President Trump was going to go to his golf club in Bedminster, New Jerseys this weekend. Instead, he’ll stand his ground at the White House, where huge numbers of protestors are planning amass Saturday.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Demonstrators are expected to swell the area around the White House Saturday, placing President Trump and the White House under siege and testing his law-and-order message.
D.C. Metropolitan Police said the event “may be one of the largest we’ve had in the city.”
Calls for action shared on Twitter, including one by a group called Refuse Fascism, say demonstrators will meet outside Lafayette Park, an area forcefully cleared of people on Monday before Trump’s trip across the square for a photograph holding a Bible in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church.
“Trump has unleashed US military police and threatened to call out the military nationwide to crush the righteous George Floyd protests against police murder,” reads a statement by the group, which calls for an end to “police murder of black people,” a “fascist police state,” a “fascist military war on the people,” and for Trump and Vice President Mike Pence to leave office.
