Trump cancels January 6th news conference

Today it was announced that Trump canceled his news conference for January 6th, blaming it on the “total bias and dishonesty” of Pelosi’s hack January 6th committee:

FOX 8 – Former President Donald Trump has canceled a press conference he had planned to hold in Florida on the anniversary of the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol by his supporters.

Trump said in a statement Tuesday evening that he would instead be discussing his grievances at a rally he has planned in Arizona later this month.

Trump had been expected to use the press conference to rail against the congressional committee investigating the events of Jan. 6, when a mob of his supporters violently stormed the Capitol in an effort to halt the peaceful transfer of power, and to repeat his lies about the 2020 election.

“In light of the total bias and dishonesty of the January 6th Unselect Committee of Democrats, two failed Republicans, and the Fake News Media, I am canceling the January 6th Press Conference at Mar-a-Lago on Thursday, and instead will discuss many of those important topics at my rally on Saturday, January 15th, in Arizona,” Trump wrote.

Lindsey Graham is reportedly taking credit for talking Trump into cancelling the event:

BUSINESS INSIDER – In an interview with Axios on Tuesday night, Graham said he was among several people, including Fox News host Laura Ingraham, who encouraged Trump to ax the event.

Graham, according to Axios, regularly plays golf with Trump and spoke to Trump about canceling the press conference during a match over the weekend.

When Trump brought up the now-canceled press conference, Graham said he told the president “there could be peril in doing a news conference” and that it was “best to focus on election reform instead,” according to Axios.

House and Senate leaders were “quietly relieved” after Trump released a statement on Twitter on Tuesday through his spokeswoman Liz Harrington, calling off the January 6 event.

I loved the fact that Trump was refusing to allow the media to set the narrative, but I get why he’s canceling it.
