Trump denounces violence after second impeachment

Washington: After the House of Representatives made history impeaching him for a second time, outgoing President Donald Trump has finally denounced unequivocally the January 6 Capitol violence by his supporters as he faces a Senate trial and legal action when he leaves office on January 20 noon.

Around the time, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi signed the articles of impeachment, Trump released a video in which he said, “I want to be very clear. I unequivocally condemn the violence that we saw last week”.

Banned from social media, his video was posted on a White House Twitter account.

“Those who engaged in the attacks last week will be brought to justice,” he said. “No true supporter of mine could ever threaten or harass their fellow Americans.”
