Trump Joins House Republicans in Disrespecting U.S. Capitol Police

Trump Falsely Claims Insurrectionists ‘Are Being Treated Unbelievably Unfairly’ and Attacks Law Enforcement

From the Speaker’s Press Office:

Twice-impeached Florida retiree – and de facto leader of the Republican Party – Donald Trump joined House Republicans today in disrespecting the Capitol Police and other law enforcement officers, who valiantly defended the U.S. Capitol on January 6th, decrying how rioters “are being treated unbelievably unfairly” now that they are facing legal consequences for their actions.

Huffington Post:

“Donald Trump on Wednesday defended the domestic terrorists who assaulted the Capitol on his behalf on Jan. 6 as he announced federal lawsuits against social media companies — lawsuits that could make him testify under oath about his actions that day.”

“Asked what he did to defuse the mob attack on Jan. 6, the day that triggered his social media banishment, Trump instead complained about how harshly his rioters were being treated by authorities.”


Like Donald, House Republicans have shown time and time again that they stand with traitors – not with our law enforcement.
