Trump said the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt is a Thug with a checkered past. What are your thoughts, and should other Republicans follow suit?

Today former President Trump posted the following on Truth Social:

“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. Despite trying to keep him anonymous, shielded, and protected, this MISFIT proudly showed up on NBC Fake Nightly News “bragging” about the killing. He was not a hero but a COWARD, who wanted to show how tough he was. ASHLI BABBITT WAS MURDERED!!!”

My questions are:

  1. Do you agree with Trump’s statement? Is the police officer a thug who murdered Babbitt? Why or why not?
  2. Should other Republican officials follow Trump’s Lead, orMcCarthy’s?
  3. Should other Republican Presidential candidates also accuse the capital police officer of murder? Why or why not? Will it matter for your primary vote?

Thank you for your thoughts.
