During the event, Trump praised the rioters and condemned their imprisonment, telling a crowd of his supporters, "You see this spirit from the hostages? And that’s what they are, as hostages. They’ve been treated terribly and very unfairly, and you know that, and everybody knows that."

Trump further pledged to address their situation promptly upon entering office, emphasizing his support for them as "unbelievable patriots."

In an interview on Face the Nation with CBS' Margaret Brennan on Sunday, Pence voiced his disapproval of Trump's remarks, particularly highlighting the inappropriateness of referring to individuals involved in legal proceedings as "hostages."

“I think it’s very unfortunate at a time that there are American hostages being held in Gaza. That the president or any other leaders would refer to people that are moving through our justice system as hostages," the former vice president told the host. "It’s just unacceptable!”

“The assaults on police officers, ultimately an environment that claimed lives, is something that I think was tragic. And I’ll never diminish it.," the former vice president added.

Pence is right, given the real rioters were FBI plants. As for the political prisoners, the recent ruling that more than 100 J6 prisoners were over-sentenced reinforces Trump's statement.
