World news – Florida lawmakers weigh on the Capitol coup



As we followed events in Washington DC with horror, we reported to Florida’s elected officials in the Capitol Building.

The United States Senators and Representatives gathered in chambers today to approve the results of the November election. Donald Trump spoke against these results at a rally and swore that « we will never admit ».

At the time of writing, all of our elected lawmakers were safe.

Senator Marco Rubio called on the President to help restore order. He did not admit, however, that the president had fueled the unrest from the start.

There is nothing patriotic about what happens on Capitol Hill. This is 3rd world style anti-American anarchy.

Mr President @realDonaldTrump the men & law enforcement women are under attack. It is important that you help restore order by sending resources to assist the police and asking those who do to step back.

I want to wish a very happy Hispanic family in FL & around the world #ThreeKingsDay wish! May God bless you & your loved ones. ¡Quiero desearle a todas las familias hispanas en la Florida y alrededor del mundo un feliz Día de los Tres Reyes! Que Dios bendiga a cada familia.

I was in the house chamber. Then we were locked down, then evacuated, and now we’re safe. We remain determined to defend our democracy today.

Thank you to the Capitol Police officers who protect us and our institutions every day. And thanks to all of the law enforcement agencies who work to keep the people of DC safe.
