Donald Trump Defends His Capitol Riot Response & Warns Big Tech

During an impromptu interview on Tuesday President Trump answered several questions regarding his possibility of a consecutive impeachment and whether he played any role in the Capitol Hill insurrection that took place on last week by his supporters which caused five casualties and countless injuries.

Trump described the possibility of a second formal House rebuke as “a terrible thing” that was placing the country in great “danger.” When reporters asked if he felt any “personal responsibility” for inciting the invasion he chose to stand by his remarks “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 also credited the House leaders for continuing “the greatest witch hunt in political history” by initiating his second impeachment which would be a first for any sitting US President. “This impeachment is causing tremendous anger, and you’re doing it and it’s really a terrible thing that they’re doing.” He continued “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” @NBC. He also suggested that large social media platforms were causing “problems” by suspending his account. And said a “counter move” would take place but did not clarify the assertion further.
