The outgoing President Trump’s attempted coup was despicable. Today it got violent. If blood is spilled, it is in his hands. These actions, fueled by lies and wild conspiracy theories advocated by President Trump, must be clearly condemned by every corner of our society.
Ultimately, I am confident that the rule of law will prevail. Joe Biden, our duly elected president, will take office on January 20th, and history will remember this sad but unsuccessful attempt to destroy our democratic republic.
