​President Trump followed up the video message he released urging his supporters to “go home in peace” with another posting telling the “great patriots” to “Remember this day forever!”

“These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long. Go home with love & in peace. Remember this day forever!,” he posted on his Twitter account.

It came about an hour after he released a video message to his supporters who stormed the US Capitol as a joint-session of Congress prepared to certify the Electoral College vote.

“I know how you feel, but go home and go home in peace. I know you’re in pain. I know you’re hurt,” Trump said in the one minute video address.

Trump continued to claim he lost to President-elect Joe Biden because of voter fraud.

“We had an election that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election, and everyone knows it, especially the other side. But you have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order. We have to respect our great people in law and order. We don’t want anybody hurt,” he said.

Both tweets were flagged by Twitter.

The label said: “This claim of election fraud is disputed, and this Tweet can’t be replied to, retweeted, or liked due to a risk of violence.”
