Former President Donald Trump commemorated Ashli Babbitt, a veteran fatally shot by a Capitol Police officer on Jan. 6, in a prerecorded video to mark what would have been her 36th birthday.
Trump also demanded “justice” for Babbitt and called for the Department of Justice to reopen its investigation into her death.
The personalized message was reportedly played at a “Texas Loves Ashli Babbitt” rally on Sunday, an event in which Babbitt’s friends and family celebrated her life while criticizing Democrats, according to a Twitter broadcast shared by journalist Ford Fischer.
Others on Twitter also shared the video.
In the video, Trump called Babbitt “a truly incredible person.”
“On that horrible day of January 6, Ashli arrived at the United States Capitol,” Trump said in the video. “She was shot and tragically killed. Today would’ve been her birthday. Happy birthday, Ashli.”
“To Ashli’s family and friends, please know that her memory will live on in our hearts for all time,” Trump said, citing Babbitt’s service in the military, including her time in Iraq.
He continued: “Together, we grieve her terrible loss. There was no reason Ashli should’ve lost her life that day. We must all demand justice for Ashli and her family, so, on this solemn occasion as we celebrate her life, we renew our call for a fair and nonpartisan investigation into the death of Ashli Babbitt.”
“I call on the Department of Justice to reopen its investigation into her death on January 6,” Trump concluded. He added that her loved ones and Americans “deserve a fair process, you deserve answers and you deserve justice.”
