[Transcript] – THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much. My fellow Americans: My first and highest duty as President is to defend our great country and the American people. I swore an oath to uphold the laws of our nation, and that is exactly what I will do.

All Americans were rightly sickened and revolted by the brutal death of George Floyd. My administration is fully committed that, for George and his family, justice will be served. He will not have died in vain. But we cannot allow the righteous cries and peaceful protesters to be drowned out by an angry mob. The biggest victims of the rioting are peace-loving citizens in our poorest communities, and as their President, I will fight to keep them safe. I will fight to protect you. I am your President of law and order, and an ally of all peaceful protesters.

But in recent days, our nation has been gripped by professional anarchists, violent mobs, arsonists, looters, criminals, rioters, Antifa, and others. A number of state and local governments have failed to take necessary action to safeguard their residence. Innocent people have been savagely beaten, like the young man in Dallas, Texas, who was left dying on the street, or the woman in Upstate New York viciously attacked by dangerous thugs.

Small-business owners have seen their dreams utterly destroyed. New York’s Finest have been hit in the face with bricks. Brave nurses, who have battled the virus, are afraid to leave their homes. A police precinct station has been overrun. Here in the nation’s capital, the Lincoln Memorial and the World War Two Memorial have been vandalized. One of our most historic churches was set ablaze. A federal officer in California, an African American enforcement hero, was shot and killed.

These are not acts of peaceful protest. These are acts of domestic terror. The destruction of innocent life and the spilling of innocent blood is an offense to humanity and a crime against God.

America needs creation, not destruction; cooperation, not contempt; security, not anarchy; healing, not hatred; justice, not chaos. This is our mission, and we will succeed. One hundred percent, we will succeed. Our country always wins.

That is why I am taking immediate presidential action to stop the violence and restore security and safety in America. 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. Therefore, the following measures are going into effect immediately:

First, we are ending the riots and lawlessness that has spread throughout our country. We will end it now. Today, I have strongly recommended to every governor to deploy the National Guard in sufficient numbers that we dominate the streets. Mayors and governors must establish an overwhelming law enforcement presence until the violence has been quelled.

If a city or a 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.

I am also taking swift and decisive action to protect our great capital, Washington, D.C. What happened in this city last night was a total disgrace. As we speak, I am dispatching thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel, and law enforcement officers to stop the rioting, looting, vandalism, assaults, and the wanton destruction of property.

We are putting everybody on warning: Our seven o’clock curfew will be strictly enforced. Those who threaten innocent life and property will be arrested, detained, and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

I want the organizers of this terror to be on notice that you will face severe criminal penalties and lengthy sentences in jail. This includes Antifa and others who are leading instigators of this violence.

One law and order — and that is what it is: one law. We have one beautiful law. And once that is restored and fully restored, we will help you, we will help your business, and we will help your family.

America is founded upon the rule of law. It is the foundation of our prosperity, our freedom, and our very way of life. But where there is no law, there is no opportunity. Where there is no justice, there is no liberty. Where there is no safety, there is no future.

We must never give in to anger or hatred. If malice or violence reigns, then none of us is free.

I take these actions today with firm resolve and with a true and passionate love for our country. By far, our greatest days lie ahead.

Thank you very much. And now I’m going to pay my respects to a very, very special place. Thank you very much.

END 6:50 P.M. EDT

      Trump showed the strength from the good Lord up above, as he spoke and then walked to St. John, while Biden’s solution to a violent protest…cant beat them join them through putting up bail. The number one duty of the President of the United States, is to keep America safe…not to bail out bad behavior.

      I was born and bred in L. A. and well remember the Watts riots in ‘65. The ONLY thing that stopped them was the National Guard being called out in force.

      When there wasn’t enough locally-sourced men, more came in by train from Northern CA. Local station KTLA covered their arrivals and the off-loading of gear. These guys knew their shit, many being war vets, especially their COs.

      They then deployed a 360° perimeter around the entire riot area (no mean feat) with .30 and .50cal WWII/Korean War era machine guns at strategic intersections complete with sandbags, loaded for bear with orders to shoot to kill. The images were on the front page of the L. A. Times.

      Then the infantrymen went into the hot areas with M1 Garands and Thompsons behind armored vehicles (read half-tracks and the like) with orders to shoot to kill any and all looters.

      After they carried out their orders for a few days the dead (and well-publicized) “shoppers” were all it took. In all of ~48 hours the riots to come to a dead halt.

      So ended the Watts riots.

      These days I doubt any elected official has the balls to take steps like that, but I sure wish they would.

      • my first visit to LA was in ’92. i flew in to john wayne airport. i still remember driving the rental car onto the freeway. i pulled right behind a troop transport truck. several dozen uniformed and armed soldiers were inside. i thought to myself, “am i still in the U.S.”? the first i knew about the king riots was in my hotel room. the entire area was under travel restrictions and curfew. it was an ‘interesting’ conference week to say the least!

    Honest question, not a “concern” question – I really just don’t know. Posse comitatus? Always heard that we can’t have military interior to stand against citizens. I looked up the legal definition, but that just made my understanding muddier.

    I am so glad that President Trump is flexing all of his strength! I am hoping just to get have a knowledgeable response when so idiot says to me ” He can’t do this because of Posse Comitadus Act. I knew this would be the place to get the straight facts from my favorite experts! Thanks.

  3. These are the words of a truly Great leader! No matter how people try to destroy our way of life, our President refuses to allow it. This is without a doubt a leftist movement. A lesser man might have turned and given up. Our President must really love this country to stay and fight on our behalf. This Great man is always in my prayers. I may not have a lot of money to donate, but I’ll stand with Trump till his election and beyond. I know he will win. Right is might. God bless you.

  4. America COULD HAVE BEEN A VERY DIFFERENT PLACE, if the DC SWAMP CRITTERS HAD NOT IMPEDED PRESIDENT TRUMP’S GOALS TO DRAIN THE SWAMP!

    The Democratic Party and ALL Progressives (a.k.a. Communists/Socialists/Fascists/etc…) are PUSHING THEIR AGENDA UPON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND we the People HAVE THE RIGHT AND DUTY TO END THIS!
