President Trump visits a church damaged by fire during protests near the White House, walking through a park that law enforcement using tear gas had just cleared of peaceful protesters.

President Donald Trump speaks in the Rose Garden of the White House, Monday, June 1, 2020, in Washington. Amid racial unrest across the nation, President Donald Trump on Monday declared himself “the president of law and order” and threatened to deploy the United States military to American cities to quell a rise of violent protests.

Those peaceful demonstrators were cleared so Trump could walk across the park to St. John’s Episcopal Church, known as “The Church of the Presidents,” which suffered fire damage in a protest this week. Holding a Bible, he then stood with several of his Cabinet members as the cameras clicked.Trump said he would mobilize “thousands and thousands” of soldiers to keep the peace if governors did not use the National Guard to shut down the protests.

Under the Civil War-era Posse Comitatus Act, federal troops are prohibited from performing domestic law enforcement actions such as making arrests, seizing property or searching people. In extreme cases, however, the president can invoke the Insurrection Act, also from the Civil War, which allows the use of active-duty or National Guard troops for law enforcement.

Accused by critics of doing too little to defuse the crisis, Trump was to address the nation early Monday evening.

Well, Trump finally got his 'wall' but it is literally around the White House keeping Americans out of what is also called the 'Peoples House'!

My question is how would POTUS quell the unrest and protest?

You all were too busy partying to see this as a Bad idea back then in 2011 when this was made easier to fight in court, now he's apparently using it.

good1_lucy Realtor Trump Fucked Himself when he fucked us all. When Trump declared insurrection he screwed EVERY real estate owner in America. Including himself. Insurance covers riot. It does not cover insurrection.

CowardInChief

Headline need fixing

gross

SethAbramson He did not visit. He was there for a photo op meant to stir up his base.

Trump demanded churches re-open then instead of going to church himself played golf. Putin to Trump at meeting: is that a bible in your pants or are you just happy to see me

Someone pepper spray this son of a bitch’s KFC.

45 is largely responsible for this crisis.

He looks afraid. And really, really tired. Doesn't he look tired to you?

Did you intentionally forget about the rubber bullets also fired at innocent Americans for Donald Trump to walk to a closed church to execute his re-election campaign photo opp? Do all of your homework before you rush for a clickbait article!

He defiled that church with that stunt. The Bishop is LIVID.

Tear gas was used to clear PEACEFUL protesters from Lafayette park so the president could get a photo op at St. John’s Church. This cannot be tolerated in America. We cannot tolerate the abuse of law abiding citizens in this country because of the actions of others.

All that for a photo op? I can carry a bible and stand in front of a church but that does not mean I've read it or know what it means to truly worship in one. After the choices he has made recently all I have to say is beware of wolves in sheeps clothing.

realDonaldTrump. great photo-op plus you got in some exercise and gassed some protestors along the way. You were struggling though to get a good pose with “a bible” but you were able to get your subjects to pose with you. Nice job. MAGA.

The Communist Democrats WANT America in Chaos. They are fanning the flames with the race card. They have NO PLAN on stopping this. President Trump must Enact Martial Law.

Trump the coward Antifacated his shorts so he had protestors dispersed so he could have a photo op in front of a church he doesn’t attend without being disturbed. Because he cares...

SethAbramson misleading headline. ‘visit a church’ implies going in to worship or pay respects. He and his cronies did neither. The hypocrites violated many citizens rights to lawfully assemble (before curfew) in order stage a photo op.

America after Trump

What a shameless photo-op. “I have risen from the bunker and will walk once more among men without fear (flanked by Special agents) to a nearby church where I will find a big big big book and pretend I know what it is. And They shall call me the Chosen one” 1st Book of Trump

The US, as a democracy, has now failed. It took 250 plus years but it’s now in smouldering ruins. It’s now an autocratic nation and will become a dictatorship if things do not change.

Trump and family are clueless. Oxymoron to hold bible and call on military to go after protestors! You cant disseminate against looters and real protestors. Scary times.

It’s pretty ‘weak’ that he walked to the church. He should have taken a tank like a real man!

What a nice way of putting this.

The Protesters didn’t violate the curfew?

They were not peaceful protestors have you seen the videos?

He didn’t visit the church, he stood there for a photo-op, despicable

seriously, what happened to that comment he liked to roll out there saying 'there are good people on both sides'...haven't heard him say that.....at all!!

FakeNews

I'm embarrassed as a Republucan. No empathy to those who have been abused by some power driven corrupt cops! Talk about that and not a fruitloop photo op with bible when Trump calls on military! Ridiculous!

Wrong. Trump violated the First Amendment rights of Americans, by having them gassed and shot, all for a photo op in front of a church he doesn’t attend.

SethAbramson He thinks he’s Jesus walking on tear gas.

There hasn't been peaceful protesting. Stop the fake news. It's pitiful.

Projecting his weakness on the governors.

Hypocrite-on-Chief continues his destruction of America, with scarcely a whimper from his victim.

Who, other than Trump and his minions would have St. John's torched?

Americans deserve Arab or African leaders. Most of them are uncultured. Unruly brats

SWhyno Visits? More like poses.

Don’t call them law enforcement. Anyone, and I mean anyone in law enforcement who follows his orders anymore are gestapo. Call them what they are.

This is outrageous.

He broke curfew for a photo op.

Absolutely bizarre! The Church photo op and raising the Bible. All white men and 1 women in his photo too

SethAbramson Probably the most that coward has walked in decades.

How has that peaceful protesting been going so far?

shot at peaceful protestors so he could take a photo, then claims to be an ally of peaceful protestors. Embarrassing.

Allow me to introduce you to Donald Trump. He’s been here for awhile. You must be new.

Hero 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

It was so staged and offensive.

Were any clergy made aware of his appearance? Otherwise, it was a tacky photo session.

If people are not nice I will send the tanks. Trump

IS AMERICA GREAT AGAIN YET ?

shute615 Anybody believes this show?

lets pray..

Oh now Nebuchadnezzar, aka POTUS Trump is saying that he is doing the will of God, by standing outside a church and holding a bible.🤔

“Protests” “Historic church they tried to burn down” Enemy of the people.

The only surprise was he didn't burst into flames

I can't believe the church didn't get struck by lightning. Isn't that what's supposed to happen when the antichrist enters hallowed ground? IMPOTUS

Nyt and wapo failed; app mentioned the protestors were peaceful

SethAbramson Firing squad soon

Let’s just spread some tear gas on my way to church. I am God, you know...

They should have tear gassed the snowflakes protesting the lockdown...magas crying about hair cuts ...

As usual you are miss wording this🤣

he's always high these days, guess the stress is a bitch
