WASHINGTON, DC -- President Trump vowed to uphold the laws of the nation this evening in a press conference. He said his administration is committed to justice for George Floyd, who died in police custody.
His words come amid violent protests across the country. President Trump vowed to deploy the military to quell protests if governors do not take action. He said governors need to deploy enough force to dominate the streets.
Last night, protesters in lit the historic St. John's Episcopal Church in front of the White House on fire.
The violence led to President Trump to bunker down in the basement of the White House. The National Guard was called to assist local police.
As protesters demand an end to police brutality, Trump is encouraging Governors to use stronger force to control riots across the nation.
