President Donald Trump announced Friday that he marked an official request to executive orders that American landmarks, monuments, and sculptures and cautioned the individuals who attempt to drag them down with “long prison time.”

I essentially had the advantage of denoting a strong Executive Order making sure about American Monuments, Memorials, and Statues – and combatting continuous Criminal Violence. 

The new order makes laws banning the profanation of public monuments, the demolition of government property, and new acts of violence withhold federal aid tied to public places from state and local governments that have abandoned to protect public monuments and bans federal grants for authorities and law enforcing agencies that decline to stop their profanation. 

On Friday evening, AG Bill Barr directed US govt for creation of STF to tackle anti-government extremists, specifically defining those who support the far-right “boogaloo” movement and people who identify as Antifa.

The task force are going to be headed by Craig Carpenito, the U.S. Attorney for the District of latest Jersey, and Erin Nealy Cox, U.S. Attorney for the district of Northern Texas, and can be composed of U.S. Attorneys’ Offices, the FBI and other relevant departments, consistent with a handout . The group will share information with local and state enforcement and can provide training on identifying anti-government extremists, consistent with an indoor Department of Justice memo. 

The president has been bothering his order connected with memorials all week, as famous monuments and statues became the objectives of anger and destruction during Black Lives Matter demonstrations within the wake of George Floyd’s police arrest death in Minneapolis at the top of May.

The original statues under attack were Confederate soldiers and officers largely within the South thanks to the processing of African-Americans, and even some high-level service officials involved the renaming of Army bases identified after Confederate generals. The anger has since expanded to monuments of recent presidents et al. considered to be “colonizers,” like Columbus, and even some who struggled against slavery.

On Friday night, rebels decide to try to level the Emancipation Statue of Lincoln in Lincoln Park. The statue presents the 16th president holding the Emancipation Proclamation next to a kneeling, bound slave. Protesters say it doesn’t represent the role slaves had in achieving their own freedom. 

Washington, D.C.’s congressional delegate, Eleanor Holmes Norton, said Tuesday she would start a House bill to boost the “problematical” statue. Last weekend rebels tied strings and tried to overthrow a statue of former president Jackson in Lafayette Square Park, but were arrested by enforcement.
