He said Trump betrayed and misled millions with claims of "stolen election," and encouraged loyalists to "fight like hell," which enticed violence at the U.S. Capitol building in Washington D.C. on Jan. 6.
"This vote is not a victory. It isn't a victory for my party, and it isn't the victory the Democrats might think it is. I'm not sure it is a victory for our country. But it is a call to action for us to reflect on these events and seek ways to correct them," Meijer said in a written statement.
