Here at Grace and Truth Leadership we remain prayerful and actively engaged in current affairs: last week two Georgia Democrats prevailed and flip the Senate with imminent runoff wins.
Sadly, last week as Congress was getting ready to confirm the results of the Electoral College amid objections by several Republican members. Coronavirus deaths in the US were rocketing to a new all-time high.
All of this happened on January 6th, around midday, a violent mob of Trump supporters, instigated by the President himself, breached the US Capitol.
Sending politicians into hiding and sparking hours of chaos, violence and insurrection on what is sure to go down as one of the darkest days in American political history.
It’s been reported one woman died after being shot on Capitol grounds, and three other people died following medical emergencies during the riot.
The Capitol was finally cleared at 5:40 p.m. ET, and all in all, 52 people were arrested.
Elsewhere across the nation, smaller but similar scenes unfolded, including in front of Georgia’s capitol building and the governor’s mansion in Washington state.
The President’s antagonistic response: It took President Trump hours to respond to domestic terrorism.
In tweets and a video message, the President offered only indifferent admonition and repeated some of the baseless claims that motivated the protests in the first place.
“We love you,” he said to rioters in the video. “You’re very special.” The video and some of his tweets were taken down by Twitter and Facebook in what the companies said was an attempt to prevent more violence.
Both platforms temporarily blocked Trump’s accounts.
