My fellow Americans. I want to speak to you tonight. About the troubling events of the past week. As I have said he encouraged and of the US capitol. Struck at the very heart of our republic. It anchors and appalled millions of Americans. Across the political spectrum. I want to be very clear. I unequivocally. Condemned the violence. That we saw last week. Violence and vandalism have absolutely no place in our country and no place in our movement. Making America great again has always been about defending the rule of low. Supporting the men and women of law enforcement. And upholding our nation's most sacred traditions and that means. Mob violence goes against everything I believe in and everything our movement stands. No true supporter of mine could ever endorse. Political violence. No true supporter of mine could ever disrespect. Law enforcement. Or our great American flag. No true supporter mine could ever threaten or harass their fellow Americans.
