Washington, Jan 15 : Five days before laying down office, US President Donald Trump has appealed to his supporters not to resort

to any violence or vandalism and help ease tensions and calm tempers.

In a statement President Trump who lays down office on January 20, called upon all Americans that in the light of reports of more

demonstrations, he would call upon all Americans to ease tensions and calm tempers.

‘In the light of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind.

That is not what I stand for, and it is not what America stands for. I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers,’

President Trump said in the statement.

The statement follows intelligence reports that Trump’s supporters could resort to violence and cause breach of pace on the day of the

transfer of Power from outgoing President to President-elect Joe Biden. Nearly 20,000 National Guard will be deployed in Washington

and the White House to maintain peace during the ceremony on January 20. Security officials have warned about the threat of attacks

on Federal and State property during the ceremony. President-elect Joe Biden has also been briefed about the apprehensions and the

security drills.

This is the second time during the past three days that President Trump has called upon his supporters to maintain peace. On January 12

he said he wanted ‘no violence.’ ‘As far as this is concerned, we want no violence. Never violence. We want absolutely no

violence.’

Hundreds of Trump’s supporters had stormed the Capitol on January 6 where discussions were going on in the House of

Representatives on impeachment proceedings of Donald Trump. Four people died in the mayhem. President Trump has

called his impeachment as ‘ridiculous, very ridiculous and the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics.’

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has urged police chiefs across the United States to be on high alert ahead of

President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration ceremony.
