“We live in the age of cancel culture, but this isn’t something that started this week. It is something that they have been doing to us and others for years,” Eric Trump reportedly said.
Eric Trump also addressed the crowd in D.C. before the Jan. 6 riots that breached the Capitol building, reports AP News.
Rioters gained entry to the Capitol building Jan. 6 as a joint session of Congress was attempting to certify the November 2020 presidential election results.
“We witnessed the president of the United States encouraging the rioters and refraining from calling in the National Guard to protect the Congress in its performance of duty,” New York’s Signature Bank reportedly said in a statement.
