"...everybody, to the T, thought it was totally appropriate."

President Trump departing the White House for a tour on the Texas-Mexico border responding to a question by the White House Press Corp., “What is your role in what happened at the Capitol?”

Q Mr. President, what is your role in what happened at the Capitol? What is your personal responsibility?

THE PRESIDENT: So if you read my speech — and many people have done it, and I’ve seen it both in the papers and in the media, on television — it’s been analyzed, and people thought that what I said was totally appropriate.

And if you look at what other people have said — politicians at a high level — about the riots during the summer, the horrible riots in Portland and Seattle, in various other — other places, that was a real problem — what they said.

But they’ve analyzed my speech and words and my final paragraph, my final sentence, and everybody, to the T, thought it was totally appropriate.

Okay, thank you. Thank you.
