Vice President Mike Pence took to Twitter to denounce the violence and chaos in the U.S. Capitol building on Wednesday, and demanded that it “stop now” and the protestors “immediately leave the [Capitol] building.” He also warned that the attack “will not be tolerated.”
“The violence and destruction taking place at the US Capitol Must Stop and it Must Stop Now,” Pence said. “Anyone involved must respect Law Enforcement officers and immediately leave the building.”
Peaceful protest is the right of every American but this attack on our Capitol will not be tolerated and those involved will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

“Peaceful protest is the right of every American but this attack on our Capitol will not be tolerated and those involved will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” he added.
The Vice President was evacuated earlier in the day as protestors “breached” the Capitol building.
President Donald Trump tweeted earlier in the day, “Please support our Capitol Police and Law Enforcement. They are truly on the side of our Country. Stay peaceful!”
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!
