Pres. Donald Trump: If states don't take action, I'll deploy military and quickly solve the problem
CNBC Television
President Trump delivers remarks on the federal response to the recent protests over the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
As the nation prepared for another night of violent protests sparked by the police killing of George Floyd, President Donald Trump threatened to deploy the military if states and cities failed to quell the demonstrations.
“I am mobilizing all federal and local resources, civilian and military, to protect the rights of law abiding Americans,” Trump said during a hastily arranged address at the White House.

“Today I have strongly recommended to every governor to deploy the National Guard in sufficient numbers that we dominate the streets. Mayors and governors must establish an overwhelming presence until the violence is quelled,” Trump said.
“If a city or state refuses to take the actions necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them,” said the president.
Trump stopped short of invoking the Insurrection Act, an archaic law from 1807 that would allow Trump to deploy active-duty U.S. troops to respond to protests in cities across the country. “At this time, the president has not enacted the Insurrection Act,” a senior Defense Department official told CNBC. “I refer you to the White House for more.”
During his address, Trump said he was taking “swift and decisive action to protect our great capital, Washington DC,” adding, “What happened in this city last night was a total disgrace.”
“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.”
As the president spoke, riot police and military police outside the White House were using tear gas to clear protesters out of Lafayette Square, a public square in front of the president’s residence.
Following his remarks, Trump left the White House and walked through the square, and it appeared strongly as though the riot police had forcibly cleared the square for the sole purpose of clearing a path for the president.
Once he reached the far side of the square, Trump raised a bible in front of St. John’s Church, which had been set on fire by protesters the night before. The president did not try to talk to any of the protesters, however, leaving little doubt as to where his sympathies lay.

    How does giving proof you are a Christian apostate help you? Mathew 24;10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13 but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.

    Random thought.... I'm usually not a conspiracy theorist, but as I watched this, I wondered if trump and his millions paid people to do this. His ratings were down and he, of course, wants reelected. Did he pay his good friends in China to release a virus so he could be there hero, but it got out of hand? Then, did he get people to start riots amidst peaceful protestors so he could quell the noise about the virus and focus on something else that could make him look good for reelection? He tends to prey on human emotion rather than logic, so it seems plausible....

    • Tim Shea
      Tim Shea

      I would find it doubtful that Trump paid them, but arrests of looters and rioters were actually members of white supremacist groups trying to take advantage of the situation and sow distrust in the Black Lives Matter movement. And we all know who the white supremacists vote for. You just have to look at their red hats.

    Just like the recording of George Floyd. There are all of the recordings of the Thug like behavior that happened during all of this. All of those who participated in the looting stealing destruction of private businesses and property as well the beating hurting and killing of innocent people for no reason taking advantage of a tragedy? Should not be surprised if the Police who are just doing their "JOB " show up at their door to ask questions or arrest them because they were called upon by all who were effected by their decisions.

    We want military because the damn Democrat states are deliberately allowing thousands to destroy America. BLM and Antifa are both terrorist organizations and the leaders and people of those groups should be locked up for good. Damn communists. It’s designed to take this nation down. See Jefferson 1807 act. And Trump doesn’t need Congressional approval. Furthermore many do not believe Floyd died. They think it’s another hoax to destroy America. Deport millions of Migrants whom Obama got in here from Africa. Repatriation for them and some Mestizos. And finally Sorros and those Jews who want to take our nation down for their despicable NWO globalization of the West can gth. Rothschild to Bilderburg to SPLC to AIPAC to ADL and Bill Gates are all rotten.

    The President is giving them the chance to do their job, which they won't, so he'll have to come in and be 'the bad guy' He could solve all the world's problems right now, and the Left would still hate him. Democrats have become a clear and present danger in my view, and should be evicted from politics. All they do is obstruct when not in power, and drag America's reputation through the mud when in power, accomplishing nothing along the way. Just look how much they're struggling to impeach the President, grasping at the faintest of straws like a drowning man would a life preserver? They still haven't accepted that they lost the election in 2016, and are willing to do ANYTHING to win this upcoming one. I honestly have fears that if something doesn't go their way as we get closer to November, that they will start trying to assassinate the President, they are that deranged, it is so very clear when you see these 'people's' reactions, they are nuts. I don't say this to be mean or derogatory, if anything I'm saddened by how opposite the 2 Parties of our country are, there literally cannot be any compromise or working together, the virus proved that in spades, the relief bill took so damn long because Democrats were trying to hide abortion funding and airline emission regulation among other BS in those bills, and when not doing that, they were taking a break for a couple weeks while Americans suffer and starve. I hope we see who is really on the side of the People, and it ain't the Democrats, that much has been proven many times over, just a matter of seeing if the thickest amongst us voters can realize that

    Good job Republicans. You have doubled down against our first amendment. Congrats, you win the collapse of America. You protected your conservative boys right to bear arms and riot at Charlottesville. You protected your peoples right to protest Covid-19 lock downs. You protected your presidents words that he would send the military in on one of our countries largest scale protests ever. And yet, a movement much larger than the first two is unreasonable? Sure there are rioters. There are also bad cops. But you're the same people that would say a few bad apples don't make a bad organization. Those actions do not make sense to anyone. What is the point in our country if we can't protest injustice?
