President Donald Trump announced Friday morning that the National Guard troops have arrived on the scene in Minneapolis, Minnesota to help local officials control the riots taking place in the city.
Democratic Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz originally activated the National Guard on Thursday evening after protests over the death of George Floyd while in police custody evolved into riots.
“The National Guard has arrived on the scene,” the president tweeted. “They are in Minneapolis and fully prepared. George Floyd will not have died in vain. Respect his memory!!!”
