Ivanka Trump deleted a tweet after the Twitterati took her to task for describing her father's supporters who stormed the Capitol as "American Patriots." 

Trump called on the armed protesters to stand down about a half-hour after President Trump first asked the crowd to respect the Capitol police.

"Please support our Capitol Police and Law Enforcement," the president tweeted. "They are truly on the side of our Country. Stay peaceful!"

Trump piggybacked on her father's tweet, pleading for a stop to the violence. She referred to the rioters as "American Patriots." The demonstrators breached both chambers, the House and the Senate, which were in session to count the electoral votes that would seal Joe Biden's presidential victory. Lawmakers were taken to secure locations.

Her description of the rioters, many carrying weapons and plexiglass shields, touched off a firestorm on Twitter. 

The pushback was so strong that Trump deleted her tweet. Then, she posted a tweet to clarify her first one. She backpedaled, telling followers that she meant peaceful protests are patriotic, not rioters.  

Donald Trump Jr. also took to Twitter, first telling followers: @realdonaldtrump has the people!" Then, "This is wrong and not who we are. Be peaceful and use your 1st Amendment rights, but don’t start acting like the other side. We have a country to save and this doesn’t help anyone."

About 1:00 p.m. local time, hundreds of protestors started pushing down barriers set up around the Capitol. More than an hourlater, the demonstrators breached the building, CNN reported. 

There’s been a mandatory curfew set in place by Mayor Muriel Bowser that starts at 6:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday and will end on Thursday at 6:00 a.m. ET.

A report in The Hill claimed that Ivanka Trump was looking to take over the White House office space that the first lady would usually occupy. We have no idea how his wife Melania felt about this, but can definitely take a few guesses! Imagine if his daughter were the First Lady instead – it seems like that’s his dream come true.
