Conspiracy theorists think President Trump was communicating a secret message using morse code in his most recent video addressing the Capitol riots.
Keep scrolling to see what exactly theorists think he was saying...
That's right. The conspiracy theories are out in full force...
Let's just say, after watching the footage, some people are convinced.
Now, where do we even start when it comes to the Capitol Hill riots?
It all started on January 6th when President Donald Trump held a "Save America" rally in Washington D.C, just a few miles away from the White House.
Thousands of his eager supporters were there listening to and latching on to every word that came out of Trump's mouth.
The president repeatedly told his crowd that he was "the real winner" and how they need to "take the election back"...
Before finally telling them to "go down to the Capitol building" and "fight like hell for our country."
He even said he'd be there alongside them which, of course, he didn't mean literally.
This resulted in thousands of his supporters, all armed with MAGA merchandise and Trump flags, storming down to the U.S Capitol building and breaking in...
Where hell was well and truly unleashed.
A joint session of Congress was underway to certify Joe Biden's election win when the rioters made their way into the building.

Thankfully, all members of the House and staff were safely evacuated but this didn't mean things were over.
People began smashing down windows and doors, looting valuable items, and even breaking into Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's office and taking some of her personal posessions.
And to make things even more terrifying...
Text messages were later discovered from one of the rioters describing his plans to "shoot and run over" Nancy Pelosi.
Thankfully, these terrible plans didn't go ahead - but it just goes to show the alarming ideologies and ambitions held by many of the people present on that day.
5 people tragically died as a result of the riots...
And more than sixty police officers and security guards were greatly injured from trying to stop the violent rioters and get them out of the building.
The scenes were truly apocalyptic...
And President Trump was called on again and again to issue a televised statement telling his supporters to put an end to the violence.
In the end, he issued a series of small tweets where he reminded the rioters that the police and law enforcement were "on our side," and to "remain peaceful."
He eventually tweeted a video telling his supporters to "go home"...

Several hours later he called for the crowd to "go home" before adding: "We love you. You’re very special," ⤵️ pic.twitter.com/u7qgrnJYKh
All while reminding them that they're "very special" and that he "loves them."
Of course, this wasn't taken well by the very shaken-up members of Congress and it really didn't help that Trump was refusing to take responsibility for the riots.
The president's reluctance to take responsibility then lead to him being suspended indefinitely from all major social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram...

Of course, we all know how much Trump loved to run his mouth on Twitter, so this was a huge deal.
Things just seemed to be getting worse and worse for Trump...
And alongside hundreds of his supporters being arrested and charged for their involvement in the riots, Congress were having some serious talks about what to do about his lack of concern over the violence caused by his army of followers.
It didn't take long for Pelosi to prepare a vote to impeach Trump for the second time in his first presidential term...
And even though Vice-President Mike Pence refused to invoke the 25th amendment, which is what would have removed Trump from office immediately, it was voted shortly afterward to go forward with the impeachment.
On the evening of January 13th, President Trump was officially impeached, making him the only president in U.S history to be impeached more than once.
The final vote was 232-197, as per The Guardian, though the matter is yet to go before the Senate which will decide whether he should be convicted and removed from office.
Trump broke his silence just hours after the House of Representatives charged him with inciting an insurrection against the government by releasing a speech - all while reversing his tone about the crisis.
In the prerecorded remarks, posted late on Wednesday afternoon, he "unequivocally condemn[ed]" last week's deadly riot at the Capitol and went on to call for cooler heads and cooler words and a sense of national unity to prevail.
But it seems the video attracted attention for a very different reason...
Because conspiracy theorists now think the president used Morse code to communicate a secret message to them.
Now, in the clip, Trump stressed that no supporter of his would ever "endorse political violence" or "disrespect law enforcement or our great American flag."
And that the violence on January 6th "goes against everything [he] believe[s] in."
But conspiracy theorists believe this wasn't the only message the president was trying to communicate...
And let's just say, some people are convinced Trump was communicating a whole secret message using morse code.
Now, Trump spends most of the video with his hands crossed in front of him.
But, towards the end, he broke them apart to make gestures as he said:
"All of us can choose, by our actions, to rise above the rancor and find common ground."
Of course, to the average viewer, these gestures would just add emphasis to his words.
But followers of QAnon had a very different interpretation - believing these gestures were actually an attempt to signal them using Morse code.
Theories about Trump's hand gestures and what they mean first surfaced upon a QAnon-focused forum called the Great Awakening.
Morse code just permanently banned Trump.— Erin Foley (@erinfoleycomic) January 14, 2021
According to Vice, the poster claimed that Trump's hand movements represented "dash-dash-dot-dash."
For anyone not fluent in Morse code...
That sequence represents the letter Q.
Now, of course, there's no denying these claims are very far-reaching.
But, alongside the Morse code theory, his supporters have also suggested that he may be preparing to send them a message using the Emergency Broadcast System, which provides the president a means of communicating with the American public in the event of war or grave national crisis.
But really - what would "Q" actually mean?
I think most people would agree that the hand movements were, well, little more than just hand movements.
