Trump's Record

Undermining democracy and inciting violence

Years of dangerous rhetoric led to a violent attack on the heart of democracy.

After years of Trump administration officials echoing the president’s dangerous rhetoric and propagating his lies, Trump helped incite a violent mob attack at the U.S. Capitol, while he and his allies attempted to overturn the results of the 2020 election. 

  • Undermining elections: Donald Trump and members of his administration have incessantly tried to overturn the results of the 2020 election through baseless lawsuits, outright lies, and attempts to pressure political allies to overturn votes.
  • Inciting a violent mob: Trump and his allies’ repeated calls for his fervent supporters to fight back against the results of a free election process were hardened by the president’s incendiary speech that incited a riot at the U.S. Capitol.
