Donald Trump threatened to deploy troops across the country to curb George Floyd’s riots and control the streets.

The President made a statement on Monday evening in the rose garden of the White House when tear gas and helicopter bombs were being heard in the background as a result of protests in the capital.

Trump said he wanted mayors and governors to establish an overwhelming police presence until violence is suppressed, and threatened to use U.S. military forces to resolve the problem quickly if they did not.

The President’s announcement seemed to indicate that he could refer to the revolt of 1807. It was a federal law governing the ability of the President of the United States to deploy troops on U.S. soil to suppress civil unrest, insurrection and riots.

I will mobilize all available federal civil and military resources to stop the riots and looting and stop the destruction and arson. And to protect the rights of law-abiding Americans, including your rights under the Second Amendment, Trump said.

Today I strongly advised every governor to use the National Guard to control the streets, he continued.

After Trump’s brief statement, he went to a photo opportunity at St. Mary’s Church. The protesters were at St. John’s while law enforcement aggressively cleared the way for the protesters and used tear gas.

A few minutes later Tromp was photographed alone, with the Bible in front of the church.

The president’s briefing seems to have been linked to a video conversation he had with the governors on Monday morning, in which he asked them to arrest the violent protesters and put them in jail for ten years.

You have to dominate. If you don’t dominate, you’re wasting your time. They’re going to move you, you’re going to look like a bunch of idiots, Trump said, according to the ABC’s call log.

Washington was under very good control, but we’ll keep it much more under control. We’re going to attract thousands of people.

Trump was quoted to tell the governors to arrest people, track them down, put them in jail for 10 years and never to be seen again, and the president went on to tell the governors that Trump’s tone of voice sounded crazy.
