President Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to ask his supporters to “stay peaceful” after they stormed the U.S. Capitol Building and violently clashed with police in an effort to prevent President-elect Joe Biden's certification.

Vice President Pence, who was within the Capitol when the building was breached, tweeted for an end to violence and for people to respect law enforcement and leave the building.

“The violence and destruction happening at the US Capitol Must Stop and it Must Stop Now. Anyone involved must respect enforcement officers and immediately leave the building,” Pence tweeted.

He continued: “Peaceful protest is the right of each American but this attack on our Capitol won't be tolerated and people involved are going to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

Trump also shared a video urging his supporters to stand down;

This was a fraudulent election, but we can’t play into the hands of those people."he said
