    Pleased to see Johnson has condemned it along with other UK politicians.Hope to hear more condemnation though no doubt Trump will twist it.
    I would think that the leaders in every democratic country will. I heard a suggestion that Pence could invoke the 25th Amendment and boot Trump out. It probably won't happen but I'd love to see Trump brought to book in some way for this.

    Now Twitter has stopped this being replied to or re-tweeted, because of the risk of violence.

    What has it come to, that a US President's tweets have to be censored!!!
    Why? Because DT tells these rioters that he loves them and that they are very special people. I find it hard to believe that so few people have been arrested. When people were protesting in front of the WHITE HOUSE IN June they were all moved off with tear gas and heavy handed tactics by the police so DT could go across the plaza for his photo op in front of the boarded up church. I hope Trump is led out of the White House in handcuffs! 😡

    I was watching CNN and the beginning of the legislative procedures in the Capitol and Ted Cruz had just started his usual inane spiel, so I changed channel. And I came back to chaos, nutters smashing windows and invading the building and someone even sitting in the chair Mike Pence had used! Apparently the earlier request for the National Guard had been refused and so security had been overwhelmed!

    There’s been a lot of condemnation of Trump’s actions and his weak call for the protestors to leave. What a disgrace he is!

    I am not surprised but am shocked. This person is supposed to be the leader of the free world.
    If someone like Mugabe was behaving like this the world would condemn him.Where are Western leaders in all this?
    Truly disgraceful.

    People have already been shot at ! What is Trump doing? He is watching this on TV and letting his press secretary say that DT has called out the National guard. What DT wants is nothing short of civil war. I’m afraid the 25th amendment needs to be invoked now. He is not fit for office.

    i have just witnessed the most shocking aspect of the whole US presidential election. Trump supporters have just invaded the Capitol Building after protesting outside at the behest of President Trump. Police have just had to deploy teargas inside the rotunda of the Capitol and members of Congress and their staff members have been told to wear gas masks. I am appalled by this and it makes me ashamed to be an American. Trump has basically ordered his flock of sheep to stage a coup and they are obeying him. This horrible man will have yet more blood on his hands by tomorrow morning.

    I am horrified. Helen
    Be horrified but don't be ashamed. None of the Americans I have ever known were remotely like Trump or the buffoons who worship and enable him. What's happening is a disgrace and I hope, and maybe it's a forlorn hope, that those politicians who intended to disrupt the proceedings will now see how stupid they've been.

    There has now been an armed confrontation in the Capitol. Congress members have been told to don their gas masks. As my friend says if it had been BLM protestors doing this they would have been gunned down.
