Trump calls governors ‘weak,’ urges them to crack down on riots in leaked call

President Trump has come out swinging against Democrat governors and mayors that have either refused to or been unable to quell the violent riots wracking the nation.

In a private video conference in the Situation Room of the White House on Monday, Trump gave the order for Democrat leaders to crack down on the violence, saying that “the only time it [rioting] is successful is when you’re weak, and most of you are weak.”

Details of the call were immediately leaked to the press. CBS reporter Ed O’Keefe tweeted that Trump told governors that “You have to dominate; if you don’t dominate you’re wasting your time. They’re going to run over you, you’re going to look like a bunch of jerks. You have to dominate.”

He reportedly continued to blast leaders’ weak responses to the rapidly escalating violence, telling them:

You’ve got to arrest people, you have to track people, you have to put them in jail for 10 years and you’ll never see this stuff again. You know when other countries watch this, they’re watching this, the next day, “wow, they’re really a pushover.” And we can’t be a pushover. And we have all the resources – it’s not like we don’t have the resources. So, I don’t know what you’re doing.

Trump has come out swinging against the protests-turned-riots in recent days, announcing on Sunday that he will designate violent leftist group ANTIFA as a terrorist organization due to the movement’s suspected role in the hijacking of the initially peaceful protests.

National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien also announced on Sunday that the Trump administration will allow mayors and governors to set the terms for the response to the riot, but will be ready to step in and help if needed. “We’re not going to federalize the [National] Guard at this time,” O’Brien told reporters on Sunday. “But, if necessary, we have further military assets that can be deployed … if the governors and the mayors need it and they can’t get control of the situation.”

Much like the coronavirus response, Trump has chosen to encourage governors and mayors to lead the way in controlling the outbreaks of violence in their cities, but O’Brien indicated that the federal government will provide “whatever the governors or mayors need to keep control of their cities.”

Likely FEW PEOPLE truly appreciate the QUALITY of the President, Donald J. Trump! FOR years, America has been periodically governed by men who could not recognize their own face in the mirror! They pictured themselves as someone FAR ABOVE whom they actually saw! Then comes Donald J. Trump! The Man sent to our FAILING country! Thank You both Clintons, Obama & Admin (John Gruber-Mr. Insurance?), All LOSERS! NOW when we are finally BLESSED with a man who Draws Quick and Shoots Straight… many do not know how to react… so they default to a negative response! So there we have 3 MAJOR negatives: Clintons, Obama his Admin. What to do? asks Mr. TRUMP… ANSWER: “DRAW QUICK…SHOOT STRAIGHT!”
and folks; that’s exactly what our President, Donald J. Trump, does! That’s his “M.O.”

About time, these jerks looting and rioting are domestic terrorist to say the least. Personally I would begin shooting on site,, and yes I do understand what that entails, yet when the society has been broken down to this degree there are few options.

Tim,
I am afraid you are correct..Many of the people in these so-called “protest groups” have been hired by the likes of soros and the DNC to do what they are doing, MOST are not even from the cities they are destroying and most don’t even know what or who they are “protesting” for, or about (and don’t care) ..They have been “bused in” and TOLD to do what they are “HIRED” to do. Unfortunately, the time has come to lock and load and start “leveling” a few out, that way, the “survivors” will again run back to their “basement safe spaces” and play with their coloring books and crayons again, rather than be eliminated.

Philip, that is a foolish comment.

Whenever there is the threat of violence, the First family follows the Secret Service guidance and protocols. Every First family has and should.

President Trump has addressed the Nation several times, on several subjects. When he deems it appropriate he will do so again, that’s strength, not weakness.

These common criminals (rioters, looters…don’t deserve any special attention, except to be arrested and incarcerated for a long, long time.

nothing Trump said will taken serious because of individuals like you Philip who want to blame Trump for everything. When we started fighting Corona virus The House told Trump he had to let the states handle it. He feels that is the same thing the Dems want to do now only they really want our country to be socialist. So the Dems don’t care. A man was murdered and do you think he would want this to happen no he would want the individual put in jail as he is.

This nation is going to go to shambles, IF – as President Reagan warned – “WE EVER FORGET THAT WE ARE ONE NATION U N D E R GOD, WE WILL BE ONE NATION GONE UNDER”.

Yes the protesters had a message and was delivered by more just the black communities. Most Americans were appalled and disgusted by the senseless death we watched and stand peacefully united that police brutality gets addressed. The chaos mongers, arsonists, and looters… also must be viewed and condemned. Law and Order will prevail.

To President Trump,
Get your strength out and control this country before the rioters control us. When the Governors are weak, you need to be strong. That the bull by the horn and bring this country back. No more lockdowns. People need to get exposed to build antibodies to wipe this virus out. These rioters have also been on lockdown and. Is they are saying no more. They used a death to get out. The wrong way, but they got your attention. Throw them out if jail. Put the prisoners who were let out, back into jail and bring degnity back to the United States.

I was once a democrat, after voting for Obama twice, I couldn’t take it anymore. Obama encouraged lawlessness, he wanted race wars and he encouraged a war against law enforcement. Unlike Obama, President Trump has become a President of law and order and he follows the US Constitution. It is the Governors responsibility to Govern their states affairs. I hole heartedly believe if the Governors can’t or won’t do their job and the POTUS needs to step in, then so be it and then recall that Governor, that Governor has proven they are not fit to be in that position.

Police know that blacks aren’t all responsible for the destruction. There have been outside forces at work, bringing in weapons to aid in the destruction and attacking cops. Someone (like George Soros) has paid Antifa forces from out of state to instigate the violence, arson, and further destruction. They should be arrested for looting and destruction of private property. This kind of destruction has been promoted by Democrats, since the days of Rodney King. Democrats allow the destruction to get out of hand for political leverage against Republicans. It’s time to stop the violence, with stiff prison sentences. It will stop these little cowards being protected by Democrat mayors and governors, from wanting to have their fun.

I live in Minnesota, I watch our governor, mayor of Minneapolis, Fail the people and lets this grow the national guards should have been deployed on Wednesday not wait till Saturday, this was a total lack of leadership… it seem that they wanted this to escalate, just the posting they took, and then the mayor said it was the KKK doing all the damage, witch is a bunch of bull… it was ANTIFA I saw them well organized all of them wearing earpiece’s and communicating, and the worst thing was the media adding fuel to there cause. Protesters during the day calm. Night came ANTIFA took over and some sheep followed. My thoughts but the media should be charged of terrorism. they are not reporting they are opposing there thoughts.. and that’s wrong !!!!!!

The entire country did not decide to riot over the killing of 1 black man. But, this has been going on for decades and the entire country if fed up with the government. These officers are part of the government and only served as a spark to set a country off that was already boiling. After 15 pandemics in history, this is the only one that the government shut the economy down and locked everyone up over. The country was ready to explode and Floyd struck the match. This is a revolution. You think you are free but have to obey well over a million laws. You are not free. When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

Democrat mayors and Governors will not stand up to those looting plundering and burning down their cities because they are complicit with the actions being carried out across America. The very reason they sit back and allow this garbage to happen is George and Alexander (the demon offspring) the puppet masters who control the Democrat party are funding the Antifa and Black Lives Matter (while all others don’t) to carry out the dirty work being used by the left in an attempt to regain power. The party leadership believes that by producing a racial war out of this air they will hold on
