Mayors and Governors must establish an overwhelming law enforcement presence until the violence has been quelled, Trump noted.

US President Donald Trump on Monday said that his administration is fully committed to George and his family and justice will be served.

In recent days our nation has been gripped by professional anarchists, violent mobs, arsonists, looters, criminals, rioters, Antifa and others, Trump said and urged the state governors to deploy the National Guard in sufficient numbers that will dominate the streets. 

Mayors and Governors must establish an overwhelming law enforcement presence until the violence has been quelled, Trump noted.

''We are putting everybody on warning, our 7 o'clock curfew will be strictly enforced. Those who threaten innocent life and property will be arrested, detained and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,'' Trump said. 

''If a city or state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents then I will deploy the United States Military and quickly solve the problem for them,'' he said.
