Then an entire world shook Supporters of former President Donald Trump attacked the Capitol building in Washington, D.C. In the United States on January 6 trying to stop the approval of the presidential election.
More than 50 police were injured and four people were killed in the storm. They include Trump supporter and Air Force veteran Ashley Babbitt, 35, who was shot dead by security guards during the riots.
Now Trump has praised the congressional storm in a new video.
Today we remember Ashley Babbitt, an absolutely incredible person who started Trump, who has been repeatedly accused of instigating violent riots.
We mourn together
On the terrible day of January 6, Ashley made it to the United States Congress. She was shot and tragically killed. Today should be her birthday. Congratulations today Ashley.
The video is said to have been shown at an event in Texas on Sunday, where friends and family gathered to remember the dead and criticize Democrats. Journalist Ford Fisher writes on Twitter.
To Ashley’s family and friends: know that her memory will live on in our hearts forever. Together we mourn her terrible passing. Trump says there was no reason for Ashley to lose his life that day.
– Today Ashley Babbitt’s family arranged an event related to her birthday, and Trump has already sent them a video message. This .. absolutely unbelievable, writes among others defense attorney and Democrat Ron Filipkowski.
A new investigation is required
The former president also took the opportunity to demand a new “fair and impartial” investigation into the 35-year-old’s death.
We must all demand justice for Ashley and her family, so on this solemn occasion when we celebrate her life, I urge the Department of Justice to resume the investigation into her death.
The 35-year-old was shot dead by police when she tried to enter a room where about 80 politicians had taken refuge, the Huffington Post writes.
The death occurred later, but the Department of Justice found no evidence that the police officer broke the law when he shot Babbitt.
The policeman himself explained that he had repeatedly asked the mob to stay away from the room.
– I tried to wait as long as possible. I wished and prayed that no one would enter through these doors. They did not keep my orders, and so I did what I had to do to save the members of Congress, me and my fellow officers, he said earlier.
