GOP Rep. Waltz on Capitol Riots: ‘This Is Despicable’ and ‘a Sad Day’ for America

During an interview on the Fox News Channel on Wednesday, Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL) denounced the riots at the U.S. Capitol as “unacceptable and a sad day for the country.”

Waltz said, “I just want to say, Dana, this is despicable. This is not who we are as a country. We were debating this through debate and discussion…members were objecting to people’s concerns. But there is no place for violence. I’ve served in places overseas in Africa and Afghanistan and other [places], where violence is how we solve our disputes. Not here in America. … This is unacceptable and a sad day for the country.”
