Zeeshan Aleem, a political analyst for MSNBC, claims that Donald Trump's promise to pardon the Jan. 6 rioters if he is elected again in 2024 is nothing
less than a call to arms for another Capitol uprising, with true believers believing they will be absolved of all crimes if they help him seize power.
The former president admitted earlier this week to backing some of the Jan. 6 rioters financially and told far-right Newsmax anchor Wendy Bell,
"It's a travesty what they've done to them. If I win, I will be thinking very, very strongly about pardons, complete pardons."
Aleem claims that those remarks not only provide hope to individuals who have been found guilty of rioting and property damage,
among other offences, but will also be seen as a promise to a new group of supporters who want to see him reinstalled in the White House.
