Former President Donald Trump released a powerful statement Thursday on his media platform Truth Social. Trump strikingly exclaimed that the January 6 protests represented “the greatest movement in the history of our Country to Make America Great Again.”
The whole post reads:
“The Unselect Committee didn’t spend one minute studying the reason that people went to Washington DC, in massive numbers, far greater than the Fake News Media is willing to report, or that the Unselects are willing to even mention, because January 6th was not simply a protest, it represented the greatest movement in the history of our Country to Make America Great Again. It was about an Election that was Rigged and Stolen, and a Country that was about to go to HELL…& look at our Country now!”
In a follow-up post, Trump also bashed Nancy Pelosi and Mayor Bowser for turning down his offer of 20,000 National Guard Troops to help control the massive crowds. He continued by attacking the ‘Unselects’ for ruling Pelosi off-limit for questions.
This post by Trump represents a continuation of his election security push, but also a shift to openly embracing the January 6 protests. Many of his fellow Republicans turned their backs on Trump and his supporters following the protests, leaving many questioning the true agenda of some of their representatives.
Trump’s refusal to apologize for the protests is right in line with the ‘discoveries’ of the January 6th Commission – Trump did nothing wrong so there stands no reason to apologize. Ironically, the Democrats and RINOs in the House of Representatives have labeled the protesters (who were there to uphold the most fundamental part of democracy) insurrectionists and enemies of democracy.
With the media on their side and America First supporters on the opposite, the Left stands to lose nothing by pushing blatantly false and defaming narratives regarding the events. With no one to hold them accountable for the time being, the political witch hunt continues against Trump and his allies.
At the very least, this shows that Donald Trump has not lost his will to fight and will continue to work for the American people in the face of an increasingly hostile and irrational opposition.
