Amid Trump supporters storming the U.S. Capitol and violently clashing with Capitol Police Wednesday, and following Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory, President Donald Trump reacted on Twitter to the ongoing situation.

The violence has caused the Capitol to enter lockdown for the safety of lawmakers and staffers, according to multiple reports.

“Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify,” Trump tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “USA demands the truth!”

Prior to the president’s pair of tweets, his eldest son Donald Trump Jr. condemned the violence.

“This is wrong and not who we are. Be peaceful and use your 1st Amendment rights, but don’t start acting like the other side,” Trump Jr. posted, retweeting a video of protesters clashing with police. “We have a country to save and this doesn’t help anyone.”

As the situation started to rapidly develop, Republican politicians denounced the actions of Trump’s supporters. Here is what some of them have stated:

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
