The attempted coup initiated by outgoing President Trump was despicable. Today, it has become violent. If blood is shed, it will be on his hands. These actions, fueled by the lies and unbridled conspiracy theories espoused by President Trump, must be categorically condemned by every corner of our society.

In the end, I am confident that the rule of law will prevail. Our duly elected president, Joe Biden, will take office on January 20, and history will remember this as a sad but unsuccessful attempt to destroy our Democratic Republic.
