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.”

If you can get your Pokemon Figures there, or block your opponent’s Pokemon from shifting off of it, you
could have effectively prevented your opponent from putting more Pokemon on the field.

Hi all, here every person is sharing such know-how, thus it’s good to

I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today,
yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as
you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
