LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — President Trump spoke to the nation from the Rose Garden as police fired tear gas and deployed flash bangs to disperse crowds protesting near the White House.

Trump said he was recommending that governors deploy the National Guard in sufficient numbers to “dominate the streets. If governors fail to take action, Pres. Trump said he will deploy the United States military and “quickly solve the problem for them.”

Trump in his Rose Garden remarks said he would mobilize the U.S. military to end “lawlessness” as police fired tear gas at hundreds of protesters gathered outside the White House. He also enacted a 7 p.m. curfew in Washington, D.C.

Trump blamed anarchists and Antifa for fomenting unrest.
