Vice President Mike Pence is denouncing the rioters’ violence after they stormed The Capitol on Wednesday (January 6) in Washington, DC.
Pence shared a message to the Trump supporters after he returned to Congress on Wednesday night following the riots at the Capitol building earlier in the day.
“You did not win. Violence never wins,” Pence said as he resumed the session. “Freedom wins. And this is still the people’s house. As we reconvene in this chamber, the world will again witness the resilience and strength of our democracy.”
“For even in the wake of unprecedented violence and vandalism at this Capitol, the elected representatives of the people of the United States have assembled again on the very same day to support and defend the Constitution of the United States…Let’s get back to work,” Pence concluded.
Pence‘s message against the Trump supporters that rioted the Capitol comes after the president turned on his VP for not using his powers to overturn the election in his favor.
