Trump Returns to Capitol Hill for First Time Since Jan. 6 Insurrection

HeadlineJun 14, 2024

Former President Donald Trump returned to the U.S. Capitol on Thursday for the first time since the January 6, 2021, insurrection. Trump met with Republican lawmakers. Among other things, he reportedly said, “Milwaukee, where we are having our convention, is a horrible city.” Trump narrowly lost Wisconsin to Biden in 2020 and has since falsely claimed election fraud in the state. This comes as Politico reports Trump called House Speaker Mike Johnson after he was convicted of 34 felonies in New York, and asked the GOP leader to help overturn the verdict and to help punish the Justice Department.
