Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz defends Trump after storming of Capitol building

After a mob of demonstrators stormed the Capitol building on Wednesday interrupting a joint session of Congress to certify president-elect Joe Biden, Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz defended President Donald Trump, who called for protests to be “peaceful” before they turned violent. Gaetz also claimed facial recognition software detected people breaching the Capitol who weren’t pro-Trump, a claim that has not been verified.
