The news is out: [A former top aide to Vice President Mike Pence said on Monday that she feared that violence could erupt in Washington, DC, on January 6, the day Congress is scheduled to meet to finalize the result of the 2020 presidential election.
Olivia Troye, who has been a vocal critic of the Trump administration since leaving the White House in August, told MSNBC she was “very concerned” that there would be violence “because the president himself is encouraging it.”
“This is what he does. He tweets. He incites it. He gets his followers and supporters to behave in this manner, and these people think that they’re being patriotic because they are supporting Donald Trump,” she said.
“In terms of his legacy, this is a president who calls himself the president of law and order, and we have seen anything but that,” Troye continued. “We had a bombing on Christmas Day. We’ve had protests in the streets. This is all out of control.”]
