Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf has urged President Donald Trump to condemn Wednesday’s violence around the Capitol strongly.
Trump supporters stormed the parliament building, invaded and destroyed it.
The president has not yet turned against his supporters. He kept repeating that the election victory was stolen from him, for which there is no evidence at all.
Trump did promise an orderly transfer of power on Thursday if Biden is sworn in on January 20.
According to Wolf, the president only did this in the hope that cabinet members would not resign. Several White House and Cabinet employees have already left.
Wolf himself stays on because he wants to ensure a peaceful transfer of power and because of possible threats.
