Peaceful protests are the right of every American said President Trump, but violence and rioting will not be tolerated he said in a press conference on Monday, June 1. “These are acts of domestic terror,” said the president.
“I am your president of law and order and an ally of all peaceful protesters.
“Healing not hatred, justice not chaos this is our mission. And we will succeed.” Immediate presidential action is to be taken to end the destruction and arson and to protect all citizens.
“First we are ending the riots” using the National Guard. If states don’t utilize the Guard, troops will be deployed to take care of the situation and stop the rioting.
“I am mobilizing all available Federal resources civilian and military to stop the rioting and looting.”
The president said in his address:
“Innocent people of have been savagely beaten, like the young man in Dallas, Texas, who was left dying on the street. Or the woman in upstate New York, viciously attacked by dangerous thugs. Small business owners have seen their dreams utterly destroyed. New York’s Finest have been hit in the face with bricks. Brave nurses, who have battled the virus, are afraid to leave their homes. A police precinct has been overrun. Here in the nation’s capital, the Lincoln Memorial and the World War ll Memorial have been vandalized. One of our most historic churches was set ablaze. A federal officer in California, an African American enforcement hero, was shot and killed.
“These are not acts of peaceful protest. These are acts of domestic terror.”
—President Donald Trump
A seven o’clock curfew will be strictly enforced. States need to employ the National Guard to restore law and order as rioting spirals out of control sayid President Trump.
“What happened in the city last night was a total disgrace.”
What began as mostly peaceful protests against the death of a black man in custody at the hands of a white police officer has been used to burn down America and divide the nation.
“My administration is fully committed that for George and his family, justice will be served,” said the president. The organizers of the riots, including Antifa, are to be brought to justice, said the president.
“We are ending the riots and lawlessness throughout our country. We will end it now.”

“Most of you are weak. You have to arrest people,” President Trump.
During a conference call on Monday, President Trump expressed his displeasure at the lack of response by the governors to the riots and looting, which is a reaction to the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
“Most of you are weak,” the president said. “You have to arrest people.”
“You have to dominate if you don’t dominate you’re wasting your time,” he said, according to a senior staffer in a governor’s office who was listening to the call, reports Fox News. “They’re going to run over you, you’re going to look like a bunch of jerks. You have to dominate.”
Protests erupted close to the White House on Friday, and the president was ushered into a bunker for a short time when tensions escalated. The U.S. flag was thrown onto a street fire as the angry crowd continued destroying property, burning road signs and barricades.
“You’ve got to arrest people, you have to track people, you have to put them in jail for 10 years and you’ll never see this stuff again,” said the president. “We’re doing it in Washington, D.C. We’re going to do something that people haven’t seen before.”
President Trump has warned looters and rioters their behavior will not be tolerated. The president repeated his message over the weekend in a tweet, “Get tough Democrat Mayors and Governors. These people are ANARCHISTS. Call in our National Guard NOW. The World is watching and laughing at you and Sleepy Joe. Is this what America wants? NO!!!”
“I swore an oath to uphold the laws of our nation and that is exactly what I will do,” he said in a Rose Garden address on Monday, June 1.
America needs “security, not anarchy,” said the president. “Our country always wins.”
