PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- President Trump issued a video statement on Twitter shortly after President-elect Joe Biden addressed the nation in response to Trump supporters storming the United States Capitol building.
"I know your pain, I know you're hurt. We had an election that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election, and everyone knows it, especially the other side," President Trump said. "But you have to go home now, we have to have peace. We have to have law and order and we have to respect our great people in law and order. We don't want anyone hurt."
