The Trump Incident On January 6

The Trump Incident On January 6 - By Felicia


On January 6, a pro-Trump mob battled police, broke into the U.S. Capitol, and sent members of Congress fleeing as lawmakers were counting Electoral College votes to confirm the presidential victory of Democrat Joe Biden. And guess what? Trump encouraged this. This article is all about what happened and how Trump was and will be punished for this disgraceful action of his.


First, at 6 AM, thousands of Trump supporters gathered for the protest. Trump actually tweeted about the rally on Dec. 19: "Big protest in D.C. on January 6th. Be there, be wild!" What better way to arouse suspicion?


Second, at 10 AM, Trump made a speech before the riot, titled “Save America Rally”. Then, him and his thousands of supporters went over to the White House.


Third, at 1 PM, lawmakers gather for a joint session in the House of Representatives chamber to count Electoral College votes. But only ten minutes later, rioters begin grappling with police on the Capitol steps. The whole White House was surrounded by protesters. By 1:30, an evacuation was ordered. There were bombs and gunshots, and guess what? Trump encouraged it all.


Fourth, at 2:11 PM, rioters breached police lines on the west side of the Capitol. Moments later, you could see them scaling the walls.


Later on, Trump tweets, “Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify. The USA demands the truth!”


After the riot, several punishments were issued to Trump, the first of which was that he was permanently banned from several social media platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, and more. The Vice President Mike Pence is also planning to invoke the 25th Amendment to force Trump from office - a process for stripping the president of his post and installing the vice-president to take over.


You see, the rioters do have the right to support Trump. However, they do not have the right to use violence to get others to support Trump. Trump also does not have the right to encourage violence.
