Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) proposed that Donald Trump might be fading immediately after the Justice for J6 flop.

Swalwell mentioned to CNN’s Jim Acosta:
The police confirmed up in force, and they had the presence that they should have experienced on January 6th, thinking about what Donald Trump was promising, and I imagine that could have been a deterrent. Also, possibly Donald Trump’s skill to encourage persons to show up on his behalf might also be fading.
But that doesn’t signify we should allow our guard down. I really truly feel, while, Jim, for the law enforcement officers who stood guard there right now, who also stood guard at the Capitol, and could have suffered injuries on January 6th. This should have been triggering and traumatizing, and this vigil is held at a time when 1, these men and women are not deserving of a vigil, but two, a lot of officers have not yet even returned to the capitol from the injuries they suffered. So it would be like having a September 11th vigil, for the hijackers.
Rep. Swalwell may perhaps be correct. There is going to be some lessening of Trump’s capacity to incite. He no longer has his Twitter platform and the White Home to push his concept. Swalwell was also right that we just cannot allow up. Domestic terrorists only have to be prosperous once, but the American persons have to be vigilant at all moments.
Trump may perhaps be on the downhill slide, but he and his radicalized supporters signify the greatest domestic terror danger that the country faces,
