Chuck Schumer, expected to become Senate Majority Leader later this month following Democrats’ election victories in the Georgie Senate runoffs, says the events of today “will go down as one of the darkest days of recent American history, a final warning to our nation about the consequences of a demagogic president.
“These were rioters and insurrectionists, goons and thugs, domestic terrorists,” he says.
He says that “This temple to democracy was desecrated,” and that Trump supporters’ actions “will be a stain on our country not so easily washed away, the final terrible indelible legacy of the 45th president of the United States, undoubtedly our worst.”
