Trump Threatens to Deploy Military if Violence in States Isn’t Quelled

During a live press conference at the White House, President Donald Trump threatened to deploy the United States Military if violence in the states isn’t stopped.

Protestors swarmed the streets of cities across the nation in response to the death of George Floyd, who died while in police custody on Memorial Day in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was filmed on camera pressing his knee on Floyd’s neck who laid on the ground handcuffed and unarmed.  Floyd could be heard on video begging for air before finally going limp and dying.

Chauvin was fired from the police department just four days after Floyd’s death.
