He tweeted: “They were not only totally professional, but very cool. I was inside, watched every move, and couldn’t have felt more safe”

“They let the ‘protesters’ scream & rant as much as they wanted, but whenever someone got too frisky or out of line, they would quickly come down on them, hard – didn’t know what hit them.”

Donald J. Trump added: “The front line was replaced with fresh agents, like magic. Big crowd, professionally organized, but nobody came close to breaching the fence. If they had they would have been greeted with the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons, I have ever seen.”

Meanwhile, Derek Chauvin, the officer filmed kneeling on Mr. Floyd’s neck has been charged with third-degree murder and fired from the police department. He was recorded kneeling on Mr. Floyd’s neck for eight minutes while allegedly arresting him for a counterfeit banknote.
