Trump Threatens ‘Incompetent’ Black DC Mayor During Friday Freakout

President Donald Trump does not sound like a fan of Washington, D.C.’s Mayor Muriel Bowser (D). After she reportedly ended hotel accommodations for at least some out-of-state members of the National Guard who had been dubiously dispatched to the city amidst intense protests against police brutality, Trump rushed to Twitter this Friday afternoon with a familiarly heated freakout. He threatened to dispatch other members of the National Guard to the city if the mayor doesn’t stop “fighting” with those who are already present. He thereby seemed to further establish himself as a wannabe dictator who’s ready and willing to militarily take over American territory.

Trump tweeted:

‘The incompetent Mayor of Washington, D.C., @MayorBowser , who’s budget is totally out of control and is constantly coming back to us for “handouts”, is now fighting with the National Guard, who saved her from great embarrassment over the last number of nights. If she doesn’t treat these men and women well, then we’ll bring in a different group of men and women!’

Besides the problems with Trump threatening to militarily occupy the United States in an attempt to insulate himself against protesters who he doesn’t like, there’s another problem: there’s barely even anything for the troops to do. Thursday night into early Friday morning, there apparently was not even a single protest-related arrest in D.C. Trump is trying to fight some kind of grandiose culture war that does not exist. He wants to use the chaos that he himself is personally trying to stoke to make his public image look good, but he just looks like a coward.

Besides his threat to send the military into a major American city if its mayor doesn’t do what he wants — which should be a lot bigger news — Trump also reveled on Twitter in his signing this Friday of an update to the forgivable loan program that has been established to support small businesses amidst the economic upheaval associated with the Coronavirus pandemic.
