His 30,000+ lies won't end when he leaves. His #BigLie that the election was stolen caused the violent insurrection in the Capitol & his followers to reject @PresElectBiden. Time for @YouTube & @Facebook to remove his poisonous lies PERMANENTLY... NOW. #Ban_tRUMP_SaveDemocracy

Oh PLEASE! Those who violently besieged our capitol are EVERYTHING this administration stands for. Promoted on his social-media for months, supported in person on with an on-site speech. EVERYTHING he has ever said or done since coming down the escalator has been leading to this

Before Departing for Arizona, in reference to protesters trying to topple a statue of Andrew Jackson and to establish 'Black House Autonomous Zone'

We are looking at long term jail sentences for these vandals, these hoodlums and these anarchists, and agitators, call them whatever you want. Some people don’t like that language but that’s what they are. They’re bad people. They don’t love our country. And they are not taking down our monuments. I just want to make that clear.

Speaking from the White House

All Americans were rightly sickened and revolted by the brutal death of George Floyd. My administration is fully committed that, for George and his family, justice will be served. He will not have died in vain. But we cannot allow the righteous cries and peaceful protesters to be drowned out by an angry mob. The biggest victims of the rioting are peace-loving citizens in our poorest communities, and as their President, I will fight to keep them safe. I will fight to protect you. I am your President of law and order, and an ally of all peaceful protesters.

Whatever side you're on politically, 'left' or 'right', you don't need violent factions joining you or representing you. They bring your cause into disrepute. They don't even care about your cause, they're just in it for the violence. Denounce them.

Speaking to the press at Trump Tower in New York about the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville

But there is another side. There was a group on this side, you can call them the left, and you’ve just called them the left that came violently attacking the other group. I think there is blame on both sides and I have no doubt about it. And you don’t have any doubt about it. And if you report it accurately, you would say it.

In an interview with Reuters on the red carpet ahead of the premiere of his film, “The Wall", talking about the politicians' willingness to use violence

It’s a question that’s not being asked of our leaders often enough. If this film asks that question, at least in part, then it would be good. […] It’s a protest movie. It’s an anti-war, protest movie.
