“I want him to resign. I want him out. He has caused enough damage,” Murkowski said during a 17-minute interview from Capitol office where thousands of Trump supporters were on Wednesday, breaking windows, doors and chairs and ransacking offices.

The report quoted her as adding: “I think he should leave. He said he’s not going to show up. He’s not going to appear at the inauguration. He hasn’t been focused on what is going on with COVID. He’s either golfing or he’s been inside the Oval Office fuming and throwing every single person who has been loyal and faithful to him under the bus, starting with the Vice President.”

“He doesn’t want to stay there. he only wants to stay there for the title. He only wants to there for his ego. He needs to get out. He needs to do the good thing, but I don’t think he’s capable of doing a good thing,” she added.

According to her, while “there have been many, many, many, many good Americans who came to Washington, D.C., because they felt strongly in support of this president,” Trump incited them to storm the Capitol after a speech near the Washington monument.
