The head of the US Republican Party in Israel condemns the violent storming of the US Capitol by Trump supporters.

“I’m ashamed tonight. I don’t like seeing these pictures, this has nothing to do with the Republican Party and our values,” Mark Zell tells Army Radio.

Zell says that he still supports Trump and agrees with the US president’s unfounded claim that the election was stolen.

“What is happening today doesn’t reflect his actions,” Zell says of Trump.
