Donald Trump has lashed out at Kevin McCarthy after the House speaker rejected the suggestion that January 6 rioter Ashli Babbitt was "murdered." In a post in Truth Social, the former president said he "totally" disagrees with comments McCarthy gave to reporters. The speaker was asked whether he backs Georgia congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene's assessment of Babbitt's death. During a meeting of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee on Tuesday, Greene suggested that Babbitt was "murdered" by the officer and that "no one in this Congress has really addressed that issue." When asked if he agreed with the sentiment shared by Greene, who has formed a key alliance with the House speaker in recent weeks, McCarthy dismissed the idea, adding "I think the police officer [Byrd] did his job."

In a social-media post, Trump has criticized McCarthy for the comments and also launched a series of attacks against Byrd.
"I totally disagree with the Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy, in that the Police Officer 'Thug,' who has had a very checkered past to begin with, was not just 'doing his job' when he shot and killed Great Patriot Ashli Babbitt at point blank range," Trump wrote on Truth Social.
