DC Mayor: Trump’s Actions Made The Protests Bigger

ABC News reports:

“What Americans saw was federal police forces tear gassing peaceful Americans — and how they responded made clear to the president that Americans would exercise their First Amendment rights and they will do it peacefully,” Bowser said on ABC’s “This Week.”

She told co-anchor Martha Raddatz, “What (Trump) actually did — as you saw for the remaining days — was turn out more people and more people who were there for peaceful protests.”

After Bowser’s appearance on “This Week,” the president tweeted that he had ordered the National Guard to withdraw from Washington, “now that everything is under control.”
