Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel expressed sadness and anger at the scenes of pro-Trump rioters storming the US Capitol on Wednesday.

"A basic rule of democracy is after the election there are winners and losers," Merkel said, adding,

"I regret very much that President Trump did not admit defeat in November and again yesterday."

Merkel is one of many world leaders who condemned Wednesday's violence around the US Capitol.

She made her comments during a virtual meeting with German conservative parties this morning, saying:



However, Merkel expressed optimism that US lawmakers went back to work and certified Joe Biden's Electoral College win, calling it "a sign of hope."

"It is also certain with the confirmation of the election victory of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris that the United States of America will open a new chapter of the democracy in less than two weeks, as it is supposed to happen," she added
世界上各国领导人,只有默克尔让我尊敬,是唯一有自尊,有底线,有胆略,有担当的人。

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said today this week's attack on Capitol Hill was a "shocking" event that was "incited" by President Donald Trump.

"What we witnessed was an assault on democracy by violent rioters, incited by the current president and other politicians," he said during an address outside his residence at Rideau Cottage.

"As shocking, deeply disturbing, and frankly saddening as that event remains, we have also seen this week that democracy is resilient in America, our closest ally and neighbour. Violence has no place in our societies, and extremists will not succeed in overruling the will of the people."

Trudeau said the words used by political leaders have a direct impact on individuals' behaviour and institutions, adding that everyone heard what the president said before the "horrific" events unfolded.

During a rally in Washington on Wednesday, Trump encouraged thousands of supporters to march to the Capitol to protest the pending certification of the electoral college vote.

"We will stop the steal," he told the crowd.

A mob of rioters then invaded the Capitol building, prompting members of Congress and staffers to hide for their own safety.

Trump won't retract claims of rigged election​


After expressions of outrage by Democrats and many Republicans, and as calls to remove him from office mounted, Trump finally denounced Wednesday's violence that left five people dead, including a police officer.

In a video released late Thursday, he called the attack "heinous" and promised a smooth and orderly transition of power later this month. He did not, however, take back his claim that the election was fraudulent.

Trudeau said the events in the U.S. are a reminder that democracy is not "automatic" and that no one should take it for granted in this country.

"We know that, even as we watch with extreme concern everything unfolding in the United States over these past few days ... we are not immune to that in Canada," he said.

'The choices we make ... have consequences'​


"We have a responsibility as Canadians to continue to lead with respect, to engage substantially with different points of view and to never resort to violence as a way of impacting public discourse. That is something that Canadians have recommitted to across the country over these past days and we will continue to be extremely vigilant to remember that the choices we make as leaders, as politicians, have consequences."

Other world leaders also have called out Trump for provoking this week's violence.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the outgoing president "stoked uncertainties" about the election outcome, creating an atmosphere that made the siege possible.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Trump "encouraged" people to storm the Capitol and said his continued efforts to cast doubt on a free and fair election were "completely wrong."
