Trump refused to post a statement condemning the coup conspiracy but posted a video telling his mob that the election had been stolen but they should go home.

Trump said, "I know you are in pain, I know you are hurt. We have a choice that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election, everyone knows, especially the other side. But you have to go home now We need to have peace. We need to have law and order. We need to respect our great people and law and order. We don't want anyone to be hurt. It's a very difficult time. There has never been a time like this, where something like this happened, where they could take it away from all of us, me, you and our country. This was a fraudulent choice. We can't play into the hands of these people. We need to be at peace. So go home, us love you, you are very special. You saw what happened. You can see how others treat this so badly and so angry. I know how you feel. But go home and go home in peace. "
Trump is unable to denounce his supporters or tell the truth. The election was not stolen. There was no fraud. Instead of going on national television and telling coup participants to stop and go home. Trump poked them on and then interjected that they should go home.
Every second that Trump stays in office, democracy is in jeopardy. The president must be removed and prevented from ever holding federal office again.
