Attorney General William Barr is sending specialized teams of federal agents to help control protests in Washington, D.C., and Miami, and the FBI is setting up command posts in cities across the country as demonstrations against George Floyd's death move into a second week.

Remember when we all worried that Trump would try to get re-elected by starting a war in a foreign country?

Trump says he will deploy military if state officials can't contain protest violence

"We are ending the riots and lawlessness that has spread throughout our country. We will end it now," Trump said.

"If a city or state refuses to take the actions necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them," Trump said, referring to himself as "your president of law and order and an ally of all peaceful protesters."

I hope the peaceful protesters act smart and live to fight another day:

All the protesters have to do to win is to observe the curfew and go home. The officer is under arrest. Trump is defeated and in hiding. The governors are appalled at him. But every day this goes on is a day that potentially breaks in Trump's favor. /1

Trump is desperately hoping that the protests will get worse and that the situation will rise to meet the rhetoric he's trying to apply to it. Every night that goes on that the protesters continue violence and looting works in his favor. /2

Provocateurs know this, too. They will continue to try to blend in with the legitimate protesters. I hope that the protesters listen to mayors like Mayor Bottoms of Atlanta. What happens next is in their control, not Trump's. /3x

IDK Gal, I think if the protests go away, ------- will declare victory, that his tough act saved the day. Not that I am hoping for more violence, mind you.

I really don't know what will happen if some army unit opens fire on some protestors-god forbid. But it won't be pretty for the orange ---- goblin.

Gal, I hope your right. I hope peaceful protestors are heard, get the change needed, and go home safely. Those breaking curfew hopefully are then not the peaceful protestors so the State can round them up.

AINT GONNA HAPPEN. There will be NO change, certainly not from this president-who advocates FOR police abuse.

I lost over 80% of my Jewish family to Hitler. The rest either escaped to the US or died in the Soviet Union. I'll just block you. It's easier than having to see your ridiculous comparison.

Petro I apologize if I inadvertently stepped on a sore toe

The historical comparison I am attempting to draw is that the unrest in Germany in the 20s an30s lead to the rise of hitler

There are certainly parallels to the current situation today

Please believe me when I say that that revolution is the last thing I want but how do we as a nation stand up to a wanna be dictator

Trump is depriving all citizens of their right of assembly and free speech based on unsubstantiated claims of an organizational hierarchy.

Are peaceful protests preferred? Of course but they have been tried and tried and tried again
Colin Kaepernick was abused for protesting this exact thing BY THIS PRESIDENT!!

I just don't have much faith in them and understand where Some of the rioting is coming from

What on earth makes you think that? Black folks have been fighting this same fight since reconstruction.

Right here in America.

Trump has no legitimate position to take due to his previous relentless deliberate attacks on Kaepernick and the issue around black lives matter.When he had citizens attacked with teargas and horses for a photo op at the church in my honest opinion he has lost any moral legitimacy to lead.If he doesn't resign the Trump dynasty will face the "mandate of heaven".

Go home every night at curfew and do one thing to make sure Trump and every republican is defeated in November. Work with Joe Biden, with Bernie Sanders, with Liz Warren. Get it done.

But, what is ANTIFA?

Nothing. it's a Boogeyman.

So, it can be anything you want it to be.

More accurately, it can be anything Trump wants it to be.

Apparently it means democrats and liberals.

Who knew there we're so members of ANTIFA during the 1940s in America? Really kicked some Nazi ass.

What happened to them all?

Trump supporters who also try to warn us about Hitler are confusing.

"It is unclear at this point who exactly is behind the violence, but Barr and President Trump put the blame squarely on what they have labeled far-left radicals and extremists."

Because Trump doesn't care about the truth, he wants to force an untrue narrative to define the situation. He's a liar and most Americans understand that, hopefully, in Nov. he will be rejected once and for all. Can anyone deny that Trump is a horrible human being, even his supporters know it. Can anyone honestly deny it?

He's escalating the situation because the longer cities burn the greater the benefit to him and his supposed "law and order" platform.

We have a POTUS who's sacrificing Americans and America's economy on two fronts for his own benefit.

Maybe I'm an idealist, but perhaps the police should stop killing black people and this wouldn't be a problem.

They kill whites too. I wouldn't trust the media to give a balanced perspective.

Whenever I have a police encounter, the one thought that passes through my mind it treat a cop like I would treat a Rottweiler dog. Don't make him nervous.
But I do agree that peaceful blacks are a disadvantage because a larger percentage of blacks than whites are violent.

What makes it worse is that the courts won't prosecute police who do wrong. And the police know it.

This has been going on before you were born. It's the nature of political privilege that corrupts both parties.

They are disadvantaged by Institutional Racism.
