Former President Donald Trump made news over and over again during his CNN townhall on Wednesday, but one thing he said about those convicted of the fake insurrection on Jan. 6, 2021, infuriated leftists everywhere.
During the CNN event, Wayne Beyer, who is said to be a retired attorney from New Hampshire, asked Trump, “Will you pardon, then, January 6 rioters who were convicted of federal offenses?”
What Trump said in reply was perfect.
“I am inclined to pardon many of them. I can’t say for every single one because a couple of them probably they got out of control,” Trump said.
Trump then made another salient point about the Democrats’ beloved domestic terror outfit, Antifa.
But you know, when you look at Antifa, what they’ve done to Portland, what they’ve done to Minneapolis and so many other, so many other places. Look at that what they did to Seattle. And BLM… many people were killed. These people, I’m not trying to justify anything, but you have two standards of justice in this country. And what they’ve done – and I love that question – because what they’ve done to so many people is nothing, nothing, and then what they’ve done to these people, they’ve persecuted these people.
He is exactly right. Antifa is responsible for actually killing people, not to mention billions in property damage and the left does nothing.
Trump went on to say he’d likely pardon “large portion” of the federal prisoners.
“They’re living in hell, and they’re policemen, and they’re firemen, and they’re soldiers, and they’re carpenters and electricians, and they’re great people. Many of them are just great people,” he said.
