Former President Donald Trump slammed Democrats for using the Jan. 6 Capitol riot as theater to accomplish their political goals.
“What we witnessed yesterday was the last gasps of a corrupt and discredited left-wing political and media establishment that has, for decades, driven our country into the ground—shipping away our jobs, surrendering our strength, sacrificing our sovereignty, attacking our history and values, and trying to turn America into a country that our people can barely recognize,” Trump said in a statement.
He noted that “these radical leftists in Washington care NOTHING for American Democracy” and will soon be “voted out power” for their hypocrisy.
“Joe Biden’s voice is now the voice of desperation and despair,” Trump said. “His handlers gave him that speech to read yesterday because they know the unprecedented failures of his presidency and the left-wing extremism of the Pelosi-Schumer Congress have destroyed the Democrat Party.”
Trump noted that despite the left’s attempts to push false narratives such as the Russia collusion hoax and the Jan. 6 “insurrection,” “the American People are seeing right through their phony media event.”
“The people see right through that sham. They see a cynical politician who ran for office promising unity who is now doing the most divisive thing possible—slandering his political opponents as domestic terrorists, just like insecure dictators do in communist countries,” Trump said.
He also noted how Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is using the Jan. 6 Committee to target her political opponents.
“The American People also see that January 6 has become the Democrats’ excuse and pretext for the most chilling assault on the civil liberties of American citizens in generations,” Trump said. “It is being used to justify outrageous attacks on free speech, widespread censorship, de-platforming, calls for increased domestic surveillance, appalling abuse of political prisoners, labeling opponents of COVID lockdowns and mandates as national security threats, and even ordering the FBI to target parents who object to the radical indoctrination of their children in school.”
“And this week, January 6 is also the Democrats’ excuse for trying to pass a radical Federal takeover of state election law. They are trying to BAN voter ID and other basic measures that can ensure the sacred integrity of the vote,” he continued. “The reason the Democrats are doing all of this is not because they believe they will win a fair and honest election. It’s because they know they will overwhelmingly LOSE one.”
Trump said the power gained by Democrats, who are assisted by the corporate media and other elites, is limited and will soon be eliminated.
“Today, I am more confident than ever in the strength and common sense of the American People. They are counting the days until we will no longer have to be constantly lectured, lied to, and dictated to by corrupt politicians and their media partners. When we will no longer have to put up with this broken establishment’s hoaxes and its manufactured media narratives—And as Biden and his radical handlers know, that day is coming fast. Because in the months and years ahead, the American People are going to speak up, take action, and VOTE in massive numbers, and we are going to TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY,” Trump said. “Joe Biden and the Radical Democrats have failed on every front. But do not lose hope. America WILL be Great Again.”
