Priti Patel says Trump’s speech directly caused the Capitol Hill siege
“He mainly has made quite a lot of feedback yesterday that helped gas that violence and he did not really do something to de-escalate that in any way. what we have seen is totally unacceptable. His feedback straight led to the violence, and to this point, he has did not condemn that violence and that’s utterly flawed,” she informed the BBC.
Patel, the primary Indian-origin girl to carry the submit, stated that the scenes had been “terrible past phrases”.
No less than 4 individuals, together with a lady, had been killed as protesters went on a rampage within the US Congress constructing, quickly after Trump, addressing a rally of his die-hard supporters, urged them to march to the Capitol to register their protests and oppose the electoral “fraud” within the presidential elections.
The US “wants to maneuver on” and have the transition of energy from Trump to Biden, Patel added.
Earlier, Prime Minister Boris Johnson had condemned the “disgraceful scenes” and referred to it as a “peaceable and orderly switch of energy”.
