White House Says Trump Won’t Address The Nation Regarding Protests Because ‘Statements Don’t Stop Anarchy’

On Monday, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said that President Trump hasn’t addressed the nation regarding protests across the country because statements “don’t stop anarchy,” adding that “what stops anarchy is action.”

Asked why Trump hadn’t addressed the nation, McEnany told reporters that Trump has “delivered multiple statements on this,” pointing to comments he made on the death of George Floyd while speaking at the SpaceX launch on Saturday.

“What I would note is continual statements as he’s made day and day again — they don’t stop anarchy. What stops anarchy is action. And that’s what the President is working on right now for the anarchists,” McEnany told reporters, according to CNN.

Trump said protesters in Minneapolis, where Floyd died after an arrest, were “THUGS,” adding that, “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.”

He also warned that if protesters near the White House came close to breaching the fence, “they would have been greeted with the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons, I have ever seen.”

That is the kind of action Trump wants as the country grapples with multiple crises.

‘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.
