I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers. Thank You.” The statement, provided by the White House, came as the president remains unable to use his social media accounts following his encouragement of rioters last week. In a statement issued at around the same time as Trump’s, Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel urged peace. “Those who partook in the assault on our nation’s Capitol and those who continue to threaten violence should be found, held accountable, and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” McDaniel said. “Let me be clear: Anyone who has malicious intent is not welcome in Washington, D.C. or in any other state capitol.” » Subscribe to CNBC TV: » Subscribe to CNBC: » Subscribe to CNBC Classic: Turn to CNBC TV for the latest stock market news and analysis.
