Trump privately blamed ‘Antifa people’ for storming US Capitol

WASHINGTON (REUTERS) – US President Donald Trump has privately blamed ‘Antifa people’ for storming the US Capitol last Wednesday (Jan 6), even though clear video and documentary evidence exists showing the rioters were overwhelmingly his supporters, Axios reported.

Trump made the remark in a 30-minute-plus phone call Monday morning with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Axios reported, citing a White House official and another source familiar with the call.
