After being accused of “hiding in his bunker,” Donald Trump emerged from the White House on Monday to issue a definitive statement condemning rioters and calling for justice for George Floyd.
After delivering his address at the White House, Trump walked to the historic St. John’s Episcopal Church — which had been set on fire on Sunday — after law enforcement cleared the area around the church, sending Democrats into a rage.
Breitbart reported that “authorities cleared out protesters ahead of Democrat Mayor Muriel Bowser’s 7:00 p.m. curfew and Trump’s walk to the church.” Additionally, multiple alerts were sent out to smartphones across the area warning that the curfew — ordered by Democrat mayor Muriel Bowser — would be strictly enforced.
Failed Presidential Candidate Elizabeth Warren raged on Twitter after the fact that “the President of the United States tear-gassed peaceful protestors in order to clear the way for a useless photo-op outside the White House—just after vowing to activate the military against our own people.”
Again, these are the peaceful protestors that vandalized the church and set the basement nursery on fire.
Presidential candidate Joe Biden hyperventilated: “He’s using the American military against the American people. He tear-gassed peaceful protesters and fired rubber bullets. For a photo. For our children, for the very soul of our country, we must defeat him. But I mean it when I say this: we can only do it together.”
Dozens of other celebrities and leftist politicians weight in on the dispersing of the “peaceful protestors,” failing to acknowledge that protests — especially around the White House — were violent and destructive for several days prior to Trump’s visit to the church.
Breitbart reported on Monday:
Over the past three days, rioters outside the White House have violently clashed with Secret Service officers, torn down barricades, assaulted journalists (including Breitbart News reporter Matthew Perdie), vandalized historic buildings and monuments, and lit multiple fires, including one that caused damage to the historic St. John’s Episcopal Church, opposite the White House.
Riots and violence in D.C. and around the White House have led to a full mobilization of the D.C. National Guard. Several other National Guard units were activated in D.C. over the past three days ahead of full mobilization.
