Trump Threatens To Send The U.S. Military To Stop Protests

On Monday, President Trump suggested he would use federal troops to end protests that have erupted across the country.

Protestors are angry about the death of an unarmed black man at the hands of the Minneapolis police.

According to Reuters, President Trump made the remarks during a brief press conference on Monday evening.

He said that if a state refuses to take the actions, "then I will deploy the United States military".

The 7 days and nights of protests and demonstrations have been largely peaceful.

Police, however, in some cities have used force against journalists and protesters.

To deploy the armed forces, Trump would need to formally invoke a group of statutes known as the Insurrection Act.
