In an interview on British TV this Wednesday, former President Donald Trump was asked by Brexit campaigner-turned-broadcaster Nigel Farage if it was a mistake to hold the “Stop the Steal” rally on the morning the Jan. 6, just before the riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Of course, Trump had no regrets regarding the rally.
“It was a massive rally with hundreds and hundreds of thousands of people. I think it was the largest crowd I’ve ever spoken before,” Trump replied.
“If you would’ve looked at the crowds, the size, nobody wants to talk about that,” he continued. “I believe it was the biggest and most people I ever ― and I’ve spoken to very big crowds ― I have never spoken in front of a crowd that size. Nobody ever talks about that.”
“And then, unfortunately, some bad things happened,” he added, presumably referring to the riot.

In new interview, Trump was asked if he regretted J6. He said the “real insurrection” was on Election Day and J6 was just a protest, that nobody gives him credit for drawing so many people to hear him speak that day, and “the other side had some very bad things happen.” pic.twitter.com/z8pnx0aFXV
