Many people are calling on President Donald Trump to resign. This comes after his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol and breached security. One of those people is Governor Scott, a Republican. He took to Twitter to release a statement about the violent riots that broke out on the U.S. Capitol today.
His statement asked President Trump to resign, or for his immediate removal from office. In his tweet, he wrote: “President Trump should resign or be removed from office by his Cabinet, or by the congress.” He called the riots “a very disturbing time for our nation.” He condemned the protests, and called them an “unacceptable attack on our democracy.”
However, Scott is not alone. Many others are calling for Trump’s resignation.
People call for President Trump to resign
On Wednesday evening, January 6, the word “resign” is trending in the U.S. on Twitter. That’s because several people are calling for his resignation. The violent protests that erupted on the U.S. Capitol have been slammed by both Democrats and Republicans. Most of them have released individual statements on Twitter.
Most of them blamed Trump for inciting the riots. Even Bernie Sanders agrees that Trump is the reason for what happened on Wednesday afternoon.
“The man directly responsible for the chaos of today is Donald Trump, who has made it clear that he will do anything to remain in power – including insurrection and inciting violence,” Sanders tweeted. “Trump will go down in history as the worst and most dangerous president in history.”
This is a very disturbing time for our nation. What we are seeing today at the U.S. Capitol is not a peaceful protest – it is an unacceptable attack on our democracy. 1/

Meanwhile, Senator Leahy tweeted to assure people that he and other senators were safe on Capitol Hill. Both Democrats and Republicans will move forward with the certification of the 2020 election for President-elect Joe Biden.

“Safe with the other Senators. We are eager to get back on Senate Floor when safe and resume the certification of the election,” Leahy wrote. “I applaud President-elect Biden’s remarks a few moments ago.”

CAIR condemns attack on U.S. Capitol
The Council on American-Islamic Relations, one of the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights organizations, also condemned the attack on the U.S. Capitol. In a statement to PR News, they called it an act of “violent insurrection” and asked the government to protect those in harm’s way. CAIR also asked both Democrats and Republicans to call for President Donald Trump’s resignation from office.
They blame Donald Trump for inciting violence among his supporters at a rally earlier today. CAIR demands his impeachment if he refuses to step down. Trump made it clear that he refuses to concede. At the end of his speech, he told supporters to take it to Capitol Hill, which is what led to today’s acts.
Trump eventually released a video statement. He told his supporters to “go home” after the riots started. In the one-minute video, he also claimed that the election was stolen from under him. He concluded his message by adding: “We love you. You are very special.”
