President Trump earlier in the week sent out one of his shortest statements ever and it read “who shot Ashli Babbitt?”.
Well, last night at his rally in Sarasota ,Florida he asked the same question “who shot Ashli Babbitt?”.
Trump then went on to say that he talked to Ashli Babbitt’s mother recently and said that her mother is devastated
He continued if Babbitt was from the “other side” then the officer’s name would be released immediately.
Trump then switched gears and asked the crowd how come there are still so many people in jail from January 6th but nobody ever paid a price for the fires and looting that occurred in Democrat cities
Watch the moment he said it here:
"Who shot Ashli Babbitt?"

The Nation File covered the story and added these details:
At his campaign style speech in Sarasota, Florida, 45th President Donald Trump mentioned Ashli Babbitt, the Air Force Veteran slain on January 6, for the first time publicly. President Trump revealed that he met with Babbitt’s grieving family, and also asked why so many January 6 protesters are still in jail, and slammed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for refusing to fight for them.
While discussing “weak” Republican leaders like McConnell, President Trump suddenly changed the subject. “And by the way, who shot Ashli Babbitt? Who shot AShli Babbitt? Who? Who shot Ashli Babbitt? We all saw the hand, we saw the gun,” said President Trump. “I spoke to her mother the other day, an incredible woman, she’s just devastated, like it happened yesterday, devastated.”
Imagine if a liberal protestor was shot when they stormed the Supreme Court and the Capitol in 2018 during the Kavanaugh hearings
The officer responsible for the shooting would be identified immediately and the person shot would probably have a statue like George Floyd by now.
