The Utah National Guard confirmed Friday that 200 service members are being kicked out of hotels in the nation's capital as D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser clashes with President Trump over the handling of the George Floyd protests in the city.
Bowser, who wants all non-D.C. troops out of the city, blamed the National Guard relocation on a budget issue and said the city will not pay for the accommodations amid days of protests over racial injustice, some of which have been violent.
"Last night, we were informed that our service members would be relocated from their hotel rooms," the Utah National Guard said in a statement Friday.

8 hours ago they were saying it wasn’t happening.
Utah is paying for those rooms!
Tents and trenches, then.
The mayor has that power?????
Of course she does, she’s black.
Yet she had enough money to have a street named blm and also stenciled on the road.
Let them camp on the White House lawn.
It sounds like they might be needed there this weekend.
President Trump needs to invite them into his house for an overnighter and pizza party.
I hope the Safety Moms movement resurrects for the next election.
Isn’t she violating a private contract between the NG and the hotel?
If I got kicked out of a hotel after showing up and occupying the room because I was white, black, Democrat, or Republican, I’m sure I’d have a valid lawsuit.
Yep, all that extra hotel revenue and the ensuing city tax income has gotta be hell on those communist accountants.
If these cretins are gonna lie, they really oughta practice a bit beforehand.
I can just see Trump suiting up with the NG...and reading the riot act from the WH steps before unleashing the dogs of war.
Anti-American DemoRats in action again; continually. They’ll riot when they lose big time this Nov.
.....have a street named blm and also stenciled on the road....
That’ll give the libs a wedgie.
If they’re making the city pay the rent then yes they mayor would have the power to say “no we’re not”. Kind of odd to make the city pay for it. At least up front.
The Guard Units were kicked out of a hotel by the D.C. mayor.A private hotel.How is that possible?
Is that dope paying for the Guardsman?I don.this think D.C. is large enough for its own guard unit.
Why can’t they tent up on the WH lawn like troops did in the Civil War.
Trump Hotel is down the road.
If they’re already there, they can’t be blocked by rioters!
