Piers Morgan has condemned his 'friend' Donald Trump's 'shameful legacy' as he vented his disgust at the events in the US Capitol.

Four people were killed in the riots – including a woman, whose shooting Piers said was 'on Trump'.

Reacting to footage and images of Trump's supporters storming congress, Piers told the former Apprentice host this was not 'reality TV' and urged him to get out of the White House.

The Good Morning Britain host, 55, appears to have finally severed ties with Trump – after saying he considered him a 'close friend' during the US election in November.

The outspoken presenter responded furiously to a Tweet from Trump during the carnage that asked for 'everyone at the US Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the party of Law & Order – respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!'

Hitting back at his former 'friend', Piers raged: 'Too f*cking late.'

"A woman's been shot in this carnage and it's all on you. This is not reality TV, this is real life. Get on TV admit you lost the election, & call off this insanity. And then get out of the White House," he fumed.

This morning Piers returned to Twitter to reflect on 'last night's mayhem'.

Sharing a photograph of one of Trump's supporters, he told his followers: "So many appalling images from last night's mayhem in USA but nothing worse than this. President Trump's shameful legacy will now be that a confederate flag was raised in the US Capitol building for the first time ever. It didn't even happen during the Civil War. Horrifying," he commented.

During the US election last November, Piers said he considered Trump a 'close friend' and revealed they had been speaking on the phone.

The pair have been on good terms for a number of years but fell out after Piers publicly criticised Trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

During an appearance on This Morning, Piers said that Trump picked up the phone to call after seeing him on a US TV programme – which he said led to a two and a half hour long coversation.

"He knows how critical I've been about the coronavirus," Piers said. “I called him out, and I said you should start refollowing me on Twitter because he unfollowed me when I told him to shut the bleep up about coronavirus… and it all got pretty unpleasant.

“But he saw me talk about it and he called me up, and you know I still consider him to be a friend, I've known him a long time.”

Piers branded the president a 'tone deaf' 'super spreader' back in October over his response to testing positive to Covid-19.

Trump temporarily left the Walter Reed Medical Center, where he was being treated, to wave at his supporters from a car being driven by security.
