"President-elect Joe Biden on Wednesday demanded that President Donald Trump go on national TV to call off the rioters who have stormed the U.S. Capitol.
'I call on this mob to pull back and allow the work of the democracy to go forward,' Biden said as armed rioters caused the Capitol to go into lockdown. 'The words of a president matter, no matter how good or bad that president is.'"
"The president took over two hours to tell his supporters to stand down in a brief Twitter video.
In his Twitter statement, Trump lauded the rioters as 'special,' telling them that 'we love you.' He also doubled down on his false claims that the election was stolen from him before asking rioters to go home. He followed up with another tweet: 'These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long. Go home with love & in peace. Remember this day forever!'" Politico
