Trump rallied his Radical Right followers to storm the Capitol to stop or disrupt the recording of the electoral votes..They shouted Hang Mike Pence because he failed to follow Trumps wishes and in their mind betrayed Trump. Trump with his continued Big Lies and conspiracy theories caused it and he had the power to stop it and he didn't.. He loved what was happening and the size of the crowd.. A total disgrace to the office of the US President, and now a true testimate of the levels Republicans will stoop to make excuses for Trump who will go down in history as the worst President ever who tried to overturn the will of the people to and the Constitution to try to stay in power after losing the election. Trump is a deplorable disgrace and should be held accountable for his actions along with all who participated in the insurrection attempt...

Trump will never in his lifetime admit that he was the only one responsible for the coup. Like every time he's to blame for something he calls it witch hunt. He and everyone heard him incite the people to march the Capitol steps and get their country back. Why he won't admit it is beyond reproach of a man like him. Isn't he a strong forward person bullying people to do the right thing and admit their wrongdoings? Why doesn't he admit he was responsible? Didn't he want them to stop the certification? Didn't he want to stop the steal?
