Trump says there will be 'retribution' for those who deface monuments
By Brett Samuels - 06/25/20 10:06 PM EDT

President Trump on Thursday suggested unruly protesters who deface or topple monuments and statues will likely face "retribution," likening them to "terrorists."

Trump sat for a town hall with Fox News host Sean Hannity during a trip to Wisconsin. One attendee asked what the government was doing to "give us back our streets" amid national unrest over racial injustice and police brutality.

"Every night we’re going to get tougher and tougher, and at some point there is going to be retribution because there has to be," Trump said. "These people are vandals, but they’re agitators, but they’re really, they’re terrorists in a sense."

The president suggested it may be a matter of partisanship, claiming Wisconsin would not have seen unrest and a statue toppled a night earlier if Republican Scott Walker had been re-elected in 2018 over Gov. Tony Evers (D). He urged Republicans to worry less about being "politically correct, saying he has encouraged them to speak out against unruly protests.
