In US news and current events today, Attorney General Bill Barr reportedly ordered police to forcefully disperse a crowd of peaceful protesters using tear gas and flash bangs in order for President Donald Trump to stage a photo op with a bible in front of St. John's church in Washington D.C. The Black Lives Matter protests have been ongoing for a week, following the police killing of George Floyd. Protests have sprung up in over 140 cities in America and across the globe, but President Trump has offered little in the way of calm and reconciliation. Rev. Mariann Edgar Budde, the bishop who oversees St. John's Episcopalian Church in Washington DC, was outraged over the use of force on peaceful protesters and church clergy by Donald J. Trump. Bible in hand, Trump posed awkwardly for a photo and then walked away from the chaos, but many are calling this an abuse of power and a dangerous stifling of the 1st Amendment right to peaceful protest. #BlackLivesMatter #BLM #Trump #GeorgeFloyd #StJohns #Trump #TrumpBible #Protests #BLMProtests #GeorgeFloydProtests #2020 #News #NowThis #NowThisNews This video "Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde Slams Trump for Church Photo-Op", first appeared on https://nowthisnews.com.
