Trump Responds After McCarthy Says Cop Who Killed Ashli Babbitt Was “Doing His Job”


House Speaker Kevin McCarthy stated he believed the police officer who shot and killed Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt was “just doing his job”.

After Trump caught wind of McCarthy’s statement he immediately responded.

President Trump stated “I totally disagree with the Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy, in that the Police Officer “Thug,” who has had a very checkered past to begin with, was not just “doing his job” when he shot and killed Great Patriot Ashli Babbitt at point blank range.”

Trump would continue “He was not a hero but a COWARD, who wanted to show how tough he was. ASHLI BABBITT WAS MURDERED!!!”

The Hill had these details to add:

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) broke with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) on Thursday when asked about the death of Ashli Babbitt, who was shot and killed by Capitol police during the Jan. 6, 2021, attack, concluding she was not murdered, as Greene has said.


“I think the police officer did his job,” McCarthy told reporters when asked if he agreed with Greene that Babbitt was murdered.

Babbitt’s case came back into the spotlight this week when Greene compared her case with that of Tyre Nichols, the 29-year-old Black man who died after being beaten by officers in Memphis.

Here was Trump’s full statement:
