Trump to issue executive order authorizing arrest and jailing of monument vandals

President Trump isn’t playing games with protesters desecrating national monuments any longer.

He announced on Tuesday that he has given the order authorizing the arrest and jailing of “anyone who vandalizes or destroys any monument, statue or other such Federal Property.”

Trump tweeted:

I have authorized the Federal Government to arrest anyone who vandalizes or destroys any monument, statue or other such Federal property in the U.S. with up to 10 years in prison, per the Veteran’s Memorial Preservation Act, or such other laws that may be pertinent. This action is taken effective immediately, but may also be used retroactively for destruction or vandalism already caused. There will be no exceptions!

Supposedly anti-racist protesters have targeted their rage at statues and historical monuments in recent days. The first statues to come down were those of confederate generals such as Robert E. Lee. Conservatives sounded the alarm that radical activists wouldn’t stop there. The predictions came true at a dizzying speed.

Activists are now targeting monuments of decidedly anti-slavery historical figures, like the statue of prominent Philadelphia abolitionist Matthias Baldwin and another of Union General Ulysses S. Grant, who led the union army to victory in the American civil war.

In the quest to rewrite history in their own name, leftists will not stop until all vestiges of what America was built on are destroyed. One of failed presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ top surrogates, Shaun King, even called for statues of Jesus Christ to be torn down because they are a form of “white supremacy.”

Most recently, protesters attempted to tear down the statue of Andrew Jackson in Lafayette Park, just outside the White House, on Monday evening, prompting Donald Trump to take swift action.

Trump has made it clear that he will not tolerate the leftists’ assault on history, confirming Tuesday morning that he is preparing an executive order criminalizing the defacement of such monuments. “I will have an executive order very shortly, and all it’s really going to do is reinforce what’s already there, but in a more uniform way,” Trump told reporters.

Trump indicated that he is encouraging prosecution of vandals to the fullest extent of the law. “We are looking at long-term jail sentences for these vandals and these hoodlums and the anarchists and agitators, and call them whatever you want,” Trump said. “Some people don’t like that language, but that’s what they are. They’re bad people. They don’t love our country. And they’re not taking down our monuments. I just want to make that clear.”

Do you agree with President Trump that these vandals should be jailed? Scroll down to the comments section to let us know what you think!

  1. God Bless President Trump! I am sick and tired of PEOPLE who think they are above the law
    getting away with destroying what honest people have worked so hard to accomplish!!!!!
    Also, those who are trying to DESTROY THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND WHAT IT
    STANDS FOR!!! MY HEART ACHES FOR THE VICTIMS WHO HAVE SUFFERED FROM THE ACTS OF THOSE HEARTLESS CRIMINALS!!! OUR POLICE MEN & WOMEN SHOULD BE RESPECTED & HONORED FOR THEIR EFFORTS TO MAKE THIS COUNTRY A SAFE PLACE
    FOR ALL OF US! WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE TO BRING THOSE CRIMINALS TO JUSTICE?
    I AM 79 YEARS YOUNG & NEVER THOUGHT THIS COULD GO ON IN THESE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!!!!

    1. You are left!!! What Trump says he’ll do he does 😡😡😡🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

  2. I agree with President Trump!! It’s a Shame & Disgrace Of What these Stupid, Yes Stupid, Criminals are doing to America! All they are Is Ignorant, Trouble Makers, Who most are probably on Welfare or they would be Working instead of destroying!!!Yet, want a handout from America!! I personally think they should be Severely Tazed Before arrested if caught destroying ANYTHING ELSE, not just Monuments, No matter What Color Or Race!! If they want to play with 🔥 Fire, Burn their Butts!! They Deserve It!! 😡😡😡

  3. Once they are in custody hang every one of them, put it on pay per view and use the money to repair any damages they have done.

  4. I believe in what our President Trump continues to do for our people & our great American values. My opinion to these people who are attacking our history, US Constitution, US Flag, National Anthem, colleges, & our Christian churches should be convicted on charges of “Treason”! Death to all who commit treason against our President & our America! 🇺🇸

  5. Mayors & Police Chiefs gave ORDERS to NOT ARREST THESE CRIMINALS.
    You will NOTICE the MAYORS are ‘LIBERAL DEMOCRATS’!!!!!

  6. Mayors & Police Chiefs gave ORDERS to NOT ARREST THESE CRIMINALS.
    You will NOTICE the MAYORS are ‘LIBERAL DEMOCRATS’!!!!!

    ‘The MAYORS WANT THE DESTRUCTION TO HAPPEN!!!!’

    1. Mayors want federal money to make repairs but that money would never make it past their own bank accounts just as 3rd world countries that get USA money…..the people never see the money….

  7. Back on the day when men were men & women were women this would not have been going on! Towns being taken over statues being torn down.. NO WAY!! the idiots would have been stopped in their tracks.

  8. The way to take over a nation is to totlly destroy their past which is eatly what these people are doing. This has gone all the way back to acient Egypt when the new Phorahs defaced statues of their predicesors or retooled the faces into their own faces. We cannot allow our history to be destroyed. Good or bad, it IS OUR HISTORY! They are tearing down a memorial to a couple dozen Civil War Veterans who lost their lives fighting for the Confederacy. Not one of those names ever had or owned a slave. They were fighting for their homeland, good or bad. They should be honored. What’s next, destruction of the Vietman Wall? That was not a very popular war so why honor those killed in it? I can tell you why. Because many of those names were my friends! They did not wish to concoure the world, they just fought like they were told to

    1. Wow, sorry for all the misspellings. To say the least I was very angry at what these Socialists are doing and getting away with. It’s still okay to figure out what it is supposed to say. Again, I apologize for the mispellings.

  9. About time this destruction was put to an end. Protest have been used to destroy lots of our monuments from the past. This is being accomplished under the guise of racism which has become the word of the day. Time to get over the past and move forward. The American Indians were mistreated, the Blacks were mistreated, the homeless are mistreated,the poor are mistreated and the list goes on and on. Is there anyone in this country who were/was not mistreated in some way or the other? The past is just that past and can not be changed by destroying all evidence if it. Doing so is not only ridiculous but should also be criminal.

  10. It has gone too far America. Destruction of national monuments is chargeable by law. Therefore press charges and take appropriate action Commander in Chief!! Do it now before we destroy ourselves!

  11. Replace the vandled statues with bigger, taller, more of them, and with electric shock protection.
    Make the basement dwellers and their parents pay for it.

  12. Gather the Accused, like ” a thief in the night”, very quietly, one by one! Leave the Commie enemy wondering and worrying when they will be snatched, constantly looking over their shoulder with anxiety while on the run from arrest and confinement by the very long arm of the law! In the Name of Eternal, Righteous, Justice, the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.

  13. God bless America, and God bless Trump, Gods own warrior. God put him in the White House. And he will do it again for another four years. Our Father knows how to pick ’em. Saving our history is an important part of saving, and preserving America. Trump knows what he is doing. God has his back. How do you stop something like that?

  14. These people are hoodlums and need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent, plus spend maximum time behind bars for destruction of history.

  15. It is about time we had a president that will do what he sayexs, “not send 150m to an enemy” – standy by for the next set of hoodlums (lawyers) that will go to no end to defend them (each of the hoodlums of course will request public defenders) and again we spend OUR money to try them.

  16. Many of these have hijacked peaceful protests and have twisted and turned protests into an excuse to do violence, vandalism, destruction in many forms and even murder. Police officers have been murdered, and not just white police but also black police officers just because they are standing on the front lines to protect and serve the community. This is also a direct attack on authority and there are even those calling forth to get rid of police!!! This is what Hitler did and replaced them with his brown shirts stooges to terrorize and help him rise up and take over Germany. There are chaos groups rising up joining in to destroy America. There are many, many people being paid by Soros and others of their ilk. They hate America and want to make our government into a socialist communist form of government. Political correctness gone extreme trying to remove freedom of speech if you don’t agree with what they say using the card of you offended me. They want to snuff your voice to the point of being illegal to speak another opinion, labeling people who don’t think like them and their agenda as haters and racist. What has all these riots and violence done is trying to scare anyone from protesting by fear and intimidation. There is no logic, common sense or realizations for responsibilities, just mindless ruthlessness.

    They’ve gone to far!! Should have been stopped in the beginning, but unfortunately too many people in governmental positions of any kind are like minded and allowing this to happen.
    No more!!! President Trump, stand y’all and strong, blow the trumpet and stop all this. Treason is on the move. Enforcement of laws to full extent is needed. Sir, we appeal to you and millions upon millions stand with you, even though the media lies and does not report any truth about you or your support. I salute you, pray for you and will vote for you! God bless you.

  17. I am a registered Dem, but there’s no way I would vote for one of them. I really feel bad for our country if the Dem get control of our Nations capital. You go Mr President

  18. These people aren’t protesters. They are rioters and terrorists attempting to get the President out of office. They are being financed to cause these crimes. Where is the justice for those beaten and murdered, by these terrorists.

  19. Totally Agree! It should of happened when the first one was taken down. President Trump has no other recourse as the Mayors and Governors of these cities and states, They must not care. It is a shame and a disgrace!!
    You Go Mr. President.

  20. Have said it before and will say it again. Arrest every single one of these lawless terrorists who are burning and destroying property, destroying statues and intimidating citizens. Take them to Guantanamo to remove them from our society.

  21. You have plenty of video’s for proof so let’s not talk about it GET IT DONE. Thank you President Trump for taking the lead.

  22. I wish the had been done much sooner. I do not understand why the sane people didn’t stop these anarchists. All those rioters and ruiners of our nation need to thrown out of our country. They are NOT Americans. They are not fighting racism. Every woman in America understands prejudice. I have rarely seen racial prejudices it in this nation since the 60s. Most of this protesting and ALL of the rioting is totally uncalled for and every rioter needs to be punished as the criminals they are – and we know most of the rioters were paid to cause all these problems.

  23. Like!! I blog quite often and I genuinely thank you for your information. The article has truly peaked my interest.
