More Americans place blame for last evenings insurrectionist behavior squarely at the feet of US President Donald Trump.
President and CEO of Fair Vote, Rob Richie, says the mob which stormed the Capitol was fueled by the President’s Conspiracy.
US President Donald Trump finally committed to an orderly transition of power this morning minutes after Congress confirmed President-elect Joe Biden’s election win.
The striking reversal came hours after a violent mob of the president’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol, and followed weeks of Trump and his allies fighting the election results.
Mr. Richie says the country has a difficult path ahead after the outgoing Commander in Chief.
Meanwhile, Mayor of New Carrolton in Maryland, Washington, Jamaican Phelecia Nembhard, says the current President must go immediately.

And, Political Economist at the University of Cambridge and a Senior Fellow at the Johannesburg Institute for Advanced Study, Dr. John Rapley, suggests the outgoing President’s political career is essentially over.
He says Mr. Trump has become a political liability for the Republican Party.
Dr. Rapley argues that President Trump’s stranglehold on the party might be weakening.
He says there needs to be serious consequences for what unfolded last evening.
