Trump said it was time for Americans to heal and reconcile.

The president also described the invasion of Capitol Hill by protesters as a heinous attack.

He said:

Like all Americans, I am outraged by the violence, lawlessness and mayhem.”

Trump claimed that he reacted to the violence by deploying the national guard and federal law enforcement to secure the building and expel the intruders.

The president said those responsible for the violence will pay.

He said:

“America is and must always be a nation of law and order. The demonstrators who infiltrated the Capitol have defiled the seat of American democracy.

“To those who engage in the acts of violence and destruction. You do not represent our country. And to those who broke the law, you will.”
