White House staffers asked Trump to take action on riots CNN

White House staffers asked Trump to take action on riots

From CNN's Jim Acosta

A White House official told CNN that aides to the President went to Trump to have him make the order to deploy the National Guard to the US Capitol.

The official said aides also asked that Trump record a video calling for an end to the siege on the Hill.

In other words, these were not decisions Trump made on his own. Aides went to him to get him to do it.

A source familiar with the situation said White House staffers are "horrified" by the violence at the Capitol and are worried there will be more trouble on the streets tonight.

1. I Heard Trump's Statement And He Still Persisted To Talk About A Rigged Stolen Election.....

IMHO - he was still inciting these rioters.

2. Of course he wouldn't have done any of it on his own. He wants the chaos.

3. They should be strapping him into a white jacket

that buckles in the back. Maybe it wouldn't hurt to have him held down by a knee on his neck. He's crazy as a loon, and his insanity has killed this country. Basta!
