Trump Releases Video Condemning Capitol Siege As He Faces Another Impeachment trial

Washington: United States President Donald Trump condemned the violent attack on the Capitol building last week and urged Americans to be united in a video released on Wednesday, hours after being impeached for “incitement of insurrection.”
“I want to be very clear; I unequivocally condemn the violence that we saw last week. Violence and vandalism have absolutely no place in our country and no place in our movement,” he said in his first remarks since the House of Representatives voted to impeach him for the second time.
“No true supporter of mine could ever endorse political violence,” Trump said, adding that those involved in the riot “will be brought to justice.”
“There is never a justification for violence. No excuses, no exceptions: America is a nation of laws,” he said, calling on his supporters to remain peaceful amid concerns of further unrest ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.
The president said that he had directed federal law enforcement agencies “to use all necessary resources to maintain order in Washington DC.”
Trump’s video was released at the same time US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was signing the article of impeachment against him.
“Today in a bipartisan way the House demonstrated that no one is above the law, not even the president of the United States,” the top Democrat in Congress said at the signing ceremony.
The president did not mention the impeachment, which he had referred to earlier this week as the “continuation of the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics.”
