The rioters of ANTIFA and BLM have been destroying statues across the United States, and it seems President Trump has had enough.

President Trump announced he will be authorizing the Federal Government to arrest the rioters who vandalize Federal property statues. This comes after rioters have destroyed statues of past Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Ulysses S Grant.

Trump tweeted, “I have authorized the Federal Government to arrest anyone who vandalizes or destroys any monument, statue or other such Federal property in the U.S. with up to 10 years in prison, per the Veteran’s Memorial Preservation Act, or such other laws that may be pertinent. This action is taken effective immediately, but may also be used retroactively for destruction or vandalism already caused. There will be no exceptions!”

 

Monday night rioters were near the White House where they attempted to destroy the Andrew Jackson statue and create a new autonomous zone. White House Police broke the riot up and saved the statue.

Trump tweeted about the rioters targeting Andrew Jackson as well, “Numerous people arrested in D.C. for the disgraceful vandalism, in Lafayette Park, of the magnificent Statue of Andrew Jackson, in addition to the exterior defacing of St. John’s Church across the street. 10 years in prison under the Veteran’s Memorial Preservation Act. Beware!”
