Freshman GOP Rep. Mace: Trump's 'Entire Legacy Was Wiped Out'

President Donald Trump's "entire legacy was wiped out" with the violence in the halls of the nation's Capitol building, freshman GOP Rep. Nancy Mace said Thursday. 

"I'm a fiscal conservative," the South Carolina Republican said on CNN's "New Day." "I appreciated the lower tax rates that we had, the economic growth, Operation Warp Speed during the pandemic, all of these were great for our pandemic."

But it was all "wiped out" with what happened, Mace said. "We've got to start over. We don't have the ground that we need to push forward and do the things that we need to do to be successful and work for and be the voice for hard-working Americans who believed in his message."

She called on her colleagues to condemn the violence that took place and said the nation needs leadership more than ever. 

"We've got to rebuild our nation and rebuild our party," Mace said. 

Wednesday was "a sad day for our nation," the new lawmaker said. "I was shocked. I was heartbroken. And I was pissed off and angry by seeing this violent mob. This wasn't protests. This was anarchy."

Mace said she brought her two children to Washington, D.C., for her swearing-in ceremony Sunday, and had planned for them to stay this week but sent them home Monday morning because she was worried about the upcoming rally. 

"I woke up this morning being criticized for voting to certify a legally certified election, in all 50 states, for certifying the Electoral College," she said. "This needs to stop. Enough is enough."

Mace said that someone recently threatened on social media to shoot her, and Tuesday night, she was "accosted" on the street in the capital. 

She added that she's disappointed that there were still votes against President-elect Joe Biden's confirmation after the events of the day, and she wants her colleagues to stop "using the language of the rigged election."

"What happened yesterday is because millions of people across the country were misled by Republicans and by the administration that members of Congress could overturn and usurp the Electoral College in a single vote to object yesterday," said Mace. 

However, when asked about the possibility of Trump being removed from office through invoking the 25th Amendment, Mace said she does not "deal in rumor."
