Rioters gathered outside the White House. No one could believe how Trump handled them
Rioters put the nation’s Capital under siege over the weekend.
Left-wing thugs pushed up against the gates of the White House threatening to storm President Trump’s residence.
The following day, rioters gathered outside the White House. No one could believe how Trump handled them.
After a weekend of rioting across the country Donald Trump promised law and order.
The President intended to make Washington, D.C. a symbol of that effort to take back the streets from domestic terrorists.
A crowd of violent protestors gathered in Lafayette Park outside the White House on Monday.
After President Trump delivered remarks promising a return to law and order the United States Park Police cleared out an increasingly violent mob.
“On Monday, June 1, the USPP worked with the United States Secret Service to have temporary fencing installed inside Lafayette Park. At approximately 6:33 pm, violent protestors on H Street NW began throwing projectiles including bricks, frozen water bottles and caustic liquids. The protestors also climbed onto a historic building at the north end of Lafayette Park that was destroyed by arson days prior. Intelligence had revealed calls for violence against the police, and officers found caches of glass bottles, baseball bats and metal poles hidden along the street,” a United States Park Police statement describing the violent scene read.
But the main controversy was the Fake News Media falsely claiming the President ordered the park police to tear gas the protestors so he could walk to St. John’s Episcopal Church.
That was a lie.
As the park police made clear, no tear gas was ever used on protestors.
To curtail the violence that was underway, the USPP, following established policy, issued three warnings over a loudspeaker to alert demonstrators on H Street to evacuate the area. Horse mounted patrol, Civil Disturbance Units, and additional personnel were used to clear the area.
As many of the protestors became more combative, continued to throw projectiles, and attempted to grab officers’ weapons, officers then employed the use of smoke canisters and pepper balls. No tear gas was used by USPP officers or other assisting law enforcement partners to close the area at Lafayette Park. Subsequently, the fence was installed.
The media botched this story from the start.
The demonstrations outside the White House were getting increasingly violent.
The Park Police never used tear gas.
But the media doesn’t care about getting the story right.
Their number one concern is making sure the story hurt Donald Trump.
