The former US president says the investigation into the unrest on Capitol Hill is aimed at preventing him from running for office again in 2024.
Former US President Donald Trump has accused US Democrats of using the investigation into the unrest on Capitol Hill to distract Americans from the fact that their country is “being destroyed” and prevent him from running for office again in 2024.
Trump made the claim Monday in a 12-page statement, issued in response to the launch of public hearings last week by the House committee investigating the events of January 6, 2021.
Members of Congress are building a case that Trump, by publicly insisting that the 2020 election was stolen from him, despite presidential aides repeatedly saying that was not true, misled his supporters and goaded them into storming the Trump administration building. Capitol.
“Our nation is suffering. Our economy is in the gutter. Inflation is galloping. Gasoline prices have reached an all-time high. Ships cannot unload cargo. Families can’t get the baby formula they need. We are an embarrassment in the whole world”, Trump wrote.
But instead of trying to solve these and other problems, the “Democratic Congress” is organizing “a kangaroo court, hoping to distract the American people from the great pain they are experiencing,” the former president stated.
Seventeen months after the events of January 6, the Democrats are unable to offer solutions. They are desperate to change the narrative of a failed nation… Make no mistake, they control the government. They are the owners of this mess. They hope that these hearings will somehow alter their failed perspectives.
Trump repeated his claim that Democrats “I came to power through a rigged election, and the people of our country are angry and sad.”
The January 6 probe is “Simply an attempt to prevent a man who is leading in every poll, against Republicans and Democrats by wide margins, from running for president again.” Trump wrote.
“America is being destroyed. The Democrats know I would correct all of this and they are doing everything in their power to stop me.” he added.
