World Leader Tears Into Trump And “Other Politicians” Over The “Assault On Democracy By Violet Rioters, Incited By The Current President”

The whole world was watching.

The riots that ensued after Donald Trump encouraged his supporters to march to the Capitol horrified the world as they broke windows to gain entry after scaling the walls, then they took over the federal building. Some of them even smeared feces on the Capitol hallways. Five people died, including a police officer, and others were injured. Several domestic terrorists reportedly said: “that they hoped to find Vice President Mike Pence and execute him by hanging him from a Capitol Hill tree.” Some appeared ready to take hostages with flex-cuffs at the ready.

And all of this happened because the Red Hats were fed lies from the outgoing president simply because he suffered from a narcissistic injury and is incapable of admitting defeat. They were fed lie after lie after lie, and all without Trump backing his wild-eyed claims up with evidence. Even after case after case was thrown out in court, Trump kept lying about the election. Then, of course, the outgoing president’s Republican enablers supported Trump’s claims, and all of this led to the violent riot.

The whole world was watching.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a news conference on Friday that the “current president” incited the violent rioters that stormed the Capitol on Wednesday, CNN reports.

“What we witnessed was an assault on democracy by violent rioters, incited by the current president and other politicians,” Trudeau said. “As shocking and deeply disturbing and frankly, saddening as that event remains, we’ve also seen this week that democracy is resilient in America, our closest ally and neighbor. Violence has no place in our societies, and extremists will not succeed in overruling the will of the people.”

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson issued a strong condemnation on Thursday against both the rioters and President Donald Trump.

“On the United States and the election, I want to say that all my life America has stood for some very important things — an idea of freedom and an idea of democracy. And … so far as he encouraged people to storm the Capitol and insofar as the President has consistently cast doubt on the outcome of a free and fair election, I believe that that was completely wrong,” he said. “And what President Trump has been saying about that has been completely wrong, and I unreservedly condemn encouraging people to behave in the disgraceful way that they did in the Capitol.”

Other world leaders have weighed in, too, laying the blame squarely at Donald Trump’s feet.
