Trump congratulated the misuse of force on twitter. Man, this guy is an asshole and wannabe dictator.
Vox wrote:Around the same time that Trump began this address, protesters were peacefully gathered in Lafayette Park near the White House. But they were cleared out of the park by federal law enforcement officers, who used tear gas and rubber bullets to remove the crowd.
Several minutes later, Trump emerged from the White House to have his photo op in front of the nearby church.
In response to this incident, Budde told the Washington Post that she is “outraged” by the president’s actions. “I am the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington and was not given even a courtesy call that they would be clearing with tear gas so they could use one of our churches as a prop,” Budde told the Post.
She also denounced Trump for holding a Bible “that declares that God is love and when everything he has said and done is to enflame violence.”
