Trump: My Speech Before the US Capitol Riot Was ‘Totally Appropriate’

President Donald Trump believes his words from his speech last week were “totally appropriate.”

A reporter asked as Trump departed for Alamo, Texas, on Tuesday what his “role in what happened at the Capitol” was and what his “personal responsibility” is.

Trump defended the speech he gave at a rally last Wednesday, which happened just before protestors stormed the U.S. Capitol.

“If you read my speech, and many people have done it… it’s been analyzed… People thought that what I said was totally appropriate,” Trump said.

During the president’s speech at the “Save America” rally last Wednesday in Washington, D.C., Trump told his supporters they should “walk down to the Capitol” to “cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women.”

He also said, “We’re probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them, because you’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength, and you have to be strong.”

“We will never give up. We will never concede. It doesn’t happen. You don’t concede when there’s theft involved,” Trump said, later adding, “We fight like hell, and if you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore.”

The president said last Thursday in a video message that he was “outraged by the violence, lawlessness, and mayhem” at the U.S. Capitol.

Trump also touched on impeachment when speaking to reporters, calling it “a really terrible thing that they’re doing.”

“To continue on this path, I think it’s causing tremendous danger to our country, and it’s causing tremendous anger,” the president added. “I want no violence.”

Ahead of the president’s visit, the city of Alamo said that it received no official contact from the White House on Trump’s visit on Tuesday. Trump will visit the border wall.

Responses

  1. The reason that he used the word “appropriate” is because he again used his technique of stochastic terrorism. He winds up the crowd, sends them on their way, but leaves himself just enough wiggle room to sew doubt about culpability. He has been using that technique for so long and gotten away with it, that he tried one more time. Apparently, it was one too many times.

  2. The majority of the people did not think it was appropriate. The majority of the people voted for Joe Biden. Resign or be impeached.

  3. “Remember, we claim to be the “law and order” party, so it wouldn’t look good to hurt the police— but at the end of the day, Princess MAGA loves ya.” Princess Ivanka

    Oh, man, don’t you just love it when you get something SO right? Labeling the president as “King Donald The Loser” was so precient AND appropriate.

  4. It’s almost as appropriate as his phone conversation with the president of Ukraine, when he tried (very obviously) to extort a false police investigation of the Bidens, threatening to withhold military equipment. Trump learned from his mob lawyer buddy Roy Cohn how to trim his statements so that they were just shy of incriminating in court, while making his criminal purpose clear to his audience.

  5. Think what you want, dummy. You are stuck in this quagmire that YOU created and there is nothing that you can do now, to change what will happen to you now.

    The most “appropriate” thing for you to do now is just resign. Do a Richard Nixon.
