Correa Releases Statement On Assault On United States Capitol

Rep. Lou Correa: "Trump Is A Dictator"

Washington DC - Today, Congressmen Lou Correa (D-CA) released the following statement regarding the assault on the United States Capitol:

"President Trump has proven today that he is a Dictator. He has incited American citizens to storm the US Capitol in the middle of fulfilling our job of certifying the 2020 presidential election results.

"People may get hurt, and some may die because Trump refuses to let go of the presidency. He is an embarrassment to this country.

"Today Members of the House and Senate engaged in a democratic debate between Republicans and Democrats as defined by our Constitution. The President took it upon himself to incite Americans with lies and fake charges of fraud.

"But nothing will stop us from fulfilling our Constitution duty. We will resume the process of certifying this election, and Joe Biden will become the 46th President of the United States."


Rep. Lou Correa represents California’s 46th Congressional District. He serves as Chair of the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Transportation and Maritime Security, and as the Vice Chair of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet. Read more here.
