Washington, DC – It did not take long after President Trump’s comments in the Rose Garden to have the left start their attacks. In his comments, Trump said that he was not going to tolerate the violence anymore. It was a hardline stance, and he encouraged the Governors across the country to do the same.
One of those Governors quickly reacted. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said that he was shocked at the level of force used to allow Trump to have a photo op at the St John’s Church. Cuomo talked about how the military was being used to disperse the rioters across the country.
Cuomo refers to the rioters as peaceful, but these rioters were anything but peaceful over the past few days in our nation’s capital. The media gave the governor a great platform to portray Trump as authoritarian. This is far from the first time the military has been called in to address issues in our country.
Before Trump spoke, the Chicago Tribune outlined 12 times that the military has been called in to address issues in our country. The most recent was in 1992 during the Rodney King riots. The times were scattered with Democrat and Republican Presidents using the military to provide peace.
Just like all the times before, now that President Trump says something, it’s an issue. The media is pulling out all the stops to find people to speak out. Not only Cuomo, but they even went to the Bishop of the Church.
The Episcopal Bishop said she was outraged with Trump’s actions and using the church as a prop. Frustration was expressed about the use of teargas and flash grenades to clear the crowds. In keeping with the talking points, she shared the same sentiment as Cuomo, that Trump himself used the measures to clear the crowds.
CNN shared footage of law enforcement clearing the area around Lafayette Park. In the audio, you can hear CNN’s Wolf Blitzer say that the situation is deteriorating. If this is a deteriorating situation, what do you call what happened across the country the past few nights?

The left will continue their attacks on President Trump for anything he does. They criticized him for not making a statement. Now they criticize him for making a powerful statement. There is absolutely nothing that will keep the media propaganda machine from pursuing their goal of eliminating President Trump.
