Trump to Deploy Military to Quell Riots

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Pain a lot of despair a lot of violence in America again last night in New York City the iconic Macy's department store was breached I saw a video of looting taking place in the streets of Manhattan the big fancy apple store the the glass doors shattered in Las Vegas a police officer was struggling with a suspect and somebody else came up behind officer shot him in the head that officers reportedly on life support as we speak four officers shot in St Louis police officers and first responders all over America are under siege sort of feels like one of those Hollywood movies like the purge and the president is of course trying to navigate this country in a way that very few presidents have ever been it's been challenged the president was mocked and taunted for supposedly hiding in the White House so yesterday he came out from the White House addressed the nation and talked about his responsibility to keep Americans safe the president from the rose garden talked about mobilizing all available federal resources civilian and military a lot of people are expecting that he is going to invoke the into the insurrection act which I I I cannot imagine why governors or mayors or anybody would object to the U. S. military assisting law enforcement attacked and keep people safe here's the president said yesterday from the rose garden I am mobilizing all available federal resources civilian and military to stop the rioting and looting to end the destruction and arson and to protect the rights of law abiding Americans including your second amendment rights you know speaking of the second amendment rights there was a video that went viral of a Florida sheriff that I had a pretty powerful message sheriff Grady judge of Polk County Florida reminded the looters anarchists and violent people to think twice before heading out to the suburbs of Polk County Florida but we have received information on social media but some of the criminals we're going to take your criminal conduct into the neighborhoods I would tell them if you value your life you probably shouldn't do that in Polk County because the people of Polk County like guns they have guns I encourage them to own guns and they're going to be in their homes tonight with the guns loaded and if you try to break into their homes to still the set fires I'm highly recommending they blow you back out of the house with their guns that's a sheriff of Polk County Florida now all of course on social media full who are anti gun people who are against the second amendment are livid at that share of making that suggestion but that's just the reality for a lot of homeowners and a lot of residents I've seen all kinds of video of homeowners in their driveways fourteen and pushing back violent people from their property there there's there's nothing easy about any of this because the most important take away is that the message behind the anger and the hurt and the heartache of George Floyd's death is being obscured by all the violence and my big fear is that there are a lot of people who don't really see a difference they believe that burning down somebody's store maybe a a an immigrant or or I'm a minority owned business is somehow acceptable I'm afraid that there are peaceful protesters who really don't mind the threat that the White House was under and continues to be under over under frankly it seems to me that people were angrier about the president visiting St John's Episcopal Church last night than they were looters in violent people trying to burn it down and that's very that's a very bitter pill to swallow this is a historic church Abraham Lincoln worship there before he went to forge unity was assassinated every president has prayed there trump went over there and held up a Bible his Bible apparently and the left went crazy they were livid what would you say you're angry that he's hiding in the White House the language he leaves the White House of course they have to clear the protesters out of the park for him to get there they got a clear path for him to go anywhere what is going to do the guests in a motorcade drives to to the to the airport or whatever he does I mean for crying out loud if protesters are blocking a park and I and I get the optics of it I really do I can appreciate somebody saying well you know they're they're clearing out of park using tear gas to clear the way for the president to go visit the church the president decided to have a very symbolic act I'm supporting a house of worship but even the bishop whose diocese includes that church condemned president trump for what he did and that's that's hard for millions of Americans understand quite frankly that's hard for people to accept one would think that demonstrating a viable the need for a return to our faith and even prayer one would think a bishop would welcome that but that doesn't that doesn't really compute when you hate the president this much when you hate the president was such a burning passion you don't care what it what he does you're you're gonna complain if he's in the White House hiding in the bunker as people of like to put it you're gonna complain it becomes out delivers an address to the to the nation of of trying to keep America safe there's nothing he can do we know what trump haters expect they don't even want to be defeated on November third they wanted to just quit they wanted to resign right now and anything short of that is unacceptable and I challenge trump haters you're listening to the show to tell me that I'm wrong you don't want to wait for the election if you did why would you what I have this kind of reaction to the president supporting St John's Episcopal Church president could invoke the insurrection act it makes no sense to me quite frankly what the what the delay is and we're gonna break this down for you just a moment what the insurrection act means that was signed into law by president Thomas Jefferson all the way back in eighteen oh seven the president seems to suggest that he's doing just that short of him the the formality of invoking the insurrection act here's what the president said yesterday we have a city or state refuses to take the actions that are 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 do you know how many governors have already lined up to say thanks but no thanks start with New York governor Cuomo apparently one on CNN and said nope not here as if the NYPD can't use the help I don't know governor Cuomo has seen but they are they have their looting all throughout Manhattan they're they're they're breaking into stores stealing apple computers a Nike shoes and Louis Vuitton bag overtime bags they're breaking down order and law governor of Illinois said apparently the same thing these
