45 took to Twitter shortly after Chicago PD wrapped up their press conference, Smollett directly, “what about MAGA and the tens of millions of people you insulted with your racist and dangerous comments!?”
Trump took Smollett’s claim, that the attackers shouted “This is MAGA country!,” personally, as it’s directly associated with his “Make America Great Again” platform.
The MAGA claim was reported by a few media outlets immediately after the incident happened, but was not initially reported by Smollett. However, he did confirm the information during a supplemental interview with investigators.
Video of the Usondairo brothers loading up on supplies also showed them appearing to purchase red hats, which have become synonymous with Trump’s MAGA hats.
As we reported, police in Chicago claim Smollett staged the attack because he was “dissatisfied” with his “Empire” salary. They called the star “despicable” and eviscerated him during the presser for allegedly concocting the “shameful” crime.
