Michigan US senator Debbie Stabenow says her experience inside the US capitol building which was stormed by protestors Wednesday, seemed like something out of a movie. She says they weren’t really aware what was happening outside until they were ushered off the senate floor through a tunnel and into a different building on the capitol complex.

Now the Michigan U S senator says she is very concerned about the divisions in the country based on what she saw being done by protestors.

"One of the images is of a united states flag flying over the US capitol that was brought down and they replaced it with a flag that says trump and you know what that is not America, we’re not a dictatorship," said Stabenow.

Senator Stabenow says we’ve got work to do and we need to be able to come together and while we still disagree realize that we are not enemies.
