During the recent period, ex-US President Donald Trump organized a “Save America” gathering in Conroe, Texas to affirm his plan to compete for re-election in the upcoming 2024 Presidential race. Despite Trump facing impeachment by the house due to his involvement in the incidents of January 6th, 2021, where a multitude of his followers breached the United States Capitol in a bid to nullify the election results, he was eventually absolved of any guilt, thus maintaining his eligibility to seek office again.

In relation to the Jan. 6 upheaval and riot, Trump assured that, should he secure victory in 2024, he would grant presidential pardons to individuals who have been apprehended for their involvement in the assault.

“Should I decide to run and emerge victorious, we shall extend equitable treatment to those individuals from January 6th,” Trump remarked on Saturday. “And if the circumstances necessitate pardons, we shall issue them as they are being subjected to unjust treatment.”

Presently, more than 700 individuals have been arrested and accused of various federal offenses in connection with their participation in the riot as part of an ongoing investigation conducted by the United States Department of Justice, marking it as the most extensive inquiry in the department’s history. To provide multiple instances, over 150 persons have been charged with assaulting a law enforcement officer, and over 50 have been charged with plotting against the US government.

Despite the havoc and harm caused by those individuals confirmed to be his allies, Trump has chosen not to disown those complicit in the uprising, opting instead to laud them for their allegiance to him.
