Pres. Trump says he is mobilizing 'heavily armed' military to stop protests in DC | ABC News



BREAKING: Addressing a nation on edge, Pres. Trump called himself the “law and order” president, and said he is mobilizing “heavily armed” military to stop continued protests in Washington, D.C. over the death of George Floyd.

Before Pres. Trump spoke, what appeared to be gas was used to disperse peaceful protesters in Lafayette Park near St. John’s Church, which was briefly set on fire last night. Trump then walked across Pennsylvania Ave. to appear before cameras at the church, holding a Bible. abcn.ws/3drsPzV

We have a total Solar Eclipse right on the summer solstice happening this weekend. Pivotal world changes over next 6 months. The last time there was a similar total eclipse in 1955 on June 20th!That year Martin Luther King led the first march of the Civil rights Movement, the president of USA suffered a heart attack, the Warsaw pact was signed (alliance of the eastern European communist countries). We can already see some correspondences with what is happening now…. Looking at eclipses which happened on the days of the Solar equinoxes or solstices shows that these are pivotal years for the world, when… Read more »

The ultimate ironic justice would be for the troops that he sent out on the streets of D.C. to be the same troops that eventually have to be used to drag him out of the White House on January 20, 2021. (dead or alive)

Conservatives that were advocating free speech on college campuses are now shockingly silent as the president unleashes the army on peaceful protestors. ://

He's going to bring in the military in to protect us or him? Our they really going to fight NFL player, NBA players, celebrities, family members that are protesting.
Please military personnel think before doing this, cause you know draft dodging Donald doesn't care about the people, just himself.

I have to give it to the President in this incident. Make no mistske I am far from a Trump supporter but I stand behind him 100 % in this matter. Thank You Mr. President I appreciate you stepping up to take action during these riots and the looting. You Sir have gained my respect. I ask you Mr. President please restore law and order by any legal means necessary. A week of protest I believe the.point has been made and the Officers involved with death of George Floyd are being held accountable.

He’s turning the White House into a fortress because he thinks the protesters want to draft him, so he’s making the White House impenetrable. In a sense dodging another draft. Relax bunker boy, nobody wants you.

Stop saying protesters, you know who he’s going after. That’s right, the people who are literally burning down buildings, stealing millions of dollars who of stuff, and vandalizing city streets at a rapid rate. The lies of the media are unreal

The Trump Military Protocol seeks to create, and maintain societal respect for our local, state, and federal entities. Some question his real intent, and whether his advisors may be less than loyal to his authority. Trump is the first president since Taft to wear the beard in office. Is he Grant, Lee, or a communist?

Chinese Communist is the mastermind behind all the riots, so Trump is doing the right thing to use military force to crush the rioters associated with CCP
