Domestic Terrorist In Chief: President Donald Trump sent a message of love and support to the domestic terrorists storming the U.S. Capitol.
President Donald Trump released a chilling, pre-taped video telling his mob of supporters overtaking the U.S. Capitol, “Go home. We love you, you’re very special.”
Trump’s message was not so much an attempt to calm the terrorists, but instead a message of incitement and encouragement. In his taped message Trump said:
I know your pain, I know you’re hurt. We had an election that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election and everyone knows it, especially the other side.
But you have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order. We have to respect our great people in law and order. We don’t want anybody hurt. It’s a very tough period of time.
There’s never been a time like this, where such a thing happened, where they could take it away from all of us. From me, from you, from our country. This was a fraudulent election, but we can’t play into the hands of these people. We have to have peace. So go home.
We love you, you’re very special. We’ve seen what happens, you see the way others are treated that are so bad and so evil. I know how you feel. But go home, and go home in peace.

Trump earlier today ordered his mob to march to the Capitol. After their attack on the U.S. Capitol, he told them, ”We love you—you’re very special.”
His daughter just addressed them as “American Patriots.”
Please pay attention.
