Trump vows to end protests; tear gas fired on protesters near White House

Wife and I saw this exact scene covered on the One 31 news this evening. Their anchorwoman had the same assessment, to the effect of "Go wave a Bible around? Make some threats? What's he actually doing?" They then did a split screen of a close up on his face, blah blah, with footage of the chaos playing next to him. Heh. More of the lasting impression he's left on the world stage.

The historic church had been damaged by fire, and Trump was eager to show that the nation's capital - and especially his own downtown swath of it - was under control.

 

There was just one problem: the throngs of protesters, who on Monday had again assembled peacefully in Lafayette Square across from the White House to protest the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died in police custody in Minneapolis last week.

 

And so - shortly before the president addressed the nation from the Rose Garden at 6:43 p.m. Monday and roughly a half-hour before the District of Columbia's 7 p.m. curfew went into effect - authorities fired flash-bang shells, gas and rubber bullets into the crowd, clearing a path for Trump to visit the church immediately after his remarks.

Come on. We all know trump is an idiot. This is how its done...

 

Small percentage riot. Major perecentage peaceful. Trump latches on to riots and stokes the fire hoping it gets very bad.

 

He then comes in and fixes it then offers soft words and claims a success.

 

Thats all he has ever done. Wait for anger, make it worse, fix it.

 

 

When and where   the  "fix" ?

Yes. Likely either disenfranchised young men, hired hands of the right, or just idiots with parents who tried too hard to be their "friends". Regardless once again Trump has failed dismally. Once again he was given a golden opportunity. And instead all this coward can do is threaten young Americans with vicious dogs, all the might of the national guard and the military and other nonsensical and potentially illegal actions. All this from the deferment king, who would wet his pants if he were ever in the line of fire.  

Say what you want about Trump, I don't like him either. However, this protest has morphed into Anarchy. Looting, burning, pillaging, destruction of property. It is time to drop the hammer. Even the peaceful protesters are saying it has to stop. Outside interference has made this into a mockery of the peaceful protest. 80% of those arrested were not from the area they were in. Antifa will be labelled as a Domestic Terrorist Organisation. If the Insurrection Act of 1807 is invoked, this BS will be over Nationwide in 24 hours. All those involved should make Peace with their God beforehand.

I think he trying to encourage these kind of guys,

trying to let them know the US Armed Forces will support them.

Talk about a prescription for disaster!  The military is going to target ANYONE who is armed like this on the street, open-carry laws be damned!

 

 

Nope, as most if not all are combat vets. A brother would not shoot a brother. I just take it you are not an American and don't know anything about the Second Amendment.

... and they were considerate, by kindly only bringing along their smallest of paint ball pouches

Seems they are but mere props. The don't even use them anyway. What is the point for having them?

Self defence for when law and order breaks down and the police can,t or won,t protect you.
