Navarro memos warning of mass coronavirus death circulated in January

Donald Trump got an early warning. But he did not treat the US citizens as adults. Thus, no appropriate countermeasures were taken. Trump got thousands of people killed.
One reason for hiding the truth is that one of the main components of Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign was to take his followers to the streets – and finally to the lawn and steps of the US Capitol. In order to create a furious mob, Trump had to downplay the CoViD-19 hazard. Trump sacrificed his followers (and also their families, friends and colleagues).

We the People must take to the US Capitol lawn and steps and tell Congress #DoNotCertify on #JAN6! Congress cannot certify this fraudulent Electoral College. Our presence in Washington D.C. will let Members of Congress know that we stand with Rep. Mo Brooks and his colleagues in the House of Representatives who will bravely object to the certification of the Electoral College. We’re in need of at least one Senator. We’ve identified six (seven including Senator-elect Tommy Tuberville) that could join our cause.

Mr. Trump concluded his 70-minute exhortation by encouraging everyone to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue to give Republicans at the Capitol “the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country.” Then the president of the United States returned to the White House, at a safe distance from the mayhem that was to unfold.

Hogan still puzzled by delay in approval for Maryland National Guard assistance during Capitol riot

So, our Guard mobilized and was ready. But we couldn’t actually cross over the border into D.C. without the OK. And that was quite some time. We kept running it up the flagpole, our generals talking to the National Guard generals. And eventually, I got a call from Ryan McCarthy, the secretary of the Army, asking if we could come into the city. But we had already been mobilizing,

Donald Trump Jr. Video Shows Happy Family, Friends Backstage at Rally Prior to Capitol Riot That Killed 5

A video by Donald Trump Jr., the president’s son, showed Trump and members of his inner circle dancing, smiling, and watching television screens inside a private tent at Ellipse Park near the White House on Jan. 6, 2021. The footage was recorded roughly one hour before some supporters started breaking security barriers at the Capitol.
The screens inside the tent did not show supporters breaching or vandalizing the Capitol. Rather, they depicted a crowd gathering in front of a stage where Trump would later speak for 70 minutes. The president reportedly watched the peak of the insurrection on television from inside the White House.

Statement on Violence at the Capitol
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DATE: January 6, 2021
PRESS CONTACT: Chris Barron
(Washington, DC) – Today, hundreds of thousands of Americans flocked to Washington, DC to attend the “Save America Rally” hosted by Women for America First and attended by President Donald J. Trump.
Following the event held at the Ellipse, violence broke out at the Capitol. In response, Amy Kremer, Chairwoman of Women for America First, issued the following statement:
“We unequivocally denounce violence of any type and under any circumstances. We are saddened and disappointed at the violence that erupted on Capitol Hill, instigated by a handful of bad actors, that transpired after the rally.
“Unfortunately, for months the left and the mainstream media told the American people that violence was an acceptable political tool. They were wrong. It is not.
“We stand by and strongly support the men and women of the Capitol Hill police and law enforcement in general and our organization played absolutely no role in the unfortunate events that transpired.
“What is truly sad, is that the misdeeds of a handful of people will overshadow the overwhelming success of the peaceful event – attended by hundreds of thousands of Americans – that we sponsored today.
“The movement that was launched by President Donald J. Trump is one that respects the rule of law, supports our law enforcement and believes that violence has no place in politics today.”

These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long. Go home with & in peace. Remember this day forever!

Before that Tweet, Trump posted a video in which he said (according to Snopes.com):
I know your pain. Your hurt. We had an election that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election, and everyone knows it, especially the other side. But you have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order. We have to respect our great people in law and order. We don’t want anybody hurt. It’s a very tough period of time. There’s never been a time like this where such a thing happened where they could take it away from all of us. From me, from you and from our country.
This was a fraudulent election, but we can’t play into the hands of these people. We have to have peace. So, go home, we love you, you’re very special. You’ve seen what happens. You’ve seen the way others are treated that are so bad and so evil. I know how you feel. But go home and go home in peace.
