Former US President Donald Trump said on Saturday that if he stands in the 2024 presidential election and wins it, he would pardon those charged with offenses in connection with the assault on the Capitol in Washington led on January 6, 2021.
Donald Trump, who has not said whether he will run for president again after his 2020 loss to Joe Biden, was speaking at a rally in the state of Texas.
If I show up and win, we’ll treat these people [ayant participé aux événements] of January 6 fairly, announced the former president to applause.
We will treat them fairly, and if that means we have to pardon them, we will pardon them, because they are treated so unfairly., he added.
Supporters of Donald Trump stormed the headquarters of Congress in Washington on January 6 last year in an attempt to prevent US lawmakers from certifying his defeat in the November 2020 presidential election.
