Trump condemns Capitol Hill violence in video that does not mention impeachment
The video was published on the official account of the President of the United States on the network "Twitter"
President Donald Trump tweeted a video message Wednesday night, in which he did not mention the impeachment announced to him by the House of Representatives. The video was released around 6:00 pm local time as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi signed the articles of impeachment approved by a majority of legislators..
Trump in his speech drew attention to the violence that took place within the walls of the Capitol on January 6 and ultimately led to the fact that the House of Representatives impeached the president with the wording «for inciting violence».
«I want to be very clear: I condemn unreservedly the violence we saw last week. In our country … there is no place for violence and vandalism», – Trump said, adding that the people who smashed the Capitol last week were not his «true supporters».
«Crowd Violence Goes Against Everything I Believe In And Everything That Our Movement Stands For», – Trump said without taking responsibility for the actions that led to the riots on Wednesday.
«My true supporters disapprove of political violence. None of my true supporters can disrespect law enforcement or our great American flag. None of my true supporters have ever threatened … their compatriots … If you do something like that, then you do not support our movement – you attack him. You are attacking our country. We will not tolerate this», – this is how Trump commented on the actions of the people who broke into the building of Congress with the flags of the movement «Let’s Make America Great Again».
Trump also announced «unprecedented attack» to freedom of speech, bearing in mind the actions of the largest social networks that blocked his personal accounts.
