Protesters clashed with police on Monday in a park near the White House as they tried to tear down a statue of Andrew Jackson, the nation’s seventh president.Police moved into Lafayette Square with reports of pepper spray being used to clear the crowd.President Trump took to Twitter to say that “numerous people” had been arrested for what he called “disgraceful vandalism” of the “magnificent Statue of Andrew Jackson.” He suggested prison sentences of ten years. #BREAKING: Protesters have opened the fence surrounding the Andrew Jackson statue in Lafayette Square and have climbed on top. I’ve heard them say they’re trying to tear it down. @wusa9 #BlackLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/i8cBlM171b— Jess Arnold (@JessArnoldTV) June 22, 2020 Monday night, hours after Arroyo interviewed Trump, a group of protesters attempted to pull down a statue of Andrew Jackson in Washington D.C.’s Lafayette Park before being pushed back by police. President Trump will soon issue an executive order to protect public statues and monuments from being damaged or destroyed by far-left and anarchist protesters.“We are going to do an executive order and make the cities guard their monuments,” “This is a disgrace.” are Trump’s words.It’s about time DC police showed up to stop the mob. If Muriel Bowser won’t allow the police to do their job, @realDonaldTrump should deploy federal law enforcement to protect this 168-year-old statue and every other landmark in our nation’s capital. https://t.co/J6RUDTEbYh— Tom Cotton (@TomCottonAR) June 23, 2020 It will be interesting to see how the federal branch can impose its will on these cities and municipalities. Far-left activist Shaun King on Monday said all images depicting Jesus as a “white European” should be torn down including stained glass adorning churches. Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been. In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went?EGYPT!Not Denmark.Tear them down.— Shaun King (@shaunking) June 22, 2020

After the game, he deleted his Twitter account, possibly due to negative blow back from Twitter users.There’s also a side story of how when Hager arrived as a freshman, he vowed to not cut his hair until the Longhorns won a Big 12 title.
