“No true supporter of mine could ever endorse political violence. No true supporter of mine could ever disrespect law enforcement or our great American flag,” he said from behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office.
“Now I am asking everyone who has ever believed in our agenda to be thinking of ways to ease tensions, calm tempers and help to promote peace in our country,” he said.
At the end of the spot, which was recorded by the White House and not independent television cameras, Trump decried what he called the “unprecedented assault on free speech we have seen in recent days.”

More lies in Trump video. Says “no true supporters of mine could ever endorse political violence.” (These were his supporters of his at rally. He told them to come. He said he was with them as they marched to Capitol. Also he has stoked violence before calling press “enemy,” etc)

In a new video, Trump says, “I unequivocally condemn the violence that we saw last week. Violence and vandalism have absolutely no place in our country and our movement.” After initially defending their actions as understandable, he now says his true supporters wouldn’t do that. pic.twitter.com/q1eivWANVp

President Trump says no “true supporter” of his could have acted like the insurrectionists. So does that mean no pardons are forthcoming?
