Trump Threatens To Send Military To Minneapolis With Green Light To Open Fire On Protesters Who Damage Property

As protests over the police killing of Minneapolis resident George Floyd intensify, President Donald Trump, who said very little throughout the week in response to Floyd’s death, fired off a tweet just after midnight threatening to send the U.S. military to occupy the city with a green light to open fire on demonstrators who damage property.

“I can’t stand back and watch this happen to a great American City, Minneapolis. A total lack of leadership,” Trump tweeted. “Either the very weak Radical Left Mayor, Jacob Frey, get his act together and bring the City under control, or I will send in the National Guard and get the job done right.”

“These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen,” Trump continued in a second tweet. “Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!”

Twitter deemed the latter tweet a violation of the platform’s rules against “glorifying violence” and placed it behind a public interest notice.

In response to the president’s attack, Frey said during a news conference that “Donald Trump knows nothing about the strength of Minneapolis.”

“Is this a difficult time period? Yes, but you better be damn sure we’re going to get through this,” Frey added.

Protesters and Floyd’s family are demanding murder charges for the four officers who were on the scene when Floyd was detained Monday for allegedly attempting to use a counterfeit $20 bill at a local grocery store. Video footage that emerged Tuesday morning shows now-former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin kneeling on the back of Floyd’s neck while ignoring the handcuffed man’s repeated pleas for his life.

‘I can’t In Good Countenance Continue To Show This’: Fox News Cut Away From Trump’s Press Sec. For Pushing Baseless Claims Of Election Fraud

Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto on Monday cut away from a press briefing featuring Kayleigh McEnany, who is both the White House press secretary and a Trump campaign spokesperson, as she continued to push Donald Trump’s baseless claims of election fraud.

“She’s charging the other side as welcoming fraud and illegal voting. Unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue to show you this,” Cavuto said as he cut off the press conference, pushing back on what he described as “explosive” charges from McEnany.

“Not so fast,” Cavuto added.

McEnany suggested, without evidence, that Democrats welcomed “fraud” and “illegal voting” in the 2020 election.

“We want every legal vote to be counted,” McEnany said, echoing President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that votes for President-elect Joe Biden were illegal.

Though multiple major news outlets, including Fox News, have declared Biden the projected winner of the 2020 election, Trump has refused to concede and is rejecting the results, claiming that he won the election.

Meanwhile, a number of world leaders have congratulated Biden on his victory, including UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Even before the end of voting on November 3, the president repeatedly signaled he would claim the election was “rigged” against him if he lost, but there is no evidence to substantiate such claims.
