Former President Trump criticized the ongoing protests at college campuses across the country, specifically referencing the recent takeover of a building at Columbia University.

He questioned whether the students involved would face similar consequences to those who stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Trump expressed concern about the destruction and damage caused by the protests, and implied that the students were being treated leniently compared to the January 6 rioters.

Trump has been vocal about his disapproval of the protests, which he believes are a result of the Biden administration‘s handling of the Israel-Hamas war. He has also drawn parallels between the campus protests and the 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

This is not the first time Trump has shown sympathy for the January 6 rioters, and he has previously stated that he would prioritize releasing those imprisoned for their involvement in the riots if he were to be reelected. His comments have sparked controversy and raised concerns about his stance on violent protests and the rule of law.

The protests at Columbia University and other campuses have resulted in arrests and disruptions, with some students barricading themselves in buildings and chanting pro-Palestinian slogans.

The university has taken measures to ensure safety, including closing the campus to non-essential personnel. The situation remains tense, with Trump’s comments likely to further polarize opinions on the matter.
