Last night, rioters, whose agenda had nothing to do with the death of George Floyd, took their “I won’t accept the 2016 election results” battle to the White House. Incredible videos showing Antifa mixed in with young college-age kids breaching the Secret Service barricade around the perimeter of the White House were circulating on Twitter last night. Unfortunately, the D.C. rioters have no idea how serious their actions are when they defy orders from the U.S. Secret Service. They’re not messing with the local police in Minneapolis who are working under the direction of a feckless mayor. The Secret Service agents, many who are ex-military, are trained to protect the President from harm—full stop.

This morning, after a night of rioting around the country in major Democrat-run cities, and threats of more rioting tonight, especially around the White House, President Trump shared a strong message with the would-be rioters:
First, he thanked the US Secret Service agents, while giving the protesters and advance warning that the Secret Service is not there to play games: 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!
In his next message, President Trump blasted Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser for refusing to act to stop the violent protesters from tearing up the city:
On the bad side, the D.C. Mayor, @MurielBowser, who is always looking for money & help, wouldn’t let the D.C. Police get involved. “Not their job.”
Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton posted an incredible video showing a thug with a can of spray paint defacing the side of a historic building in Washington DC, as the crowd of rioters cheers him on from below. Fitton also criticized Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser for allowing the lawlessness to take place in a city under his jurisdiction.

Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel responded with a series of vile tweets, accusing President Trump of being afraid!
My police department will always protect DC and all who are in it whether I agree with them (such as those exercising their First Amendment Right) or those I don’t (namely, @realdonaldtrump).
While he hides behind his fence afraid/alone, I stand w/ people peacefully exercising their First Amendment Right after the murder of #GeorgeFloyd & hundreds of years of institutional racism
There are no vicious dogs & ominous weapons. There is just a scared man. Afraid/alone…
Here’s a video of the mostly white protesters in D.C. who Mayor Bowser is calling on to fight institutionalized racism in her city:
President Trump explained that the protesters America is watching burn down major cities and attack law enforcement officers are, “Organized Groups” that have nothing to do with George Floyd. Sad!
The professionally managed so-called “protesters” at the White House had little to do with the memory of George Floyd. They were just there to cause trouble. The @SecretService handled them easily.
Trump ended his series of tweets by saying,
Tonight, I understand, is MAGA NIGHT AT THE WHITE HOUSE???
