45th President Donald Trump is breaking his silence on the recent attack on Paul Pelosi at his house, which has been widely reported to have been perpetrated by a man named David DePape. According to the incident, Paul Pelosi called 911 to report the intrusion, saying he knew DePape as a “friend.” DePape’s neighbors and ex-partner have affirmed that he has a history of mental illness.
The Hill reports:
“With Paul Pelosi, that’s a terrible thing, with all of them it’s a terrible thing,” Trump said in an interview with Americano Media, a conservative Spanish language outlet. “Look at what’s happened to San Francisco generally. Look at what’s happening in Chicago. It was far worse than Afghanistan.”
“We have to give the police back their dignity, their respect. They can solve the problem. But today if a police officer says something that’s slightly out of line it’s like the end of his life, the end of his pension, the end of his family,” Trump continued. “We can’t do that. We have to give the police back their authority and their power and their respect. Because this country is out of control.”
Trump remained silent on the attack on Paul Pelosi over the weekend, as others in the GOP sent mixed messages about it. Many Democrats, including President Biden, called for members of both parties to unequivocally condemn the attack as they worried about a rise in political violence.
Paul Pelosi, 82, was attacked early Friday morning in his home by an intruder, police said. Authorities arrived at the home and found the two men tussling over a hammer. The suspect then gained control of the hammer and used it to attack Paul Pelosi.
Reports indicate that Paul Pelosi underwent surgery for a skull fracture after reportedly being hit with a hammer.
There is no doubt that hammers need to be regulated, and all those purchasing hammers ought to be put on a watch list. What the heck is going on in wonderful Californication. Who has the nerve to assault the husband of a very POWERFUL member of our gov’t without asking permission from the party?
These Pissolsi’s are so corrupt and we will never get the real truth. These evil woke scum turned their backs when innocent people were attacked and murdered in their area so I don’t feel sorry for that whole sick heartless family. They are a disgrace.
how do you know he didn’t call them?
The obvious comment from Pres Trump would have been, I know what it’s like to have the sanctity of my home violated. By an obvious BLM flag leftist with mental illness, and some personal connection to the victim. How to spin this to make it appear to be an attack by right wingers.
In all fairness, I’d probably be smoking pole too if I had to come home to Nancy every night…
