Trump Calls for ‘NO Violence’ Amid Threats Made to Biden’s Inauguration

The White House disseminated the statement from Trump as the House was preparing to impeach him for inciting a violent riot at the U.S. Capitol last week that left five people dead.

“In light of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking, and NO vandalism of any kind,” Trump said. “That is not what I stand for, and it is not what America stands for. I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers. Thank You.”

His words came amid growing concerns about threats surrounding President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration next week.

The statement was first provided to Fox News and later released by the White House. Trump has been largely quiet since Twitter suspended his account last week “due to the risk of further incitement of violence.”
