Trump Threatens 10 Years of JAIL TIME for People Who VANDALIZE Monuments, Statues

The Democrats have already allowed 20 to 30 million Illegals in our homes, now they want to destroy our property. This is no longer about George Floyd! BLM is actively trying to overthrow our Government and take our Freedoms.

 President Trump on Tuesday said people caught destroying or defacing statues or monuments on federal property will face up to 10 years behind bars.

He said he’s authorized the federal government to arrest anyone who “vandalizes or destroys any monument, statue or other such Federal property in the U.S.”
The president said violators will face up to 10 years in prison, “per the Veteran’s Memorial Preservation Act, or such other laws that may be pertinent.”
“This action is taken effective immediately, but may also be used retroactively for destruction or vandalism already caused. There will be no exceptions!” Mr. Trump said on Twitter.
Protesters tried to pull down a statue of Andrew Jackson near the White House on Monday evening but were thwarted by police.
Many activists have demanded statues of Confederate figures such as Robert E. Lee be taken down amid the ongoing calls for racial justice after the death of George Floyd while in Minneapolis police custody last month.
But there has also been a push to take down statues or monuments commemorating former U.S. Presidents such as Theodore Roosevelt, Ulysses S. Grant and Thomas Jefferson.
“They started off with the Confederate and then they go to Ulysses S. Grant. Well, what’s that all about?” Mr. Trump said in an interview that aired Tuesday on Fox News.
“And they would knock down Lincoln. There’s a group that wants to take down Lincoln. They haven’t figured out exactly why yet,” he said. “George Washington, Thomas Jefferson.”
“I’ve stopped them twice now from going over to the Jefferson Memorial,” he said.
He predicted that protesters will knock down the Jefferson Memorial if someone like presumptive Democratic nominee Joseph R. Biden is elected.
“Not going to happen,” Mr. Trump said.
