Donald Trump Jr. commented on the recent home invasion and attack on Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, saying it should motivate Democrats to address violent crime more seriously.
In a post on Truth Social Saturday afternoon, the former president’s son accused Democratic lawmakers of not doing enough to help ordinary citizens, given their wide reaction to Friday’s break-in.
“Imagine how safe the country would be if democrats took all violent crime as seriously as they’re taking the Paul Pelosi situation,” Trump Jr. wrote to his 2.6 million followers on the platform.
“They simply don’t care about you,” he added in the post.
The same message was posted to Trump Jr.’s Twitter, where he has 8.6 million followers.
On Saturday, Speaker Pelosi also issued a statement on Friday’s assault, saying she was “heartbroken” to hear that a “violent man” attacked her husband.
“Yesterday morning, a violent man broke into our family home, demanded to confront me and brutally attacked my husband Paul. Our children, our grandchildren and I are heartbroken and traumatized by the life-threatening attack on our Pop. We are grateful for the quick response of law enforcement and emergency services, and for the life-saving medical care he is receiving,” she said in the “Dear Colleague” letter to members of Congress on Saturday.
She said her family has received an “outpouring” of support from members of Congress and others. Pelosi also wrote that her husband’s “condition continues to improve.”
“Please know that the outpouring of prayers and warm wishes from so many in Congress is a comfort to our family and is helping Paul make progress with his recovery. His condition continues to improve,” Pelosi wrote.
She concluded: “We thank you and pray for the continued safety and well-being of your family,” Pelosi wrote.
