Trump, Biden speak on storming of US Capital - DW News.

After his supporters stormed the US Capitol, President Donald Trump released a video message on Twitter in which he says the election was fraudulent, but that his supporters should go home.
"I know your pain. I know you're hurt. We had an election that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election and everyone knows it," he said in the video.
"But you have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order.
"We don't want anyone hurt.
"This was a fraudulent election, but we can't play into the hands of these people. We have to have peace. So go home, we love you, you're very special. You've seen what happens, you see the way others are treated that are so bad and so evil.
"Go home and go home in peace.
Trump's message came after President elect Joe Biden spoke in Wilmington, Delaware, calling on Trump to appear on television and tell the mob to end the "siege."
Biden said Trump needs to "step up" and "fulfill his oath and defend the constitution and demand an end to this siege." Biden said was "not a protest, it's insurrection."
"Like so many other Americans I am genuinely shocked and sad that our nation, so long a beacon of hope and democracy has come to such a dark moment."
