Trump was ‘irate’ when he learned he cannot go to Capitol on January 6

Hutchinson has described a “very angry” Trump who got physical with White House staff when he learned that he cannot go to the Capitol after his speech at the Ellipse on January 6, 2021.

“I am the f***ing president. Take me to the Capitol now,” Trump told aides in the presidential vehicle, according to Hutchinson, who relied the information from then-White House deputy chief of staff Tony Ornato who was in the car.

Hutchinson cited Ornato as saying that Trump was “irate”.

She said Trump tried to grab the steering wheel, but Secret Service official Bobby Engel stopped him.

Vice chair Liz Cheney asked Americans to “reflect on that for a moment” and remember what Trump called on the crowd to do, knowing they were equipped with weapons and body armor.
