– Following his second impeachment by the US House of Reps, President Trump has become a preacher of peace
– The US president who did not comment about the impeachment strongly dissociated himself from the recent attack on the US Capitol
– According to him, those who carried out the attack were not his supporters and they will all be punished according to the law
President Donald Trump has spoken after his historic second impeachment by the United States’ House of Representatives on Wednesday, January 13.
Yahoo News notes that the US president ignores his impeachment in the speech as he focused only on the violence at the US Capitol.
Trump said he condemned the violence, adding that such an incident does not have a place in the US and in his political movement.
He reiterated that his movement, Making America Great Again (MAGA), has always been about defending the rule of law.
“Whether you are on the right, or on the left, a Democrat, or a Republican, there is never a justification for violence– no excuses, no exceptions. America is a nation of laws.”
Trump vowed to bring to justice those who engaged in the violence at the US Capitol which eventually led to his second impeachment as he was accused of inciting them.
He called on those who believe in his political agenda to start thinking of ways to promote peace in the US.
The US president restated that he does not believe in mob violence and none of his true supporters will disrespect law enforcement, threaten or harass their fellow Americans.
He condemned his suspension on Twitter and other platforms, describing it as an assault on free speech.
“The efforts to censor, cancel, and blacklist our fellow citizens are wrong. And they are dangerous. What is needed now is for us to listen to one another, not to silence one another.”
Meanwhile, as the US House of Reps impeached President Trump again, many people have taken to social media to react to the development.
In some of the comments sighted by Legit.ng, the impeachment was met with diverse reactions from Americans and people from other nations as well.
While some people are openly jubilating the stain on the president’s legacy, others are not happy that Trump was made to hold such an embarrassing record of being the only president in the history of America to get himself impeached twice.
