On Saturday, President Trump reaffirmed he loves the city of Minneapolis and emphasized “they’ve got to be tough” during this time. Ahead of his departure to Florida, the president weighed in on the recent riots. He explained he’s “never seen something so horrible” as the fire at the city’s police precinct earlier this week. He added seeing the police station abandoned with officials running away from the facility was terrible.
The president went on to say the military is ready to step in if necessary.
“They’ve got to be tough, they’ve got to be smart. We have our military ready, willing and able… We can have troops on the ground very quickly if they ever want our military.” – Donald Trump, 45th President of the United States
