( –  Former President Trump recently targeted former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) after she described him as “dangerous” and “evil” during a Sunday interview, following his misleading statements about the January 6, 2021, Capitol riots.

During two television interviews on Sunday, Pelosi criticized Trump for attributing the lack of Capitol security on January 6 to her during a debate the previous week.

In an interview Pelosi refuted Trump’s debate assertions, highlighting that he was the one who “would not send the National Guard” to the Capitol on that day.

“His actions on January 6th led to death and injury. He is a dangerous and evil person,” Pelosi stated on MSNBC.

She reiterated her rebuttal on CNN’s “State of the Union,” emphasizing, “This president lied about January 6. It was a catastrophic event in our nation’s history. As a former president, he sparked an insurrection and is now trying to shift the blame onto me.”

Trump responded to Pelosi’s critique on his platform, Truth Social.

“Crazy Nancy Pelosi was recently revealed by her filmmaker daughter as being fully accountable for the security shortfall on January 6th. She’s, in my opinion, more cognitively impaired than Crooked Joe Biden,” he posted.

He added, “Her recent interview showed she was totally out of touch. Furthermore, she suffers from TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME, which in her case is severe and terminal! She has always been a problematic figure.”

During the debate, Trump asserted that Pelosi rejected his offer to deploy 10,000 additional National Guard troops to the Capitol on January 6. However, fact-checking, indicated this claim was inaccurate, as the Speaker did not have the authority to request or deny troop deployments.

Trump referred to a recent video released by the GOP-led House Oversight and Accountability Committee, shot by Pelosi’s daughter, Alexandria, for a documentary on the former Speaker. In it, Pelosi discusses the security preparations for January 6 while in a car, stating, “I should have prepared more, it’s foolish not to have anticipated such a situation.” She also questioned the initial absence of the National Guard.

The complete video has yet to be made public, and it does not show Pelosi admitting she declined additional troop support. Ian Krager, Pelosi’s spokesperson, responded to Trump’s allegations, clarifying, “The former Speaker is not responsible for Capitol security.”

Krager condemned the persistent attempts by Trump and his supporters to reinterpret the January 6 insurrection: “It’s shameful that, three years later, they continue to attempt to revise the grim realities of that day. Americans who witnessed the threats to our democracy firsthand can see through this revisionist history.”
