Summary (IA Generated)

In his first live public comments since he encouraged a crowd of his supporters to march on Capitol Hill last Wednesday, President Donald Trump took no responsibility for whipping them up.

“If you read my speech — and many people have done it, and I’ve seen it both in the papers and in the media, on television — it’s been analyzed, and people thought that what I said was totally appropriate,” Trump told reporters at Joint Base Andrews Tuesday, on his way to Texas for a media event at the southern border.

In reality, Trump’s speech was widely viewed — including by many Republicans who previously supported him — as leading to the violence at the Capitol.

An article of impeachment introduced by House Democrats on Monday accuses Trump of “inciting violence against the Government of the United States.

”.

As I detailed last Friday, Trump used the words “fight” or “fighting” at least 20 times during that speech last week, saying things like, “We’re going to have to fight much harder,” and, “You’ll never take back our country with weakness.

They marched down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol, chanting threats against Vice President Mike Pence, who Trump mentioned repeatedly by name.

Five people died while the Capitol was overrun.

Trump told reporters that his remarks were “totally appropriate.

“If you look at what other people have said — politicians at a high level — about the riots during the summer, the horrible riots in Portland and Seattle and various other places, that was a real problem, what they said,” said Trump.

“But they’ve analyzed my speech and my words and my final paragraph, my final sentence, and everybody to the T thought it was totally appropriate.

President Trump: ‘If you read my speech.

people thought that what I said was totally appropriate.

Trump, however, suggested on Tuesday that if there is more violence in his name in the days to come, it’ll actually be the fault of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer.

“For Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to continue on this path, I think it’s causing tremendous danger to our country and it’s causing tremendous anger.

I want no violence,” Trump told reporters outside the White House, before helicoptering to Andrews.

Even without Twitter, Trump can use the megaphone of the presidency to communicate with the radicalized part of his base that showed up at the US Capitol last week.
