Unrepentant Trump for Capitol incidents: I did not force them

US President Donald Trump, in line with the arguments of FOX and other conservative supporters, said that his speech last Wednesday did not contain anything “violent” and that instead Democrats' efforts to oust him and technology companies “silence” him, provoke the anger of his supporters and force them.

What President Trump considered “perfectly appropriate” in his speech was the invitation to his followers to go to the Capitol “and fight like hell.”

Speaking in the White House courtyard and later at Andrews Base shortly before leaving for Texas – where he will inspect the wall on the Mexican border – President Trump declined to say whether he intends to step down, but said the move for his expulsion cause great anger in his supporters.

“This accusation is causing a great deal of anger and you are doing it, it is a really terrible thing. The fact that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Sumer are continuing on this path, I think, is a huge danger to our country and it is a huge anger. “I do not want any violence,” he said.

At the same time, he blamed Democratic politicians for what they said during the summer protests after the assassination of African-American George Floyd by police.

The House of Representatives is currently debating the issue of the President's referral, and a plenary resolution will be put to a vote later in the day calling on Vice President Mike Pence to activate the 25th amendment to the Constitution to remove President Trump from office. Council of the Ministers. Given that President Trump will refuse, tomorrow the issue of referring the President to trial with the question of expulsion, because he incited a revolt, will be raised in Parliament. Voting will take place on Wednesday or early Thursday. However, the leader of the majority in the Senate – which will try Trump – refuses to convene the body (he is on vacation) on January 19, one day before the inauguration of President Biden.

A 2/3 majority is required to oust the US President. However, he will be the first in history to be referred to trial twice.
