WASHINGTON DC — President Trump addressed the protesters flooding the Capitol Building today, asking them to "go home, go home in peace."

He took the time to reiterate his claims of election fraud and told protesters "We love you, you're very special."

Previous tweets from the president ranged from urging protesters to refrain from violence, to criticizing Vice President Pence, to rapidly tweeting about election fraud.
