President Donald Trump has promised to give pardons to people who are being treated unfairly in connection to the events of January 6th at the Capitol.
“If I run, and if I win, we will treat those people from Jan. 6 fairly,” Trump explained. “And if it requires pardons, we will give them pardons.”
“Because they are being treated so unfairly,” he emphasized.
Trump delivered these comments while visiting Texas at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds in the city of Conroe.
Trump told the crowd, “We are going to kick the Biden crime family out of the White House” in 2024.
“We are going to start by ending Nancy Pelosi’s political career once and for all” as she seeks re-election in the 2022 midterm election cycle, Trump said.
“Everyone in Washington is obsessing over how to protect Ukraine’s border—but the most important border in the world is not Ukraine’s border, it’s America’s Border but let people come in and we have no idea who they are,” Trump said.
“The first duty of the American president is to defend the American border,” he said.
“Before Joe Biden sends any troops to defend a border in Eastern Europe he should be sending troops to defend our border right here in Texas,” he continued.

A little over a year ago, lawmakers were forced to evacuate the U.S. Capitol and temporarily suspend the certification of the Electoral College results as rioters plowed through police perimeters and breached the building and occupied it for several hours.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia charged more than 700 people across the country for their alleged participation in the riot, including at least 81 current or former service members, CBS News reported. About 275 Capitol riot defendants have been charged with a felony offense of attempting to “corruptly obstruct, influence, or impede” the Electoral College certification and more than 530 defendants have yet to stand trial.
Later during the rally, Trump attacked President Biden for preparing to send troops over to Europe to help defend Ukraine against a potential attack from Russia, saying the U.S. border should be top priority.
