“They specifically called out police clearing Lafayette Park with tear gas and rubber bullets so Trump could visit a church across the street for a photo-op.”
Fake news wins again
Fake news??? I wish I could ask my son who started out in the 82nd in time for Gulf War 1, and then moved to Special Forces where he still serves, how he feels about all this. Unfortunately, it is hard to reach him since he is currently in Afghanistan and will remain until this fall.
The personnel used to clear the area in front of the church (which included church people on church property) were NOT DC police. They were US Park Police and National Guard troops.
