President Donald Trump on Sunday delivered what seems to be some good news for George Floyd protesters.
Americans, black and white, have been camping on major streets in the United States after a police officer killed a black man, George Floyd.
Those who have been staging protests on streets have been facing it rough in the hands of ruthless National Guards that were deployed to enforce the law and restore the order.
On Sunday, Trump has announced the new order that will see the National Guards leave from various cities including the Washington DC, where the White House is situated.
Trump noted that protesters had been controlled,
“I have just given an order for our National Guard to start the process of withdrawing from Washington, D.C., now that everything is under perfect control,” read Trump’s tweet in part.
However, Trump has warned that the most feared guards will be recalled if protesters flock in the city as they had earlier thought so.
“They will be going home, but can quickly return, if needed. Far fewer protesters showed up last night than anticipated!” he warned.
Americans have been staging all kinds of protests on major streets after the death of George Floyd.
George was working as a security personnel before his death.
He died in the hands of white police officers who were arresting him.
In the viral video, the deceased was seen pinned on the ground with the officer’s knees tightly placed on his neck.
He was heard calling for help after he felt difficulties with his breathing but nothing was done.
“I can’t breathe,” was a phrase that he said during his eleventh hour.
The phrase has since gone viral with several people across the globe using it to call out for his justice.
