Действующий президент США Дональд Трамп призвал американцев и «Большую четверку» (Big Tech, общее название для компаний Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple) не допускать какого-либо насилия и помочь ослабить напряженность среди общественности. Об этом сообщил телеканал Fox News.
С таким обращением глава государства выступил после того, как стало известно, что палата представителей США в среду, 13 января, приступила к рассмотрению вопроса об импичменте Трампу. В это связи в конгресс было направлено дополнительно более 6 тысяч гвардейцев.
«В свете сообщений о новых демонстрациях, я призываю не допускать насилия, нарушений закона и вандализма любого рода», — заявил президент.
Трамп призвал всех американцев помочь ослабить напряженность среди общества и успокоить людей.
По словам советника главы государства, на которого ссылается телеканал, лидер страны также просит крупные технологические компании присоединиться к его усилиям.
Советник также добавил, что соответствующее заявление Трампа будет распространено в виде электронного письма пресс-службы Белого дома. Затем Белый дом попытается опубликовать этот текст во всех официальных аккаунтах президента в социальных сетях.
6 января сторонники действующего президента США Дональда Трампа штурмовали здание Конгресса США, прервав заседание, на котором парламент должен был утвердить итоги минувших выборов.
В результате произошедшего погибли пять человек. После массовых беспорядков в Вашингтоне глава комитета палаты представителей по судебным делам Джерри Надлер предложил объявить импичмент Трампу в упрощенном порядке.

Blake Shelton is standing by his controversial new tune Minimum Wage, after facing a barrage of backlash and being accused of being 'tone-deaf.'
The 44-year-old country star's song lyric in question is: 'Girl, lookin' at you lookin' at me that way/ Can make a man feel rich on minimum wage.'
Many people slammed the song because of the lyric being sung by Blake, rumored to be worth around $100million, during the COVID-19 pandemic with many Americans without a job and countless business shut down.
Speaking to CMT Shelton said: 'We’re at a point now where it doesn’t even deserve a response. That’s why I didn’t come out initially and say anything, because they’re not entitled to a response from me. This is absolutely ridiculous.'
'I just feel like these days, there are people out there who don’t want to know the truth,' he added to CMT.
'They just want to hear what they want to hear, and they want to pick a fight.'
'No matter what your intention is, no matter what the truth is, they want it to be something that they can be upset about so that they can get on social media and try to grab a headline.'
He went on: 'Wow, I guess I just I’ve missed something here. Whatever this backlash is is just four or five people that probably don’t know anything about country music.'
The song is about his love for fiancee Gwen Stefani; her brother Todd actually directed the video for the song as well.
One user took to Twitter and wrote: 'The irony of listening to a millionaire Blake Shelton singing about "love on minimum wage" at the end of 2020 might be lost on its target audience.'
Another said: 'Does anyone else find Blake Shelton's "Minimum Wage" song to be incredibly tone deaf to our country's current state?'
One Twitter user wrote: 'What!? @blakeshelton is #MinimumWage even for real? Yes of course @gwenstefani can make a dude feel rich cuz she's a millionaire. Are you working at the Home Depot now or something? Wanna pay my rent?'
A Twitter user said 'just when we thought #2020 couldn't get any worse, @BlakeShelton releases his new single...' and another noted that Blake 'singing about #minimumwage when' he has a 'net worth of $100 million (as does Gwen Stefani) shows an arrogant disrespect for millions of underpaid workers who lost jobs and struggle to feed families while he jets around the country saying "all you need is love."
Others defended the star and slammed the cancel culture.
One person wrote: 'People hating on #BlakeShelton for #MininumWage are idiots looking for reasons to be offended. First, metaphor. Second, he's in love. Third, think he was born with 100 million dollars?!'
Another said that 'everybody butthurt at Blake Shelton listens to and supports everything Cardi B does and says lol' while one person just gushed about the tune.
Minimum Wage is about a woman's love as money, in the sense that it makes him feel rich even on a minimum wage.
Blake sings: 'Girl, your love is money, your love is money/ Yeah, your love can make a man feel rich on minimum wage/Girl, your love is money, your love is money/Yeah, your love can make a man feel rich on minimum wage.'
The song opens with: 'Yeah, I met you 'fore anyone knew my name/Playin' for pennies on the dive bar stage/Split an all-star special on our first date in Waffle House booth/Your daddy was cryin' when he gave you away/'Cause all those country song I played/They didn't come with a 401K/Buy hey, I had you.'
Blake and his longtime love Gwen, 51, announced their engagement on October 27, 2020.
They reportedly split at the beginning of 2020.
But Jason Sudeikis isn't giving up hope to reconcile with Olivia Wilde as US Weekly reported he's 'desperate' to win her back.
The 45-year-old actor is optimistic that Olivia's new relationship with Harry Styles is 'just a phase' and the couple can get back together to 'repair their family.'
Olivia and Jason reportedly split at the beginning of the year, but sources claimed their engagement actually ended in November.
Shortly after the news of their split, Olivia was spotted holding hands with Harry at his manager's wedding in Montecito, California.
'Jason's had no option but to step back and let Olivia do her thing, but he [has his fingers crossed] that this is just a phase and that Olivia will snap out of it or that Harry will get bored and move on before too long,' an insider told US.
'He's desperate to' win Wilde back so that they can 'repair their family.'
The Ted Lasso star and Wilde first met in 2011 and were engaged in 2012. They have two children together: Daisy, four, and Otis, six.
Sources within the Styles camp insist the Watermelon Sugar singer 'did not break up an engagement.'
Sudeikis insiders insisted that it happened 'after she had already gotten close to Harry' on the set of their upcoming movie, Don't Worry Darling.
'Whether Harry knows it or not, he was a reason for the split,' the Sudeikis source told US.
Insiders recently claimed the actress, 36, and the comedian, 45, argued over her 'increasingly close' bond with her colleague-turned-lover, 26, as they exchanged flirty messages while he shot scenes on the new film she is directing late last year.
House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy called on President Donald Trump to “accept his share of responsibility” for the violence that overtook the U.S. Capitol last week and urged Republicans to accept that Joe Biden is the next leader of the nation.
“The president bears responsibility for Wednesday's attack on Congress by mob rioters,” McCarthy said on the House floor. “He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding. These facts require immediate action by President Trump."
McCarthy’s public comments, which echo what he told his caucus earlier this week, came as he denounced the effort to impeach Trump for the second time.
McCarthy instead argued for Trump to be censured for his actions in the lead-up to and in the aftermath of the riot led by a pro-Trump mob. Democrats have dismissed such a move as insufficient given the gravity of the insurrection.
McCarthy said that the outgoing president needs to “accept his share of responsibility, quell the brewing unrest and ensure President-Elect Joe Biden is able to successfully begin his term.”
The top House Republican also took members of his own party to task for baselessly speculating that the mob was driven by antifa or other leftist agitators rather than grapple with the reality that it was Trump supporters who laid siege to the Capitol and killed at least one police officer.
“Some say the riots were caused by antifa. There is absolutely no evidence of that,” McCarthy said. “Conservatives should be the first to say so.”
McCarthy’s floor speech came just minutes after Rep. Matt Gaetz, who promoted the theory shortly after the rioters were removed from the Capitol building last week, condemned Democrats’ impeachment campaign.
McCarthy also made clear that Biden is the rightful next president, distancing himself from the continued effort by Trump and others to delegitimize the president-elect’s electoral victory, and he added that it is “not the American way.”
“Let's be clear, Joe Biden will be sworn in as president of the United States in one week because he won the election,” he said.
The Republican leader is facing a deeply divided caucus that has begun to lash out at one another over the president's imminent impeachment, with top Trump defenders like Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) attempting to remove Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) — the highest-ranking House Republican backing the effort — from her leadership post as a result of reprimanding Trump in his waning days in office.
