Trump's Use of Force Against Peaceful Protestors Monday Night

In response to Donald Trump’s recent decision to forcefully disperse peaceful protestors outside of the White House to stage a photo-op, Terrie Rizzo, Florida Democratic Party Chair, released the following statement:

“Let’s be very clear: Donald Trump just used teargas on peaceful protesters outside the White House because he wanted to show off his power. These people were not being destructive or violent, just raising their voice against racism in our nation’s capital. This is the United States of America and we have the right to peacefully protest, whether that’s in Washington D.C. or Miami. A president who encourages violence against peaceful protesters is a threat against our democracy. Donald Trump is acting like a dictator, not a president — and we must show him who truly has the power by turning out to vote November 3rd.”
