George Floyd Death: Trump threatens to send in army troops in areas of unrest

US President Donald Trump has threatened to send in the military to stop growing civil unrest in the US over the death of a black man in police custody.

POTUS said if cities and states failed to control the protests and “defend their residents” he would deploy the army and “quickly solve the problem for them”.

The protests across the US began after a video clip went viral, showing a black American named Floyd, 46, being arrested in Minneapolis on 25 May and a white police officer continuing to kneel on his neck even after he pleaded that he could not breathe.

President Donald Trump is also being slammed by church leaders and politicians for using tear gas and pepper spray to clear out protesters near St. John’s Church in order to visit the chapel, accusing him using his visit for a photo opportunity on Monday evening, carrying a Bible in his hand.

Trump was allegedly angry about news coverage that he fled into a White House bunker on Friday during George Floyd protests, and told his aides he wanted to be seen outside the White House gates, prompting his walk to St. Johns, according to CNN White House Correspondent Kaitlin Collins.
