Trump was 'manifestly false' in claiming the Capitol rioters posed 'zero threat,' said his former chief of staff
  • Trump's former chief of staff said it was "manifestly false" of the ex-president to suggest the Capitol rioters posed "zero threat."
  • Trump claimed last week that the rioters on January 6 posed "zero threat."
  • Five people including a police officer died as a result of the attack.
Mick Mulvaney, who resigned as the White House special envoy to Northern Ireland after the deadly January 6 riot, told CNN that he was "surprised" to hear the president say his supporters were "hugging and kissing" police officers. Five people, including a police officer, died as a result of the attack.

"I was surprised to hear the President say that," Mulvaney told CNN.

"Clearly there were people who were behaving themselves, and then there were people who absolutely were not, but to come out and say that everyone was fine and there was no risk, that's just manifestly false — people died, other people were severely injured."

"It's not right to say there was no risk. I don't know how you can say that when people were killed," he said.
