Protesters’ anger at Floyd’s death – which was seen in a video begging for breath as white officer Derek Chauvin pressed his knee to him – increased late Thursday night as rioters broke into and set fire to the police while playing baseball bats, axes and torches roamed the corridors.

“The National Guard has arrived. They are in Minneapolis and fully prepared. George Floyd will not have died for nothing. Respect his memory !!! he tweeted.

Trump has been criticized for responding to city protests.

Twitter flagged President Trump’s tweet, saying it was ‘glorifying violence’ for the second time after the official White House account reposted it on Friday morning.

These THUGS dishonor the memory of George Floyd, and I’m not going to let that happen. I just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him the army is with him all the time. Any difficulty and we will take control, but when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!’ read the tweet.

Trump initially posted it to his @ realDonaldTrump account at 1am.

The company posted a warning label on the tweet that it was breaking the rules.
