There doesn’t seem to be any end to rioting for George Floyd. What started out as peaceful protests against police brutality, have, unfortunately, devolved into 11 days of fires, looting, and unrest across America. While many protests remain peaceful, radical, Democrat leaders and race-baiters-for-hire like Al Sharpton, have turned protests into an opportunity to blame President Trump for the violent death of George Floyd at the hands of four Minneapolis Police officers. President Trump has, on more than one occasion, condemned the death of George Floyd.
Trump addressed the nation on the death of George Floyd during the recent space launch at NASA, saying, “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.”

Last week, Democrat Mayors, governors and members of Congress, disgustingly used George Floyd’s death as an excuse to accuse President Trump, without a shred of evidence, of racism. While thousands of angry protesters surrounded the White House, starting fires and breaching barriers put in place by the U.S. Secret Service to protect President Trump and his family, Democrat Mayor Muriel Bowser refused to do anything to help secure the White House.

Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton blasted DC Mayor Bowser for continuing to suppress law-abiding citizens with her tyrannical shutdown orders while allowing lawbreakers to “run amok” in D.C. In his tweet, he shared a video of criminals defacing a federal building, while protesters cheered for him.

The National Guard has been used to keep the peace in D.C. while tens of thousands of protesters have converged on the city.
According to media reports, approximately one million protesters are expected in Washington D.C this weekend. With an 11 PM curfew set by Democrat Mayor Muriel Bowser, things could quickly get out of hand.
Laura Ingraham reported tonight that subversives are planning 1 million protestors to converge on Washington D.C. this weekend.😳
Wait… wasn’t George Floyd murdered in Minneapolis, Minnesota a city and State controlled by Democrats? 🤨
Aren’t they staging in the wrong location

Instead of helping to secure the city, D.C.’s Democrat mayor has evicted the National Guard from all D.C. hotels, expressed her desire to see all fences protecting the White House removed, and renamed 16th St. NW in front of the White House “Black Lives Matter.” Watch the video of the sign being replaced:

Last night, CNN reported that Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser said she wants out-of-state military troops out of the nation’s capital after they were called in to handle the protests over the death of George Floyd.
“The very first thing is we want the military — we want troops from out-of-state out of Washington, DC,” Bowser said at a press conference Thursday.
On Thursday, NPR reported that National Guard troops were being housed in hotels around Washington D.C. A National Guard spokesperson told the news outlet that it was “common practice” for troops to be put up in hotels at a government rate.
But a tweet from Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) about Bowser wanting the troops out of the city and apparently requesting that Utah’s National Guard be taken out of hotels specifically sparked a discussion about the Third Amendment—leading it trending on Twitter.
Just heard that Mayor Bowser is kicking the Utah National Guard out of all DC hotels tomorrow. More than 1200 troops from 10 states are being evicted. This is unacceptable. 1/2

Mayor Muriel Bowser also criticized White House Secret Service for erecting a new fence around the White House
Daily Mail – ‘It’s a sad commentary that the [White] House and its inhabitants have to be walled off,’ Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser told reporters at a press conference on Thursday.
‘We should want the White House to be opened up.’
Critics bashed the moves, saying the White House, which has always been referred to as the People’s House, was suddenly no longer accessible to the American people.
On 17th Street, which borders the Eisenhower Executive Office Buildings, hundreds of feet of wall were erected all the way down and around Constitution Avenue.
White House officials told The Washington Post that adding more security to the White House perimeter was not Trump’s decision, nor was he involved in it.
In response to Senator Mike Lee’s tweet, Twitter user Phoebe Beach asked a very good question about DC’s Mayor Muriel Bowser:
One million protesters expected in DC this weekend, what do you recommend, #Senator? Mayor DC also insisting on fencing to be removed from the @WhiteHouse. What should the mayor do, evict the guard, and refuse to let DC police protect the WH?
One million protesters expected in DC this weekend, what do you recommend, #Senator? Mayor DC also insisting on fencing to be removed from the @WhiteHouse what should the mayor do, evict the guard and refuse to let DC police protect the WH? What now, Senator?? #DCProtests

It’s almost like Democrat leaders don’t want to see President Trump and his family protected from violent protesters. Imagine the outrage if Republican lawmakers wanted a fence surrounding the White House, protecting him and his family from harm, taken down during President Obama’s reign as President.
