Karl Rove: Law-and-Order Trump Has an Evil Twin

From a Wall Street Journal commentary by Karl Rove headlined “Law-and-Order Trump Has an Evil Twin”:

Which Donald Trump is running for president? When it comes to law and order, there are two.

There’s the Donald Trump who said the day after the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol that he was “outraged by the violence, lawlessness and mayhem.” This Mr. Trump then declared, “America is, and must always be, a nation of law and order. The demonstrators who infiltrated the Capitol have defiled the seat of American democracy.” He spoke directly to “those who engaged in the acts of violence and destruction,” saying “you do not represent our country. And to those who broke the law, you will pay.”
