“The best way for our country,” Toomey said on NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” is “for the president to resign and go away as soon as possible. I acknowledge that may not be likely but that would be best.”

Toomey said that apart from Trump’s comments surrounding the riots, the president’s conduct since he lost his re-election bid in November has been “madness.”

“After the election, he took this to an entirely different place, orders of magnitude different,” Toomey said. “Recruiting thousands of Americans from around the country to descend on the Capitol, promising a ‘wild ride’ and inciting them to attack the Capitol building so as to prevent the constitutional responsibility of the vice president and the Congress to complete the peaceful transfer of power.”
