“The Secret Service told me I couldn’t go. Otherwise, I would have gone there without hesitation, ”said the former president in an interview with the Washington Postreleased Thursday.

On this cold day in January 2021, thousands of supporters of the Republican billionaire gathered in Washington to denounce alleged “fraud” in the November 2020 election, which deprived Donald Trump of a second term.

“We will never give up. We will never concede defeat, had launched the president of the time to a human tide waving flags “Trump 2020”.

“The crowd was much bigger than I could have imagined,” the president recalled to the American daily.

After listening to Donald Trump, thousands of demonstrators set out for the US Congress, where elected officials formally certified Joe Biden’s presidential victory.

Seeking to disrupt this session, hundreds of supporters of the president had forced the entrance of the Capitol, causing untold chaos.

“I hated to see it, I hated to see it,” Donald Trump told the Washington Post about this violence.

“I said, ‘Somebody has to take care of it,’ and I assumed that someone was taking care of it,” he added, blaming the unrest on the mismanagement of events by Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser and Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi.

The role of Donald Trump and his entourage in the organization of the events of January 6, 2021 is the subject of a parliamentary investigation.
