Trump has refused to do anything all day while the Capitol was overrun by its armed and violent supporters, but the White House has tried to recognize the National Guard’s efforts to stop the Trump-instigated insurrection:
At the direction of President @ realDonaldTrump, the National Guard is on the road together with other federal protection services.
We reiterate President Trump’s call against violence and about staying peaceful.

The FBI is there. Thanks to Ralph Northam, the governor of Virginia, the National Guard forces were already on their way.
The coup attempt has failed, and even if Trump still ignites the flames with false claims of a stolen election, Joe Biden’s victory will be confirmed and Donald Trump will be stepping down from his failed president for a term in exactly two weeks.
