Earlier today, President Trump released a brief statement saying there must be “NO violence” at protests (Allahpundit mentioned it here). This afternoon the President released a five-minute video in which he expanded upon the earlier statement.
“I want to be very clear,” Trump said. “I unequivocally condemn the violence that we saw last week. Violence and vandalism have absolutely no place in our country and no place in our movement.
“Making America great again has always been about defending the rule of law, supporting the men and women of law enforcement and upholding our nation’s most sacred traditions and values. Mob violence goes against every I believe in and everything our movement stands for.”
“No true supporter of mine could ever endorse political violence,” Trump said. He continued, “No true supporter of mine could ever disrespect law enforcement or our great American flag. No true supporter of mine could ever threaten or harass their fellow Americans. If you do any of these things you are not supporting our movement, you are attacking it and you are attacking our country.’
As my friend Jeryl Bier pointed out, that’s the “No true Scotsman” fallacy in action. We’ve seen the video clips. Trump supporters did attack police officers and one of thos officers died.
