Illinois Governor JB Prizker (D-IL) issued the following statement Wednesday:
“There is no doubt in my mind that his efforts to encourage a coup represent high treason to this democracy, our Constitution and all Americans,” Prizker says.
“This violence is the natural conclusion of Donald Trump’s efforts to unleash the forces of hate and divide our nation,” he adds “It must end.”
I don’t make a statement like this lightly: Two weeks is too long for Donald Trump to remain in office, where he can continue to incite more untold violence.
