In addition to their own sentiments, many members of the Business Roundtable, a D.C.-based nonprofit association whose members include CEOs of major U.S.-based companies, shared the association’s official statement on Wednesday’s events:

“The chaos unfolding in the nation’s capital is the result of unlawful efforts to overturn the legitimate results of a democratic election. The country deserves better. Business Roundtable calls on the President and all relevant officials to put an end to the chaos and to facilitate the peaceful transition of power,” the Business Roundtable statement read.
