OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

President Trump said he wants “no violence,” according to Fox News.

“We want no violence, and on the impeachment, it is a continuation of the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics,” Trump said, calling it “ridiculous” and saying it is “causing tremendous anger.”

“I want no violence,” Trump said again before boarding Marine One.

From Fox News:

House Democrats on Monday introduced an article of impeachment against the president over the riots, arguing he incited “insurrection.” The riot came after the president spoke at a rally last Wednesday, telling supporters that he would “never concede.” Congress later returned and certified the Electoral College vote early Thursday, formally giving Biden his presidential victory.
