Day 1236

1/ Trump ordered National Guard troops to begin withdrawing from the streets of Washington, D.C. “now that everything is under perfect control.” Trump warned that the troops “will be going home, but can quickly return, if needed.” The move comes amid a barrage of criticism over his violent response to mostly peaceful protests across the city and his threats to further militarize the government’s response to nationwide demonstrations against police brutality and the murder of George Floyd.

I LOVE that the following two points were made in the same message! “Problems? NO, everything’s just FINE here, move along people!”

Looks like he’s finally starting to lose some supporters.

3/ **White House officials are debating whether to have Trump address the nation on race and national unity.

4/ Attorney General William Barr defended his decision to have D.C. police violently clear out a crowd of peaceful protesters from Lafayette Park last week so Trump could have his picture taken in front of a church across the street from the White House.
