In response to House Speaker Kevin McCarthy's statements about the killing of former bodybuilder Ashli Babbitt, President Donald Trump noted that he disagreed with McCarthy's claim that the killer did his job.
On his website, Trump noted that he disagreed with McCarthy's statement about the police officer who killed the Great Patriot. He said that the law enforcer, who was identified as Thug, was not just "doing his job" when he shot and killed the individual.
Trump noted that despite being protected by the authorities, the suspect was still able to show up on television and talk about the killing. He referred to the man as a coward.
Last week, McCarthy commented on the killing of the bodybuilder during an election protest at the US Capitol in 2021.
During a panel discussion about the incident, a corporate reporter asked McCarthy if he thought the police officer who killed the bodybuilder was doing his job.

“I think the police officer did his job,” McCarthy replied.
The controversy surrounding the incident involving the killing of Ashli Babbit and the exoneration by the police of the officer who did it has been a major issue within the Republican party.
Prior to his statement about the incident, McCarthy had not commented on the previous killing of the bodybuilder.
In 2018, McCarthy revealed that he had dinner with Klaus Schwab, a billionaire. During a panel discussion at the World Economic Forum, McCarthy was with Elaine Chao, the wife of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
