Washington DC- President Trump, in the Rose Garden today, invoked a law from 1807 that allows him to use military forces in states that have been plagued with rioting.
“We cannot allow the righteous cries of peaceful protesters to be drowned out by an angry mob,” Trump said, declaring himself the “president of law and order”
“I am mobilizing all available federal resources, civilian and military, to stop rioting and looting, to end the destruction,” he said and mobilizing the Insurrection Act of 1807, which allows him to deploy troops anywhere across the nation.
“If a city or 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,” said Trump.
“I am taking these actions today to reaffirm resolve and with a true and passionate love for our country, by far our great days lie ahead,” Trump said.
