LOS ANGELES, Jan. 6 (Xinhua) -- California Governor Gavin Newsom on Wednesday called on U.S. President Donald Trump to step up in order to calm down the situation and guarantee a peaceful transition of power.

"Trump must call for an end to this escalating situation, acknowledge the will of the people to bring President-Elect Biden to the White House and move immediately to a peaceful transition of power," the governor said in a statement, condemning the mob who took over the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday.

He made the remarks after protesters supporting outgoing President Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday afternoon, forcing proceedings to count Electoral College votes cast in the 2020 presidential election to halt.

"The people of California have spoken, and our congressional delegation should never have to fear for their lives to represent Californians. We are concerned for the safety of California's congressional delegation and U.S. Capitol staff, and are reaching out to offer support in every way possible." the statement read. Enditem
