Trump argued that those convicted in connection with the attack had been treated unfairly and said, “If I run and win, I will treat those people fairly. If not for all of them – because a few of them are out of control – I will immediately pardon the vast majority of them.”
Claiming that the 2020 elections were rigged, Trump addressed his supporters gathered in the capital on January 6 and said, “We will never give up, we will never accept defeat.”
After this speech, a group from the crowd broke through the security barriers and entered the Congress building.
After the attack, in which five people lost their lives, nearly 1,000 people were indicted. More than 600 people were found guilty in the case.
Trump has said several times in recent months that “If I were president, Russia would not invade Ukraine” and that if elected he would start negotiations for a settlement in Ukraine within 24 hours.
Donald Trump repeated his words. “I’m not interested in a winner or a loser, I’m interested in a solution. I don’t want people to die,” he said.
Trump said that Russian President Vladimir Putin was wrong to invade Ukraine, but added that the Russian leader cannot be characterized as a war criminal.
Public opinion polls in the US indicate that the number of Republicans who are uncomfortable with President Joe Biden and his administration’s support for Ukraine is increasing.
Experts suggest that Washington’s Ukraine policy will change if Trump is re-elected US President.
