NBC News Reporter Garrett Haake recounts the moment protestors were forced out of Lafayette Park so President Trump could get a photo opportunity with St. John’s Church. Haake notes that the protest was peaceful before police tried to disband it: “We had mounted federal police coming down H Street from east to west, clearing people out of the street. In front of them, they were using flash bangs, tear gas … All while I was listening to the President of the United States speak about law and order, I was watching people fall down as they ran, I was watching people get pushed aside by police forces.”

Trump as the most unlawful President. Here we have a peaceful protest about the murder by Minnesota Police of an unarmed Black man, until Mounted Federal Police acted to disperse them by using tear gas and flash bangs just so President Trump could do a photo opportunity holding a bible in front of St John’s Church.
Is there any credence to the rumour that it had to be explained to Trump what ‘the Bible’ was!!
Rather than trying to bring peace to America, Trump is using the protests as a Political Rally to try to prove he is the President of Law and Order, by using methods to create even more unrest.
This should be a Criminal Act and the President be charged with terrorism.
