In the wake of Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA rioters damaging statues inside blue cities across America, President Donald Trump took it upon himself to spread photos of suspects accused of vandalizing an Andrew Jackson statue in the nation’s capital earlier this week.
Trump tweeted 15 flyers from the US Park Police Department asking for the American people’s help to identify individuals accused of defacing the statue just outside of the White House Monday evening.
I’m surprised Jack Dorsey hasn’t yet marked the tweet as “manipulated information” or as violating some policy created only for Donald Trump.

“Killer” was spray-painted at the base of the monument, and they tried but failed to topple the statue.
The statue has been targeted for Jackson’s advocacy for and role in the violent displacement of Native Americans.
The Jackson statue isn’t the only one that has been vandalized and/or toppled in recent weeks following the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. The rioters are saying it’s because of white supremacy, but then they can’t offer up a sober explanation for why they’re also targeting Abraham Lincoln statues and monuments, along with statues of abolitionists who fought for the Union army to abolish the Democrat institution of slavery.
Trump, who didn’t offer any comment on the bulletins, defended the monument Monday calling it “magnificent.”
“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,” he tweeted at the time.
The president posted the flyers a day after he signed an executive order aimed toward cracking down on rioters. Of course, the Fake News will call them protesters, because they don’t have an ounce of honesty or integrity left.
The executive order makes harsh prison sentences mandatory, and threatens to “withhold Federal support from State and local law enforcement that have failed to protect public monuments, memorials, and statues from destruction or vandalism.” Of course, Democrats won’t abide by the rule of law, because they’re rarely ever held accountable while in office.
You would think Trump’s action would stimulate blue state and blue city officials to follow suit, but don’t hold your breath. They’re allowing the riots and destruction to go on, because Orange Man Bad, and they believe it will harm Trump in November.
The tactic by Democrats since day one of his presidency has been to attack him with so many outrageous accusations that even Trump supporters will have had enough of the chaos that the false accusations cause amongst the civil society that they will turn their backs on him just to go back to normal. Not gonna happen. #KeepAmericaGreat2020
