LAS VEGA (KLAS) — The White House has issued a statement calling for no violence, lawbreaking or vandalism of any kind in upcoming demonstrations.

This call for Americans to “ease tensions and calm tempers” comes amid reports of potential violence at state capitols and in Washington D.C. ahead and during the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden.

CBS political correspondent Ed O’Keefe posted the president’s statement on Twitter.

This statement comes exactly one week after President Trump was accused of inciting last week’s Capitol takeover by a pro-Trump mob. Trump is now facing a second impeachment.
