He added: ‘Hello Mr. President, we love you. Keep doing what you’re doing. We’re with you. Until next time, in God we trust.’
In a later Facebook post Saccone said: ‘I see some people are twisting the peaceful protest into something else. Everyone from our group was involved in peaceful, first amendment assembly. It was part of the metaphor to storm the castle so to speak.
‘People that I heard breached some barricades to reach the steps to wave flags. Some carried a huge American flag up the steps which drew a loud roar of approval from the crowd. No one I no of intended or condones any violence unlike those on the left.’
“Did not see any violence but did see some smoke what some said was tear gas being sprayed at people.”
‘I cannot imagine anyone being shot for a trespass. The punishment for trespass is not death. My heart goes out to the young lady who was shot. Again, these were hundreds of thousands of peaceful protestors, especially those from Pa. What do you think?’
