Appearing on Fox News‘ “The Next Revolution With Steve Hilton” Sunday night, President Trump revealed he requested an additional 10,000 National Guard troops be deployed ahead of the now-infamous January 6th rally.
The Trump team allegedly warned the “top person” at the Department of Defense that crowds might be larger than expected and asked for 10,000 National Guardsmen to be deployed.
The request was said to have made it to Capitol leaders, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who denied the additional troops in the name of optics.
“I heard they rejected it, because they didn’t think it would look good,” Trump explained.
Referring to the people who entered the Capitol building later that day, Donald said, “I hate to see it. I think it’s terrible,” before noting, “However, when you see Seattle and Portland burning and all these other places burning with Antifa and the radical left, nothing seems to happen… nobody seems to be bothered by that.”
“But, I hated to see the sight at the Capitol,” he added. “I hate to see any of that. But, it is a double standard because anytime you see Antifa and these other cities burning, it’s terrible, you look at Minneapolis and what happened there, if we didn’t allow the Guard to go in they’d still be having problems there. So, I hate to see that double standard and I think it’s very unfair.”
Just like the establishment media and Democrat politicians lied about President Trump “inciting a riot” on January 6th, the same treatment was given to Infowars’ Alex Jones.
See the report below where Alex exposes how Frontline edited footage to make it seem as if Jones ordered the attack on the Capitol.
Raw bodycam footage shows Alex Jones and crew actively trying to work with law enforcement to prevent the crowd from breaking through police lines.
