Former President Donald Trump claimed his supporters involved in the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol posed “zero threat” and involved people “hugging and kissing the police.”One police officer was killed in the attack, and at least 138 suffered injuries that included burns, concussions and fractures.The Capitol was overrun with a mob attempting to stop the certification of Democrat Joe Biden’s Electoral College win.The former president also claimed his arrested supporters were being “persecuted” for involvement in the violence.
