Peaceful Protesters Tear Gassed so President Trump Could Get a Photo-Op
President Trump took to TV to send a message of “law and order” on Monday night, while saying that he was an “ally of all peaceful protesters.” As he spoke, tear gas canisters were heard popping off in the background. Peaceful protesters were tear gassed outside St. John's Episcopal Church, where Trump was headed for a photo-op. Trump strode out of the White House, through the now-empty park, and posed for a grim picture with a bible. The photo-op was heavily criticized by the bishop of St. John's.
