Alex Holder said that Donald Trump believes the election was stolen from him because he lives in an "alternative reality".

The attack on the Capitol by supporters of Trump that was fueled by his false claims that the election had been stolen from him was filmed by Holder.

According to an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Trump seemed to believe his claims. They were told by top officials that they were groundless and that they were rejected in a number of court cases.

He believed in his story. He had convinced himself that he had actually won, and that all the things he had been saying before the election came true.

I am not a Psychiatrist. This is not a rational player, that's what I think. There was no issue, according to Barr. He is going on and on about how there is no way President Biden got 80 million votes and that he needed to find brave judges.

He lives in an alternate reality and it's foolish to engage in that. It is similar to talking to a brick wall.

I thought it was frightening. The sitting President of the United States is in a diplomatic reception room at the White House with a guy with a nuclear football outside.

It was amazing that someone you can't converse with in a rational way is in charge of the United States.

The filmmaker was interviewed by the panel about his interactions with the Trump family during the period around the Capitol riot after his footage was subpoenaed.

His claims about Trump's state of mind after his defeat echo those from some aides to the president, with Barr writing in a recent book that Trump became detached from reality after his election defeat.

Whether Trump believed his fraud claims or cynically deployed them in the hope of retaining office could be crucial to his future.

Potential criminal charges could rest on Trump's state of mind, and he has said that he was acting sincerely to address legitimate concerns.

The January 6 committee argued that even if Trump didn't know his claims were false, he should have.

Trump was shown fixating on where a glass of water was placed in the film.

There is a documentary due to be shown on the Discover+ that has been denied by Trump.

An icon in the shape of a lightning bolt.
