June 1st, 2020. Amidst the BLM protests, Donald Trump utilized the power of law enforcement to forcefully “dispersed” the peaceful protestors in order to get a picture of him holding a bible in front of St. John’s. Law enforcement, wearing riot gear, hit these protestors with tear gas, batons, and rubber bullets at point-blank.
