WATCH: Trump Tells Fox News That His Words the Morning of Insurrection Were ‘Extremely Calming’

Democrats have frequently accused Trump of inciting an insurrection the day of January 6th. They have a pretty strong case. The former president repeatedly made incendiary statements that morning.

He told the crowd, “We will never give up. We will never concede. It doesn’t happen. You don’t concede when there’s theft involved. Our country has had enough. We will not take it anymore.”

At another point in the speech, he said to the rioters, “You will have an illegitimate president. That is what you will have, and we can’t let that happen. If you don’t fight like hell you’re not going to have a country anymore.”

And the former president, of course, told the crowd that he’d be marching down to the Capitol with him. But as he is wont to do, Trump is painting a much different picture of what happened that day. During a Friday night interview with Laura Ingraham, he claimed that his words that day were ‘extremely calming.’

When asked about the House investigation, Trump said, “Honestly, I have nothing to hide. I wasn’t involved in it. And if you look at my words and everything in the speech, they were extremely calming, actually. But, the Democrats would like to see it, and I think secretly they’d like to see it (Trump’s claim of Executive Privilege) upheld.”
