It’s becoming quite clear that President Trump is getting sick and tired of watching thugs and anarchists under the banners of Black Lives Matter and Antifa — many of whom are obviously being paid by someone — harass, threaten, intimidate, and physically assault Americans exercising their right to make their own political choices.
He was no doubt angered by the many video clips posted online of his supporters being harangued by militant Leftists following his RNC speech at the White House on Thursday.
One of those accosted was friend and ally Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and his wife Kelley. Another was conservative talker and former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino. Still another was Georgia state Rep. Vernon Jones, a Democrat who endorsed the president.
Enough is enough, Trump seemed to be saying during a campaign speech in Manchester, N.H. when he suggested he may invoke the Insurrection Act to deal with the “thugs.”
President Trump on Friday described protesters who surrounded the White House during the final night of the Republican National Convention as 'thugs,' and suggested he was looking at invoking the Insurrection Act to send troops to quell protests in U.S. cities.
Trump, speaking at an outdoor campaign rally in Manchester, N.H., took a victory lap following his keynote address to the GOP convention from the White House on Thursday, before rebuking Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) for what he described as a failure to gain control of protests in the city.
Trump specifically mentioned Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who was surrounded by protesters Thursday night when departing the White House following Trump's address and needed to be escorted by police.
'What I didn't like, you saw this, right, when it was over?' Trump said. 'The thugs outside, because the Democratic mayor of Washington, D.C., it's another Democrat that's not believing in law and order. And you know we give Washington, D.C., a lot of money to run it, but they don't do a good job of running it, the mayor. She doesn't run anything.'
'These incredible people from all over the country, all over the world last night, they walked out to a bunch of thugs. And that wasn't — remember this — that wasn't friendly protesters, they were thugs. They were thugs,' Trump continued.
The president went on to suggest that he again was considering invoking the Insurrection Act, which would enable him to send active-duty troops to cities to quell protests and unrest.
'We're not supposed to be involved unless we're invited in — by the people that run — these are all Democrat-run cities, including D.C.,' Trump said. 'We're not supposed to go in unless you call it an insurrection.”
'We're going to have to look at it,' he continued. 'Because we're not going to let that happen to people who go to the White House to celebrate our country.'
It may come to that.
One way or another, though, the people who live in these out-of-control cities are going to have to take matters into their hands as well and get rid of the anarchist Democrats they keep electing to abuse them.
That’s the real problem.
