BREAKING: Donald Trump has invoked the Insurrection Act,— Ali Velshi (@AliVelshi) June 1, 2020
a 213-year-old law that allows him to deploy active-duty U.S. troops (not Nat’l Guard, which governors control) to cities: “I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them.”
In a terrifying speech in the rose garden, tr*mp announced that he would send the military to end the riots if states do not "dominate the streets" with an overwhelming law enforcement presence.
"If a city or state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them."
"One law and order. And that is what it is, one law. We have one beautiful law."
He then had peaceful protesters outside the white house gassed so he could take pictures in front of a church while holding a bible for the first time in his life.
