Former US President Barack Obama said that his successor in the White House, Donald Trump, instigated violence at the Capitol.
” History will remember today’s violence in the Capitol, prompted by the current president who continues to lie unfoundedly about the outcome of the election, as a moment of great shame for our nation,” Obama said.
He was preceded by another former president, George W. Bush, who called the intrusion of Trump supporters into the Capitol building a “painful” act that “breaks the heart.”
” This is how the election results are disputed in the banana republic, and not in our democratic republic,” he pointed out.
“I am appalled by the reckless behavior of some political leaders since the election and the lack of respect for our institutions, our traditions and our law enforcement, which could be seen today,” Bush said in a statement not mentioning Trump by name but clearly referring to him and other Republican officials, CNN reports.
