Joe Biden has spoken out after Pro-Trump rioters rushed Capitol Hill in an attempt to block the certification of his presidential win.

“The scenes of chaos at the Capitol do not reflect true America, do not represent who we are. What we’re seeing is a small number of extremists dedicated to lawlessness,” he told Americans. “This is not dissent, it’s disorder, it’s chaos…and it must end now.”

The president-elect proceeded to call on Trump supporters to “pull back and allow the work of democracy to go forward,” while urging POTUS to use his platform and end the violence occurring in D.C.

“The words of a president matter, no matter how good or bad that president is. At their best, the words of a president can inspire,” Biden said. “At their worst, it can incite. Therefore, I call on President Trump to go on national television now to fulfill his oath, and defend the Constitution and demand an end to this siege.”

Biden said that he is “generally shocked and sad that our nation…has come to such a dark moment,” but told Americans that we will “endure” and “prevail” much like we have following past war and strife.

“I remain optimistic about the incredible opportunities. There’s never been anything we can’t do when we do it together,” he continued. “This God-awful display today is bringing home to every Democrat and Republican and Independent in the nation that we must step up…President Trump, step up.”

As REVOLT previously reported, advocates of Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. ahead of the certification of Biden’s presidential victory. The building is now on lockdown and a curfew has been put in place.

Amid the riots, the president urged his supporters to “stay peaceful.”

“I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence!” he tweeted. “Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order – respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!”
