Colorado Democratic Rep. Jason Crow said that if President Trump wanted to stop the threat of any more violence in the US, he would say “outright” that President-elect Joe Biden won the 2020 election.
“The President has been building this; he has been radicalizing his most fringe supporters. He started with dog whistles and now this outright rhetoric by him and his top supporters. So talk is really cheap right now,” Crow said in reaction to Trump releasing a video calling for calm.
“If he wants to de-escalate, he will stop these conspiracy theories, he will attempt to try to de-radicalize his supporters, and he will say that outright. I'm not holding my breath,” Crow added in an interview with CNN’s Kate Bolduan.
Crow also said “we are on the right path” to making sure the inauguration will be secure on Jan. 20. “We're almost there,” he said.
