Donald Trump and Mike Pence meet, acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf steps down

NBC's Hallie Jackson reports that Vice President Pence and President Trump met to talk about last week's siege of the Capitol, and the way the vice president and his supporters feel he's been treated by the president. She also reports on acting DHS Sec. announcing his resignation. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO:
Department of Homeland Security Acting Secretary Chad Wolf said he is leaving the Trump administration on Monday.
Wolf’s decision comes four days after the president withdrew his nomination to head the Department of Homeland Security. The White House said that the president’s decision to withdraw Wolf’s nomination had nothing to do with his comments about the president.
Wolf had previously urged Trump to “strongly condemn the violence” that unfolded at the U.S. Capitol, calling the events “tragic and sickening.”
“This is unacceptable. These violent actions are unconscionable, and I implore the President and all elected officials to strongly condemn the violence that took place yesterday,” acting secretary Wolf wrote in a statement.
“Any appearance of inciting violence by an elected official goes against who we are as Americans. Every American is guaranteed the right to peacefully protest, but once those protests become violent, we should enforce our laws and bring those responsible to justice - regardless of political motivations,” he added.
Wolf also wrote that those who engaged in the rioting should be held accountable.

    LOL, can Pence be surprised ? Herr Trump has denigrated every person who has been fired or who has resigned or who has offered him criticism ,in his 4 VERY LONG years.....he has back stabbed all his exiting sycophants . this is who this egomaniac unstable POTUS is......Is anyone really surprised when a snake bites them ? i am guessing Pence's tongue was brown when he left the meeting. after all,...that was the real purpose of trump meeting with him.

    I'm independent so Im not fixated on who is the next president im okay with Biden or Trump; because the bible says, Romans 13:1" For there is no power but from God; the powers that be are ordained by God." But the way Pilosi has acted the last four years is like the Pharisees trying to crucify Jesus, Pilosi is the chief Pharisee trying to eliminate Trump. Doing this is just going to make folks more upset. Trump will be out of the white house in 8 days. Its time to move on. They should be voting how to mass produce the vaccine, how to distribute it, and eliminate COVID. We should be focusing on eliminating the COVID, ALL OUR EFFORTS 100% should be going into getting that vaccine mass produced and distributed!

    Jesus Christ saves from sin. Romans 3: 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Hebrews 9: 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: Isaiah 64: 6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. Revelation 21: 8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. Romans 5: 8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. John 3: 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 14: 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Romans 10: 9-10. That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Jesus said John 5: 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. 1John 5: 10-13 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. Ephesians 2: 8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Romans 8: 1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 1 Corinthians 15: 3-4 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 2 Corinthians 5: 21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. ....................................................................................

    DHS acting Secretary had to step down - he knows perfectly well that no excuse he could give would be able to justify how this planned riot was successfully carried out without the help of senior persons in key positions that supported Trump. The FBI is busy finding the "small fishes" in this riot, yet all those senators, politicians, news organizations such as Newsmax, OAN, FOX, have not been collected for their part in sedition and treasonous acts which enabled these terrorists their avenues.

    Pence, doesn't have anything to be upset about, pretty soon the real truth is going to be coming out. Pence turned on Trump, Sidney Powell turned on Trump and the fact of just who organized the rioters at the Capitol. I know I'm going to get a lot of slack about this, but believe me, when you see what I've seen, some may see the truth. But then there are those that are so blinded by hate and apparently want the U.S. to be destroyed and mostly likely if you seen it as a eye witness, your hate for a lie won't allow you to see something factual, even when it happens right in front of you.
