Trump calls for arrest for suspects of tearing down Andrew Jackson statue. And let...

U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday called for the arrest of protesters involved in an attempt to tear down the statue of former U.S. President Andrew Jackson from a park in front of the White House.

Through several tweets, the head of state demanded the arrest for protesters in the incident that occurred this week and shared police appeals with photographs of the 15 protesters wanted for “vandalization of federal property.” He wrote: “MANY people detained, with many more being sought for vandalization of federal properties in Lafayette Park. 10 years in prison!”

The ruler also announced saturday that he signed an executive order to protect monuments, memorials and statues. Also via Twitter, Trump revealed that he abandoned plans to spend the weekend at his Home in New Jersey to stay in Washington and “ensure that law and order are fulfilled.” “These arsonists, anarchists, and agitators were largely prevented,” Donald Trump wrote, adding:

I am doing what is necessary to keep our communities safe – and for those people to be brought to justice!”.

In the context of the racial protests of recent weeks in the United States, triggered by the murder of African-American George Floyd by police, numerous statues were attacked. The main objective of the contestatories have been the Confederate symbols —defenders of slavery during the War of Secession—but statues of Spanish conquistadors and the “founding fathers” of the United States were also attacked.

On Monday night, federal police prevented a group of people from tearing down a statue of Andrew Jackson located a few feet from the White House. Jackson is one of Trump’s favorite presidents.

George Floyd, a 46-year-old African-American, died May 25 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, after a white police officer pressed his neck with one knee for about eight minutes in an arrest operation, though Floyd said he could not breathe. Since the social media broadcast, protests against police violence and racism have taken place in dozens of U.S. cities, some of which have been the scene of looting.
