Twitter has prevented the tweet from being shared
President Donald Trump has urged his supporters to “go home”, but is also keeping up claims that the results of the November election were fraudulent.
He posted a video message to Twitter more than two hours after protesters began storming the Capitol as politicians convened for an extraordinary joint session to confirm the Electoral College results and President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.
President Trump opened his video by saying: “I know your pain. I know your hurt. But you have to go home now.”
He also went on to call the supporters “very special”. He said: “We can’t play into the hands of these people. We have to have peace. So go home. We love you. You’re very special.”
