You won’t believe what happened when rioters reached the White House gates
The violent riots reached Washington, D.C.
Vandals and terrorists attacked police and vandalized national monuments.
But you won’t believe what happened when rioters reached the White House gates.
On Friday night, antifa rebels and other insurgents pushed up against a line of 100 Secret Service members and Washington, D.C. police.
The mob got within feet of the fence that protects the White House.
This group of rioters was so unruly that Secret Service actually put President Trump and his family in the bunker beneath the White House.
The New York Times first reported the use of the bunker, saying, “Inside the White House, the mood was bristling with tension. Hundreds of protesters were gathering outside the gates, shouting curses at President Trump and in some cases throwing bricks and bottles. Nervous for his safety, Secret Service agents abruptly rushed the president to the underground bunker used in the past during terrorist attacks.”
The report was later confirmed by a senior administration official who told Fox News, “Wasn’t long. But he went,” the official said Sunday.
The next day President Trump praised the Secret Service and noted that the rioters would have been met with overwhelming force.
President Trump wrote:
Great job last night at the White House by the U.S. @SecretService. They were not only totally professional, but very cool. I was inside, watched every move, and couldn’t have felt more safe. They let the “protesters” scream & rant as much as they wanted, but whenever someone got too frisky or out of line, they would quickly come down on them, hard – didn’t know what hit them.
The front line was replaced with fresh agents, like magic. Big crowd, professionally organized, but nobody came close to breaching the fence. If they had they would have been greeted with the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons, I have ever seen. That’s when people would have been really badly hurt, at least. Many Secret Service agents just waiting for action. “We put the young ones on the front line, sir, they love it, and good practice.” As you saw last night, they were very cool & very professional. Never let it get out of hand. Thank you!
