Former President Donald Trump is projecting that when he blames others for the January 6 insurrection, Rep. Nancy Pelosi said Sunday.
Pelosi's comments came after Trump claimed in an interview aired on NBC that he had asked 10,000 National Guard troops to defend the US Capitol from his supporters, only for the former House Speaker to reject them.
However, there is no record of such an order and, on the day of the insurrection, Trump never placed any call for troops to defend the Capitol, even after it was breached.
Pelosi, who was seen on video calling for security reinforcements on January 6, argued it was Trump's fault for not stopping the violence aimed at blocking President Joe Biden's victory in the 2020 election.
Is Pelosi advocating for and against resettlement by the U.S. troops?
