Video reveals MAGA hat-wearing Trump supporters asking Capitol Police officers to stop rioters from breaking into the U.S. Capitol and ultimately being ignored.
The video, from a Daily Caller compilation, shows a Trump supporter repeatedly telling police dressed in riot gear to “call for backup.”
“Why are you letting this happen? Why haven’t you called for backup? Where is your backup? This is our damn Capitol building, and y’all are letting it get destroyed on your watch,” the man adds.
The video comes as former Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund reveals he “asked House and Senate security officials for permission to request that the D.C. National Guard be placed on standby in case he needed quick backup” – a request that was ultimately denied.
The video also shows Trump supporters screaming “we don’t break shit” at violent protestors.
