As fires set by protesters outraged over the death of George Floyd burned in Minneapolis early Friday, President Trump threatened to call in the National Guard, labeled the demonstrators 'thugs,' and criticized the mayor for losing control over the city.

The precinct station house fire, which was one of several burning in Minneapolis, spread to the interior. Police cleared the building shortly after 10 p.m., when demonstrators forcibly entered and"ignited several fires," department spokesman John Elder said.

"These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen," Trump tweeted.Frey responded early Friday, saying,"Weakness is pointing your finger at somebody else during a time of crisis. Donald Trump knows nothing about the strength of Minneapolis." "Please, please, please, I can't breathe," Floyd said in the video."My stomach hurts. My neck hurts. Please, please. I can't breathe."
