Biden blasts Trump’s photo op in front of riot-damaged church

Washington (AFP) – US President Donald Trump spurred fresh outrage Monday after police used tear gas to clear protesters from outside the White House so he could pose for photographs at a nearby church damaged during civil unrest.

The move earned him a sharp rebuke from the city mayor, the Episcopal bishop, and leading Democrats including former vice president Joe Biden, who decried the use of force merely “for a photo.”

Trump’s visit to the historic St John’s Church, across the street from the White House came after he delivered an address denouncing vandalism that has followed anti-racism protests that have gripped the country for a week.

As he spoke, law enforcement — including military police — could be seen firing tear gas to clear peaceful protesters in Lafayette Park, outside the White House, so the president could walk over to the church.

    As I recall we did not have these racist problems before Obo and Biden got into office. They are afraid of Trump putting them in jail or at the end of a rope. If this was a white man on the ground with a afro- American holding him down and killing him Would We be having these riots? They are using the man dying as an excuse to vandalize the cities and rob the stores.
    I made a comment on the internet about afro-Americans keep bringing this up and mentioned what if we started saying Caucasian American or Italian American, etc and I was removed from that group. That is racist.

    The mayor is a democrat and Biden is an idiot. The bishop should worry more about the pedophiles he has for priests. These demonstrators lost the peaceful label the first night of violence!

      At least he came out into the public and did not stay in a bunker. He is a brave man and knows what he is doing or else we would be a communist country by now if the demos had won in 2016.
