Former President of the United States Donald Trump is a highly controversial figure and is known to do a lot of bizarre things from time to time. He has his fair share of haters and there is a good reason for that. It seems he has made headlines for all the wrong reasons once again.
Donald Trump’s controversial comments over the years have drawn the ire of people all over the world. In fact, last month, Donald Trump caused outrage after claiming Haitian immigrants probably have AIDS.
Trump seemingly defended the Capitol insurrectionists who were hell-bent on hanging Vice President Mike Pence earlier this year. While speaking with ABC’s Jonathan Karl, Trump was asked if he was worried for Pence’s safety during the January 6 riot.
“I thought he was well-protected and I had heard he was in good shape.”
Karl then talked about how horrible the rioter’s conduct was, to which Trump said, “well, the people were very angry.” Karl answered back, “They were saying, ‘hang Mike Pence.'”
Trump then defended the crowd, saying, “Because it’s common sense, Jon. How can you — if you know a vote is fraudulent, right? How can you pass on a fraudulent vote to Congress? How can you do that?” So it seems Trump essentially supported the Capitol rioters who wanted to hang Mike Pence. As always, Trump manages to draw the ire of any good human being and that is unlikely to change anytime soon.
