And they are shouting let us then let us fifth led us there. I have been a truck rallies before I have been threatened before it is places. This seems very real this is out of control here there's an old Laura Schwartz this draft and their AAA. Thousands of people here. Who are not leaving. I call on president trump. To go on national television now. To fulfill his oath. And defend the constitution. And demand an end to this siege. Stormed the capital. To smash windows. Occupy offices.
