all of my wonderful supporters. I know you are disappointed, but I also want you to know that our incredible journey is only just beginning. Thank you. God bless you and
God bless America important speech and, as is the presidents signature style, he fought as hard as he possibly could. After the actions of Congress last night, pretty much any remedy he had and what he had been fighting for had been exhausted. The presidents right to do it law and order must always prevail, call must be restored. We must get on with the business of America and an important part of that business is fixing flaws in our election process. Every state legislature needs to get busy. Let me make a prediction: after the first one hundred days, Democrats now full control of the government and the media mob, the never trumpers all working together to help elect Joe Biden. My attitude is you broke it, you own it and guess what we know you helped somebody everybody knew was physically weak and frail, clearly struggling cognitively. Who also has the most radical
socialist agenda in the history of this country. I rode a whole chapter, socialism and history of failure. Predictably, it fails collect taxes, go up. Energy prices go up hostile regimes. I think they see Joe Biden the way. Most of America does Russia, China, IRAN elsewhere. They cause problems. Lets see how he deals with it Idhope he deals with it for the sake of the world to the right way. When you realize how dull and boring Joe is im betting here, but those never trumpers the media mob, they are use to a daily diet of waking up and feigning outrage and a psychotic rage and hate when the mob in the media. All of a sudden, they are going to realize hes kind of boring, covering Joe whats trump doing today, theyre going to promise, they will stop covering trump. They will be back to covering trump
and mark my words. The words miss me yet will resonate. Miss me yet will resonate sooner than you think. Lets see what many of you think about the 25th amendment over time. What are you going to think about the 25th amendment now that youre talking about so much now? We must determine what went wrong at the? U dot s capital, that is our top priority. Capitol police chief has officially resigned. The house sergeant of arms has also stepped down. Americans demand answers, rightly so what we all witnessed yesterday inside the capitol building that could never happen again in this country. That building belongs to be the people. This is our house and it was breached and it was breached within minutes with relative ease, the capitol police, its inexplicable. They knew. Hundreds of thousands of Americans had descended upon Washington yesterday. They knew what their plan was to March
from the Washington monument to the capital they knew Congress would be in session, got to protect all elected officials and they would be conducting important business. They knew the vice president would be there. Ninety nine percent of those who attended the rally remained outside the capitol building. As we pointed out last night, we told you if you have any desire to understand who they are and why they are there. We spelled it out in great detail. Last night, good, hardworking, honest people, work hard play by the rules, pay their taxes, obey the laws, raise their kids and still the capitol police were totally unprepared for the one percent. The agitators who had ulterior motives. This transcends all politics. We do live in a post, 9, slash eleven world, this kind of security breach at our nations capital, where the Peoples House, elected representatives and innocent people are is beyond shocking and it is completely unacceptable
guess what every one of Americas enemies witnessed. This massive vulnerability I was shocked. I couldnt believe within a minute two minutes they were in. They see our capitol building is wide open. What, if Al Qaeda, what if the nicest terrorists were among those that preach that the building yesterday, that is a nightmare scenario, heres what needs to happen? We need a full, transparent investigation of what went wrong and who screwed up number two, those that did break the law riot breach the building theyve got to be arrested and prosecuted, committed vandalism them too. We need to make a plan. This can never happen again and we.
