President Trump on Thursday condemned Wednesday’s "heinous attack" on the Capitol by his supporters and called for peace.


"Like all Americans, I am outraged by the violence, lawlessness and mayhem," Trump said, adding that he had "immediately" deployed the National Guard.


He tweeted out the video shortly after his account was unlocked by Twitter.


On his verified Twitter account @realDonaldTrump he wrote; I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order – respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!


Twitter, along with Facebook, suspended the president for his initial response to the riot. "Emotions are high now, but tempers must be cooled and calm restored," the president said.


"We must get on with the business of America.


My campaign rigorously pursued every legal avenue to contest the election results. My only goal was to ensure the integrity of the vote."


"My focus now turns to ensuring a smooth, orderly and seamless transition," Trump said, acknowledging that "a new administration" would be inaugurated on Jan. 20.


"This moment now calls for healing and reconciliation."

 
  He noted the struggles ahead mitigating the coronavirus and rebuilding the economy, calling for unity. "It will require all of us working together. It will require a renewed emphasis on the civic values of patriotism, faith, charity, community and family."


"To the citizens of our country, serving as your president has been the honor of a lifetime," he continued. "To my incredible supporters I know you are disappointed ... our incredible journey is only just beginning."
