It’s time for them to understand the consequences of their actions.
President Trump recently released a video where he stated that he will be stopping any type of “lawlessness” and will continue protecting American monuments and statues.
He said, “Lawlessness has been allowed to prevail. We’re not going to let it prevail any longer. I signed an executive order just a few days ago, and since then, it’s been very calm. They go to prison for 10 years if they hurt our monuments or our statues.”

Trump continued saying, “It started off with Confederate statues but then it went to George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln. went to people that were abolitionists, people who wanted to stop slavery. It went to anything because frankly it didn’t matter to them. Anarchists, agitators, looters.”
Seems like the rioters don’t care what they tear down as long as they can destroy things. Now it’s time for them to face the consequences. If they tear down the statues they get to go to prison. Read the full story here.
