Former President Donald Trump reposted a meme on Truth Social that suggested the government led the Capitol riot on January 6, despite the fact that he was president at the time.
The meme, which Mr Trump “re-truthed,” said: “January 6 will go down in history as the day the government staged a riot to cover up the fact that they certified a fraudulent election.”.
The meme has been liked nearly 9,000 times and shared 2,400 times as of Monday.
The former president shared the meme despite a House committee that investigated January 6 declaring Mr Trump the “ central cause ” of the day’s events.
“None of the events of January 6th would have happened without him,” the House panel wrote in its final report.
A number of his colleagues have hesitated in calling out his actions – or inaction – leading up to the Capitol attack.
