Protesters took to the streets on Monday in Washington, D.C. just hours after U.S. President Donald Trump addressed the nation on the ongoing protests rocking many U.S. states.

In his televised remarks, Trump said a 7 p.m. curfew would be “strictly enforced” within Washington D.C. as well, promising lengthy jail sentences and severe criminal penalties for anyone caught breaking the law.

According to The Associated Press, between 600 and 800 National Guard members from five states were now being sent to assist the U.S. capital, citing senior defence officials.

Earlier on Monday, Trump had mocked the nation’s governors as “weak,” demanding that they enforce tougher crackdowns and more arrests in their states amid another night of violent protest in several American cities.

The protests, which were sparked by the death of George Floyd — a Black man who died of suffocation after a video showed a white Minneapolis police officer with a knee on Floyd’s neck — have now entered their second week.

If you want a race war bring it, the silent majority will be waiting, I don't think you understand what you're asking for.

Ronald Cottrell says:

Liberals and Democrats absolutely love race wars, they create it they stir it up, they use it in every instance they can if they think it'll gain them votes, otherwise you're exactly what they think you are, a number ,
How ignorant these millennials are easily manipulated by propaganda and the give me free crowd, pay my debts for me even though I put my name on the dotted line deadbeats.

Finally lots of people left their parents' homes and started doing some exercise.

Kathy Hudgins says:

There was a curfew and the protesters were told to turn back 3 times. The only ones here that were breaking the law WAS the protesters. I have one question, why do they need to protest after dark…after curfew? I am on their side but when they can't obey the law, I can not go along with that
