U.S. President Donald Trump has ordered the National Guard’s withdrawal from Washington.
“I have just given an order for our National Guard to start the process of withdrawing from Washington, D.C., now that everything is under perfect control. They will be going home, but can quickly return, if needed. Far fewer protesters showed up last night than anticipated!”, Trump tweeted.
On Saturday, Trump criticized Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser, claiming he will authorize the use of armed forces in Washington DC if Bowser “doesn’t treat well” the National Guard.
