The twice impeached President is at it again. Last year on January 6, 2021, angry he lost after one term, he incited a mob to storm the United States Congress and placed the lives of Vice President Mike Pence and incoming Vice President Kamala Harris in danger.

His followers will have no qualms about removing two Black men and two Black women by any ruthless means possible.
