Protesters looted shops on Sunday and set fire to various locations in Philadelphia-prompting President Trump to urge the Governor of Pennsylvania to call the National Guard.
“Now, the law and order in Philadelphia!” Trump tweeted. They are robbing the store. Just like what we did last night in Minneapolis (thanks to President Trump), call our great National Guard.
