The President struck a blow for clearing St. John’s Church with tear gas to take pictures

President Donald Trump has been convicted because National Guardsmen and police beat George Floyd protesters with tear gas and rubber bullets to clear the area around St. John’s Church so that he could visit for a photo opportunity.

Washington DC Episcopal Bishop, Bishop Mariann Budde, condemned the President for using force to expel protesters without asking for official permission to “use the Church for support.”

The President spoke in a television speech from the Rose Garden on Monday evening, and tear gas bottles were heard in the background before he walked to church, which had been torched on protests on Sunday evening.

Budde was “outraged” at the president’s aggression, saying neither she nor the rector were told “they would clean up with tear gas so they could use one of our churches as support,” she told the Washington Post.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo also slammed the President as “embarrassing” for sending military force against protesters.

“I don’t want President Trump to speak on behalf of St. Johns,” Budde said Monday evening after the president’s visit.

‘I’m furious. I am the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington and did not even receive a courtesy call that they would clean up with tear gas so they could use one of our churches as a support, with a Bible, one that declares that God is love and when all he has said and has been done to fuel violence, “she added.

She said the diocese of Washington DC would distance itself from Trump.

“This is how we distance ourselves from this President’s messages. We believe that the teachings of our sacred texts are so fundamental to our life and everything we do and it is about love of neighbor and sacrifice love and justice, ‘added Budde.

She appeared on CNN Monday night, pounding Trump’s photo as an “ abuse of a sacred symbol to justify tackling this crisis that contradicts everything we stand for. ”

The protesters in the area seemed to act peacefully Monday night before being forced by the aggressive measures, including rubber bullets, pepper spray and tear gas.

Meanwhile, Trump said from the Rose Garden that he is an ally of peaceful protesters, but warned, “I am your president of public policy.”

The president posed for photographers and held a Bible while standing in front of the boarded-up 200-year-old church that has been visited by every president since James Madison.

“We have a great country. It doesn’t take long. It doesn’t take long to see what’s going on. It comes back and it comes back strong. It will be bigger than ever before, ‘said Trump, while the buzz of protesters, helicopters and explosions can be heard in the background.

New York Andrew Cuomo denounced the President as “embarrassing” for using military force to spread peaceful protesters on his own agenda.

“The president is calling on the US military against US citizens. He used the military to protest peacefully so that he could take a picture in a church. It’s all just a reality TV show for this president. Shameful, ‘Cuomo tweeted Monday evening.
