After a night of chaos, law enforcement has forced a group out of the zone in front of the White House that’s been labeled “Black Lives Matter Plaza”.
The group tried to set up a Seattle-style “autonomous zone,” which they called the “Black House Autonomous Zone.” On Tuesday the police moved the protesters out and cleared the area near Lafayette Square and St. John’s Episcopal Church.
The night before the group also tried to take down the statue of Andrew Jackson.
“Defund the Police” street graffiti was also removed from the area on Tuesday.
Tuesday morning President Trump said that protesters who attempted to establish an “autonomous zone” in the nation’s capital would be met with “serious force” after a night of police clashing with the protestors.
“There will never be an ‘Autonomous Zone’ in Washington, D.C., as long as I’m your President. If they try they will be met with serious force!”

Twitter placed a warning over Trump’s tweet saying it violated their rules about “abusive behavior”. But you can still hit “view” and see the tweet.
It seems Twitter is siding with this anarchist group that overtook Seattle with force. In the C.H.O.P area, people are being held hostage and one man was killed this past weekend. And Twitter is concerned that President Trump authorizes force to keep them from setting up another “autonomous zone”? I think they have their priorities messed up.
Yet Twitter allows this tweet with no violation warning. Seems they are only concerned about “abusive behavior” when it comes to the president which they hate.
