Prominent leftists accused President Trump of being a “fascist” after he solemnly walked to St. John’s Episcopal Church after authorities cleared out protesters in the area around Lafayette Park.

According to Breitbart News, the affluent leftists accused Trump of having the demonstrators “viciously attacked” for a “photo op.”

During a press conference in the White House rose garden, Trump told the press he would “pay my respects to a very, very special place.”

From there, Trump left, walking to the historic church that rioters targeted on Sunday night.

Authorities were ordered to clear the protesters out of the park before the city’s 7:00 p.m. curfew and Trump’s walk to the church.

“The President of the United States tear-gassed peaceful protestors in order to clear the way for a useless photo-op outside the White House—just after vowing to activate the military against our own people,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) raged:

“He’s using the American military against the American people. He tear-gassed peaceful protesters and fired rubber bullets. For a photo,” Joe Biden (D), the Democrat Party’s presumptive nominee, said in a post, echoing Warren:

Hillary Clinton joined in, “This is a horrifying use of presidential power against our own citizens, & has no place anywhere, let alone in America. Vote,” she pleaded:

“I don’t know anyone in ‘Antifa.’ But I’m against facism [sic]. And @realDonaldTrump is a fascist,” Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), a prominent Trump critic, asserted:

Of course, affluent and prominent celebrities, lawmakers, and political personalities joined in, and shared their thoughts.

As Breitbart News reported, the widespread depiction of “peaceful protests” has been largely inaccurate, as many protests have been dominated by looting, fires, and violence against officers:

Over the past three days, rioters outside the White House have violently clashed with Secret Service officers, torn down barricades, assaulted journalists (including Breitbart News reporter Matthew Perdie), vandalized historic buildings and monuments, and lit multiple fires, including one that caused damage to the historic St. John’s Episcopal Church, opposite the White House.

Riots and violence in D.C. and around the White House have led to a full mobilization of the D.C. National Guard. Several other National Guard units were activated in D.C. over the past three days ahead of full mobilization.

Such chaos is what seemingly drove the president to visit St. John’s Episcopal Church on Monday evening.
