Trump Warns Breach White House Fence, Find 'Vicious Dogs, Ominous Weapons'

President Donald Trump praised the work of the Secret Service in defending the White House during a lockdown last night, despite the fact, he claimed, Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser would not allow D.C. police to get involved.

Trump also called the protests "organized," "sad," "professional managed," and have nothing to do with George Floyd's tragic death, adding a rebuke of another liberal Mayor Jacob Frey of Minneapolis was weak amid the unrest.

Trump wrote the Secret Service allowed protesters to "scream & rant" but came "down on them hard" when they "got too frisky or out of line." He also dropped a warning if anyone breached the White House gates, they would have been met with "the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons."

But Mayor Bowser rejected the claims, saying "there are no vicious dogs & ominous weapons. There is just a scared man. Afraid/alone."

Trump tweeted:

Great job last night at the White House by the U.S. @SecretService. They were not only totally professional, but very cool. I was inside, watched every move, and couldn't have felt more safe. They let the 'protesters' scream & rant as much as they wanted, but whenever someone....

....got too frisky or out of line, they would quickly come down on them, hard – didn't know what hit them. The front line was replaced with fresh agents, like magic. Big crowd, professionally organized, but nobody came close to breaching the fence. If they had they would....

....have been greeted with the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons, I have ever seen. That's when people would have been really badly hurt, at least. Many Secret Service agents just waiting for action. 'We put the young ones on the front line, sir, they love it, and....

...good practice.' As you saw last night, they were very cool & very professional. Never let it get out of hand. Thank you! On the bad side, the D.C. Mayor, @MurielBowser, who is always looking for money & help, wouldn't let the D.C. Police get involved. 'Not their job.' Nice!

"The professionally managed so-called 'protesters' at the White House had little to do with the memory of George Floyd. They were just there to cause trouble. The @SecretService  handled them easily. Tonight, I understand, is MAGA NIGHT AT THE WHITE HOUSE???"

These are 'Organized Groups' that have nothing to do with George Floyd. Sad!

"Mayor Jacob Frey of Minneapolis will never be mistaken for the late, great General Douglas McArthur or great fighter General George Patton. How come all of these places that defend so poorly are run by Liberal Democrats? Get tough and fight (and arrest the bad ones). STRENGTH!"

Mayor Bowser shot back in protest, too, admitting she does not agree with the U.S. president: 

"My police department will always protect DC and all who are in it whether I agree with them (such as those exercising their First Amendment Right) or those I don't (namely, @realdonaldtrump)...

"While he hides behind his fence afraid/alone, I stand w/ people peacefully exercising their First Amendment Right after the murder of #GeorgeFloyd & hundreds of years of institutional racism

There are no vicious dogs & ominous weapons. There is just a scared man. Afraid/alone..."
