Violent clashes between secret service agents and rioters continued into Saturday morning outside the White House as protests over the death of George Floyd continue to sweep across the US.
US President Donald Trump praised the effective security measures used to keep the White House safe during protests in the capital.
Trump said he “was inside, watched every move, and couldn’t have felt more safe”. He also warned that any protesters who managed to breach the fence would have met by “vicious dogs” and “ominous weapons.”
Trump later expressed doubts that the protesters had anything to do with the memory of George Floyd and accused them of being “professionally managed”. In a cryptic tweet he said “Tonight,(Saturday) I understand, is MAGA NIGHT AT THE WHITE HOUSE???”
