WASHINGTON (KLKN) — Following rumors of upcoming pro-Trump protests, President Donald Trump addresses his supporters directly.

In a statement released a week after the violent riots at the U.S. Capitol, the President denounces destructive action and asks for peace.

“In light of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind. That is not what I stand for, and it is not what America stands for. I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers.”
