Donald Trump has returned to social media on the White House’s official account, and appeared in a video that condemned the attack on Capitol which happened last week.
“I want to be very clear: I unequivocally condemn the violence that we saw last week,” the 74-year-old sitting President of the United States said.
He continued on, saying that he was “shocked and deeply saddened by the calamity” and “no true supporter” of his “could ever endorse political violence.”
The video comes just hours after he was impeached for the second time by the House for his actions leading up to the event that sent lawmakers into a lockdown situation.

Trump made history as the only President to be impeached twice.
After the vote, the Senate will be conducting a trial, and that is expected to take place after he leaves office.
