Friday, January 8

President Donald Trump is in Washington, D.C., at the White House. No public events are on his agenda at this time.

Late on Thursday, President Trump addressed the nation following the events that took place at the Capitol this week. “I would like to begin by addressing the heinous attack on the United States’ Capitol.” He said, “Like all Americans, I am outraged by the violence, lawlessness, and mayhem. I immediately deployed the National Guard and federal law enforcement to secure the building and expel the intruders. America is and must always be a nation of law and order.”

He added, “The demonstrators who infiltrated the Capitol have defiled the American seat of democracy. To those who engaged in the acts of violence and destruction, you do not represent our country. And to those who broke the law, you will pay. We have just been through an intense election and emotions are high. But now tempers must be cooled and calm restored. We must get on with the business of America.”

The president also addressed the Electoral College results and stated, “Now Congress has certified the results. A new administration will be inaugurated on January 20th. My focus now turns to ensuring a smooth, orderly, and seamless transition of power. This moment calls for healing and reconciliation.”

He concluded the address by thanking the many that have supported him throughout his time in office, “To the citizens of our country, serving as your president has been the honor of my lifetime.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his administration as they seek to unite the nation.
  • For law enforcement officers across the nation working to keep American’s safe.
  • For God to work in the hearts of the leaders and citizens of the United States.
