Riots broke out in the Capitol on Wednesday, as Pro-Trump supporters protested the results of the recently-concluded national elections. The protests turned violent, which resulted in some ugly scenes in the nation's capital. Houston Rockets point guard John Wall, who spent the majority of his career with the Washington Wizards, was asked to share his reaction to the violence, and unsurprisingly, the former All-Star was at a loss for words.

Here is Wall's statement on the riots, courtesy of ClutchPoints on Twitter:

Wednesday was a sad day for the United States, as no less than four individuals were proclaimed dead as a result of the violence that ensued.

Wall, who spent the first nine years of his career with D.C. after the Wizards selected him first overall in the 2010 NBA Draft, recently made the move to Houston following an offseason blockbuster trade involving Russell Westbrook. Having called the Capital his home for many years, Wall is no stranger to the political sphere in Washington. However, it is not a surprise that even he was taken aback by the tragic events that went down on Wednesday.

John Wall spent the entirety of the 2019-20 season rehabbing from an Achilles injury. The five-time All-Star finally made his debut for the Rockets earlier and the season, and has since suited up for four games for his new squad. Coming into Wednesday's 107-114 loss to the Indiana Pacers, the 30-year-old has put up impressive averages of 21.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, 6.3 assists, a.3 steals, and 1.0 blocks, while also connecting on a career-high 1.7 triples per game.
