(Meredith) -- President Donald Trump has issued an official statement to the nation addressing the actions and events that have taken place at the Capitol.

The release, which is on the White House's website, states: 

"In light of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind. That is not what I stand for, and it is not what America stands for. I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers. Thank You."

This is a developing story and will be updated.
