Protesters Tear-Gassed Out Of Park Across From White House So An Authoritarian Racist Can Pose With A Bible

ABC News reports:

National Guard troops were deployed near the White House Monday evening hours after President Donald Trump said he wanted a military show of force against violent protests gripping the nation. Shortly after, Trump came to the White House Rose Garden to call himself the “law and order” president, saying “domestic terrorism” was to blame for the unrest.

“As we speak, I am dispatching thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel, and law enforcement officers to stop the rioting, looting, vandalism, assaults, and the wanton destruction of property,” he said. “We will end it now.”

He called on governors to use their National Guard units to “dominate the streets” said he would deploy the United States active duty military if governors failed to use the National Guard more forcefully.
