US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin says the attack on the US Capitol Building was “unacceptable” and calls for Americans to respect the “democratic process.”

Mnuchin makes his comments in Jerusalem during a visit to Israel following the signing of the Abraham Accords with Sudan, which mark Khartoum’s intentions to normalize ties with Jerusalem.

“The violence that occurred last night at the Capitol in Washington, DC, was completely unacceptable. Now is the time for our nation to come together as one and to respect the democratic process in the US,” he says.
