As a matter of fact, widespread protests did break out in America to condemn police brutality after the death of 46-year-old George Floyd. The African-American man died in Minneapolis police custody on 25th May 2020 under an officer’s knee.

Crowds gathered across Columbus to protest. On 28th evening, peaceful protests turned violent after some people started throwing objects at police officers. Police responded with tear gas and tried to push the crowd back.

Protests Outside The White House, Trump Flees?

From 29th May 2020, protests over the death of George Floyd flared around Washington, D.C. and the White House went dark. Rallies, marches and looting engulfed cities from coast to coast. Likewise, on 31st night, hundreds of protesters gathered outside the White House gates. They raised slogans, cursing President Trump and in some cases throwing bricks and bottles also. Protesters around Lafayette Square threw water bottles, set off fireworks, burned a pile of wood and at least one car. Amid the sensitive situation, for the sake of his safety, Secret Service agents rushed President Trump to the underground bunker used in the past during terrorist attacks.

At the time, Trump tweeted about immediate Law and Order and was out of sight later that night. The White House turned off at least some of its exterior lights and Mayor Muriel E. Bowser ordered a curfew. National Guard troops and other forces were deployed outside the White House. Consequently, there were some reportsif the condition at the White House is elevated to RED and the President is moved” to the Emergency Operations Center “Melania Trump, Barron Trump and any other first family members would be moved as well.” However, on Twitter Trump called them FAKE NEWS.

On the other hand, Donald Trump sent out a message from The White House. He said the death of George Floyd on the streets of Minneapolis was a grave tragedy.
