For the second night in a row, a large crowd of protesters has surrounded the White House. So far, no person or group has been able to clearly articulate why they are protesting at the White House.

President Trump was quick to condemn the death of George Floyd, tweeting on Wednesday, that he has already engaged the FBI and DOJ in an investigation into the “very sad and tragic death” of George Floyd. Trump added that he’s asked for the investigation to be “expedited,” saying he greatly appreciates all of the hard work done by local law enforcement. President Trump also shared his sympathy for Floyd’s family and friends, assuring them, “Justice will be served!”

Two hours ago, President Trump addressed the death of George Floyd from the NASA Space Center.

“The death of George Floyd on the streets of Minneapolis was a grave tragedy. It should never have happened. It has filled Americans all over the country with horror, anger, and grief.”

“We support the right of peaceful protestors, and we hear their pleas. But what we are now seeing on the streets of our cities has nothing to do with justice or peace.”

“My Administration will always stand against violence, mayhem, and disorder.

We will stand with the family of George Floyd, with the peaceful protestors, and with every law-abiding citizen who wants decency, civility, safety, and security.”

AG Barr has also promised accountability for George Floyd’s death at the state and federal level and “moving at exceptional speed.”

Both the President of the United States and the United States Attorney General have assured the public they are fully committed to “expedited” justice for George Floyd’s death, but somehow, that’s not enough for protesters who push forward, determined to drag President Trump into a battle that has nothing to do with him.

NBC News White House correspondent Kelly O’Donnell shared video footage of US Secret Service agents in heavy gear getting ready to face protesters.

O’Donnell showed another video of Secret Service agents behind the gate at the White House.

Violent rioters have spray painted the vehicles of Secret Service agents and smashed out their windows. In the video below, protesters/rioters can be seen running as law enforcement agents are pushing them away from the perimeter of the White House.

Rioters have ripped down barricades between Secret Service and the rioters and are now coming face-to-face with US Secret Service agents. What these rioters don’t understand is that Secret Service agents aren’t your run-of-the-mill local cops, they are highly-trained and highly-skilled law enforcement agents, many of whom are former members of the US military.

The crowd continues to swell, as protesters become more emboldened. As night falls, the US military moves into D.C., providing back up for the US Secret Service.

Videos are starting to appear on Twitter, showing military vehicles filled with troops rolling into Washington D.C.

Another video shows the National Guard arriving in Washington D.C.

Should protesters be outside of the White House, causing chaos and destroying personal property over the death of George Floyd, that happened in Minneapolis?
