Former President Donald Trump has in private conversations been calling some of the police officers who defended the Capitol on January 6 "pussies," The Daily Beast reported.

More than 200 officers with the US Capitol Police and Washington, DC, Metropolitan Police Department were injured as a result of clashes with pro-Trump supporters on January 6, police and union officials have said.

In the months since the insurrection, multiple officers have recounted their horror and accused Trump of lying about the nature of the riot.


But according to sources who spoke with The Daily Beast, Trump believes a number of officers who worked that day were weak, and called them "pussies."

The former president has on occasion expressed pity for some officers who worked that day, but has also said that he believes the events of January 6 "broke" several officers because they weren't tough enough, The Daily Beast reported.

According to the report, Trump also believes that some of the police officers are willingly becoming tools of Democratic politicians like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

It is unclear to which officers Trump was referring.


... The Daily Beast reported that Trump made the disparaging remarks about the police officers some weeks before the hearing began.
