US President Donald Trump urged governors to become tougher against protesters against police violence. It is reported by the Associated Press.
вЂњYou have to arrest people, you have to track them down, you have to put them in jail for ten years, and you will never see this crap again,вЂќ said the American leader. Trump added that regional leaders will look like вЂњcretinsвЂќ if they don't.
Earlier, Trump decided to send additional federal forces to curb unrest in the country. At the same time, it is not yet known which units will be deployed.
Protests involving riots, vandalism, and police attacks spanned dozens of US cities. The reason was the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis (Minnesota), who died after a gross arrest.
During the clashes, two policemen received gunshot wounds, one of whom died. The US authorities said that any skirmishes with the police or threats to law enforcement would be regarded as acts of internal terrorism.
