President Donald Trump has dismissed the report that he went into hiding from protesters’, protesting George Floyld murder but claims he was at the (PEOC) for an “inspection”
He spoke about his brief stay at the underground White House bunker, called Presidential Emergency Operations Center (PEOC).
The facility serves as a shelter and communications center for U.S. Presidents and others in case of an emergency.
On Friday night, Donald Trump, wife, and son were taken to the bunker by the Secret Service when protesters of George Floyd’s death gathered outside the White House.
They were there for a little under an hour but Trump claims he went there for an “inspection” dismissing reports that it was for protection from the protesters.
“It was much more for the inspection. I was there for a tiny, little period of time. They said it would be a good time to go down and take a look because maybe sometime you’re going to need it”, he told Fox News Radio.
Trump emphasized the need to invite military action in New York if protesters won’t stop.
“If they don’t get their act straightened out I will solve it. I’ll solve it fast,” he said.
George Floyld was suffocated to death by a Minneapolis cop who put his knee on his neck while pinned to the ground over allegation of being in possession of fake $20 bill.
