As hundreds of protesters gathered outside the White House on Friday evening, Secret Service agents rushed the president to an underground bunker.
Mr. trump and his team seemed taken off guard by the protests that materialized outside the White House on Friday night. Hundreds of people surged toward the White House as Secret Service and United States Park Police officers sought to block them. Bricks and bottles were thrown, and the police responded with pepper spray. At one point, an official said, a barricade near the Treasury Department next door to the White House was penetrated. After his evening in the bunker, Mr. trump emerged on Saturday morning to boast that he never felt unsafe and vow to sic “vicious dogs” and “ominous weapons” on intruders. What a guy, a real friend of the common man. A scared Melania Trump, anxious about the protests, opted at the last minute not to travel to Florida for the rocket launch on Saturday.
Protesters shouted “no justice, no peace,” and “black lives matter” as well as a chant targeting Mr. trump with an expletive while a phalanx of camouflage-wearing troops marched through Lafayette Square to reinforce the police lines. Crowds surged toward the riot troops, and some threw objects. Fires were set in a dumpster and a sport-utility vehicle, while glass windows were shattered at Washington icons like the Hay Adams Hotel and the Oval Room restaurant.
Looks like donald is reaping the hatred, anger and division that he has been sowing.
