Morning Greatness: Trump Threatens Rioters, Walks to Church With a Bible

Good Tuesday morning.

Here’s what is on the president’s agenda today:

  • The President and First Lady visit Saint John Paul II National Shrine
  • The president signs an Executive Order to Advance International Religious Freedom
  • President Trump receives his intelligence briefing
  • The president meets with the Secretary of Health and Human Services

Trump throws down against the violent hooligans, walks to St. John Church holding a bible

On Monday, the president delivered a warning to the violent garbage terrorizing cities and assaulting people.

That is why I am taking immediate presidential action to stop the violence and restore security and safety in America.  I am mobilizing all available federal resources — civilian and military — to stop the rioting and looting, to end the destruction and arson, and to protect the rights of law-abiding Americans, including your Second Amendment rights.  Therefore, the following measures are going into effect immediately:

First, we are ending the riots and lawlessness that has spread throughout our country.  We will end it now.  Today, I have strongly recommended to every governor to deploy the National Guard in sufficient numbers that we dominate the streets.  Mayors and governors must establish an overwhelming law enforcement presence until the violence has been quelled.

If a city or a 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.

I am also taking swift and decisive action to protect our great capital, Washington, D.C.  What happened in this city last night was a total disgrace.  As we speak, I am dispatching thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel, and law enforcement officers to stop the rioting, looting, vandalism, assaults, and the wanton destruction of property.

We are putting everybody on warning: Our seven o’clock curfew will be strictly enforced.  Those who threaten innocent life and property will be arrested, detained, and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

I want the organizers of this terror to be on notice that you will face severe criminal penalties and lengthy sentences in jail.  This includes Antifa and others who are leading instigators of this violence.

The resistance media and the Democrats flipped out when Trump, A.G. Bill Barr and a few others walked to the St. John’s Church holding a *GASP* bible. Prior to Trump’s statement the police and Secret Service cleared out the protestors from the path to the church. I heard that they were asked to move and did not so the authorities used flash bangs and tear gas to get them to move. Outrage erupted. DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, who has let the city she governs be attacked and vandalized, called it “shameful” that the protestors were moved.  Pelosi and Schumer released this statement: “At a time when our country cries out for unification, this President is ripping it apart. Tear-gassing peaceful protestors without provocation just so that the President could pose for photos outside a church dishonors every value that faith teaches us.” Oh shut up.

I think the public has had enough of this crap. Protest peacefully. If the police ask you to move, MOVE. Why is that so hard to understand? I’ve protested.

Take a minute and listen to Tucker Carlson
