Newsmax: Former President Donald Trump said Saturday’s “Justice for J6” in Washington, D.C., will be a no-win situation for Republicans.
“That’s a setup,” Trump said of the gathering, intended to show support for people arrested after the Jan. 6 attack, in an interview with The Federalist. “If people don’t show up they’ll say, ‘Oh, it’s a lack of spirit.’ And if people do show up, they’ll be harassed.”
Trump said the treatment of people involved in the Jan. 6 Capitol violence has reinforced that a double standard exists in the country.
“There’s a discontent with everything having to do with politics,” Trump told The Federalist. “People are so disgusted with the way people are being treated from the Jan. 6 situation. It’s a combination of that compared to how antifa and [Black Lives Matter] were treated. When you compare the treatment, it is so unjust, it is so unfair. It’s disgraceful.”
Trump slammed former President George Bush, who during remarks on the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks indirectly criticized the former president and Trump supporters by claiming they were “children of the same foul spirit” that inspired the 9/11 hijackers.
“Bush now goes around lecturing everybody about all sorts of things, and he shouldn’t be lecturing anybody, because he’s the one who got us into the mess of the Middle East,” Trump said. “In the 20 years since, it’s been obliterated, and it’s probably in worse shape now than it’s ever been because of him.
“When Bush left the presidency, his approval rating was in the low-20s. I don’t know how he was that high. There must’ve been something wrong with the poll.”
Trump did compliment Democrats for remaining united to achieve their goals.
