President Trump threatened to call on federal military units to deal with violent protests in Minneapolis and other cities — unless local authorities get “MUCH tougher” on protestors.

Iran PressAmerica: “Liberal Governors and Mayors must get MUCH tougher or the Federal Government will step in and do what has to be done,” Trump tweeted Saturday, reported by New York Post.

“We have our military ready, willing and able if they ever want to call our military,” Trump told reporters. “We can have troops on the ground very quickly.”

Earlier, he praised the Secret Service for their forceful response to the thousands of protesters who massed outside the White House late Friday.

“Whenever someone got too frisky or out of line, they would quickly come down on them, hard – didn’t know what hit them,” Trump tweeted.

Had anyone breached the White House fence, he added, “they would have been greeted with the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons, I have ever seen.”

The White House was forced to go into a temporary lockdown Friday amid protests stemming from the death of George Floyd on at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on Monday.
