Trump to sign Executive Order against monument destruction

POTUS emerged from the South Portico at 9:23 a.m. and walked over to take questions for 7 minutes on his trip to Arizona, protests in DC and last night’s attempt to remove the Andrew Jackson statue, coronavirus testing and the Tulsa rally. 

POTUS thanked law enforcement for its response last night in saving a “great monument.” Said there would be an executive order “very soon” with regards to monument destruction. “We are looking at long term jail sentences” for “anarchists.”

Said the federal government is willing to help cities dealing with protests. “We are ready able and willing to help as we did in Minnesota,” he added. 

On testing, he said that “We have got the greatest testing” but that "having more tests we have more cases.” Trump said that the US has conducted more than 25 million tests “We did 25 million tests, therefore, the tests are gonna have more cases”.

President said that “the Tulsa rally was incredible” and he called the crowd “warriors”

He was joined by Stephen Miller, Mark Meadows, Kayleigh McEnany, and Jared Kushner.
 
The weather in Washington is a sunny 77 degrees and rising.
