(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) After the Capitol Police booted a children’s choir from the U.S. Capitol for singing the national anthem, former President Donald Trump invited the group to sing at his next South Carolina rally, the Charleston Post and Courier reported.
On Friday, while singing the “Star-Spangled Banner,” the Rushingbrook Children’s Choir from Greenville, South Carolina, was silenced by “certain Capitol police,” who “said it might offend someone/cause issues,” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., observed on Twitter.

In response to the Capitol Police’s disciplinary actions, Trump posted a video inviting the Rushingbrook Children’s Choir to join him at his next rally in their home state.
“It’s a really, it’s a serious thing to have an event like that—such a beautiful time in your lives and such an important time in your lives—to be interrupted in such a way,” Trump said, noting that they will be able to perform for a massive audience.
“But we are going to have you in South Carolina, and you’re going to sing in a rally for us in front of tens of thousands of people,” he continued. “And we’re all going to have a great time together.”
In contrast to Biden Democrats, who consistently in their words and actions have put America last, Trump emphasized that “we love our country,” and that “we’re going to pay respect to those people that love it. And nobody loves it more than you.”
After hinting at an upcoming South Carolina rally, the former president officially invited the group to sing at the event.
“You’re going to be there,” he said, thanking the children “for loving America.”
David Rasbach, director of the choir, said that Trump’s invitation was “quite an honor” for both him and the children of the choir.
“I wouldn’t even think of turning him down,” he added.
