In stilted video uploaded to his reactivated Twitter account, Trump did not accept any role in inciting the violence perpetrated by his supporters when they forced the way into the Capitol, inflicting damage as police escorted members of Congress to secure locations. The attack left one Capitol Police Officer dead and an Air Force veteran who posted O’Anon conspiracy theories shot and killed when she tried to force her way into the building.
After violence, mayhem by his supporters, Trump finally admits defeat, promises ‘orderly transition’
White House aides described Trump as an ‘out of control monster’ while holed up in the White House watching reports of the violence he incited destroy what little was left of his tattered legacy.
Trump incited the mob that breached the Capitol and hastened the end to his lied-filled, corrupt presidency
With the end coming, Trump lashed out in rage at Vice President Mike Pence for putting the Constitution and the law above the lawless desires of a president who lost it all while holed up in the White House, refusing to even go before the American public and disavow the actions of his followers.
His actions incited the mob that shut down the Capitol, temporarily suspended the business of Congress, and shuttered his chaotic attempt to save an election he lost and any hopes for a legacy.
Many of the pro-Trumpers wore garish attire, shouted obscene slogans and vulgar insults at police and bystanders. Trump, of course, applauded their actions.
His unbalanced actions have stoked threats and violence from his equally unstable supporters.
Ignoring the facts and verified election counts, the cult of Trump took to the streets to do what Trump does: Incite violence, promote hate and push lies.
When we need to point out who is responsible for the violence that threatens America, one only needs to focus on the man who lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Biden called Trump’s rage tweets on Sunday irresponsible and self-serving. “He’s stoking violence in our cities. He can’t stop the violence because for years he’s fomented it.”
The trouble on the streets that Trump claims will be part of the Biden administration overlooks one key fact: It is happening now, in his presidency, and he can’t control it.
