Harris: ‘Trump Just Tear-Gassed Peaceful Protesters For A Photo-Op’




Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) ripped into President Trump on Monday, accusing him of firing tear gas at peaceful protesters “for a photo op.”

“Donald Trump just tear-gassed peaceful protesters for a photo op,” Harris tweeted Monday.



Several loud bangs echoed before Trump took the podium at the Rose Garden as law enforcement fired tear gas and flash bangs into a crowd of peaceful protesters.

Minutes later, Trump walked from the White House to the St. John’s Church and held up a bible as he briefly took pictures with staff.

CNN’s Jim Acosta tweeted: “Police and members of the US military were deployed to clear out a protest so Trump can hold up a Bible outside of church.”

The View’s Joy Behar tweeted: “Fascism has come to America. Trump is actually holding a bible while guns are loaded. goodnight America.”

The move sparked outrage on social media.
