Trump Threatens That “Vicious Dogs And Most Ominous Weapons” Will Be Used On Washington DC Protesters

The DCist reports:

Protests in D.C. over the killing of George Floyd continued in the early hours of Saturday morning with a tense standoff between protesters and police outside of the White House. Police wore shields and helmets, and tried to push protesters back and re-erect barricades. Some reported that police used tear gas on protesters.

A handful of clashes broke out sporadically throughout the night. Some protesters shoved into police and officers shoved back. Protesters threw water bottles and tried to rip shields away from Secret Service members.

Demonstrators stood face to face with law enforcement after protesters pulled away metal barricades and placed them in a pile. They chanted curses at the president and law enforcement.
