President Trump Trump tells governors: some of you are weak, urges them to use force against violent thugs
NOTE: President Trump bluntly told the nation's governors he is behind them all the way and has the resources to help them in handling large scale violence organized by the Domestic Terrorist group Antifa. Some in the media like MSN and Washington Post are afraid that thousands of their violent friends will end up spending 10 years in prison, no doubt.
President Trump on Monday berated the nation's governors on a conference call, describing them as "weak" in the face of growing racial unrest (correction: violent riots burning entire cities) and urging them to try to "dominate" unruly protests (correction: violent riots) , according to three people on the call who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the private conversation. (correction: President Trump as blunt as always in direct conversation.)
Trump also called on the governors to take back the streets and use force to confront protesters. He said if they did not, they would look like "fools," alarming several governors on the call as they communicated privately, according to the officials.

"If you don't dominate you're wasting your time," Trump said, according to a person on the call.
Trump told the governors that "you have to use the military" and "we have a wonderful military," and he mused about the Occupy Wall Street movement and said it was a "disgrace" that was ended by governors and mayors being tough.
The president said that people arrested at the protests (note: performing violence, assault, burning, attacks) should serve 10-year prison sentences, according to another person familiar with the call.
"You're allowed to fight back," he said describing the situation as a "war." "Now maybe my attorney general will stop me from saying that & but you are all big, tough, strong people and you are allowed to fight back."
