Atlanta, USA (CNN) – US President Donald Trump confirmed that the storming of the Congress building by his supporters came as a result of stripping what he described as “patriots” of winning the elections.

Trump said through his official newspaper on Twitter: “These events happen when the great patriots, who have been treated poorly and unfairly for a long time, are stripped of a crushing and holy victory in a brutal and illegal way,” he said.

The American president continued by telling his supporters: “Go to your homes with love and peace, and remember this day forever,” he said.

Earlier Wednesday, a number of Trump supporters stormed Congress and halted the approval process for the US election results.
