U.S. President-elect Joe Biden weighed in on the emerging insurrection by Trump supporters on The Capitol in Washington D.C. and asked him to go on TV now and stop it.
A pained Biden was speaking from Wilmington, Delaware.
He said he was shocked and sad the attack on the capitol could be happening.
“At this hour, our democracy is under unprecedented assault, unlike anything we’ve seen in modern times. An assault on the citadel of liberty: the capitol itself,” Biden said.
“It borders on sedition and it must end now. I call on this mob to pull back and allow the work of democracy to go forward,” he added.
He then called on Trump to face the nation and “demand an end to this siege.”
”It’s not protest; it’s insurrection,” Biden pointed out.
“President Trump, step up”, he said.
