Trump tells NYC to activate National Guard: 'The lowlifes and losers are ripping you apart!'
"After vowing Monday to deploy military force to restore order in states that fail to “dominate” unlawful demonstrations, President Trump on Tuesday all but ordered New York City to request help from the National Guard.
“NYC, CALL UP THE NATIONAL GUARD,” Trump tweeted. “The lowlifes and losers are ripping you apart. Act fast! Don’t make the same horrible and deadly mistake you made with the Nursing Homes!!!”
Parts of New York City, including midtown Manhattan, were rocked by disorder Monday night, despite an 11 p.m. curfew. Mobs clashed with police and broke into the iconic Macy’s store on Herald Square and other nearby shops.
“Macy’s at 34th. Street, long the largest single department store anywhere in the world, & a point of pride in NYC, was devastated yesterday when hoodlums and thieves vandalized it, breaking almost all of its large panels of storefront glass,” the president fumed. “What a shame. Bring in National Guard!”
Trump mocked the 11 p.m. curfew as a weak response, tweeting: “New York City put on an 11:00 P.M. CURFEW last night. No wonder they ripped the place apart. Should be 7:00 P.M. CALL UP THE NATIONAL GUARD. #SAVENYC.”
The curfew was moved up to 8 p.m. on Tuesday and extended for the rest of the week.
“Yesterday was a bad day for the Cuomo Brothers,” Trump tweeted, referring to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his brother, CNN host Chris Cuomo.
“New York was lost to the looters, thugs, Radical Left, and all others [sic] forms of Lowlife & Scum,” the president continued. “The Governor refuses to accept my offer of a dominating National Guard. NYC was ripped to pieces. Likewise, Fredo’s ratings are down 50%!” Fredo is the president’s derogatory nickname for Chris Cuomo.
I hope the protesters or cops don't kill Macy's Santa Claus
