More than 130 police officers have been hurt as violent riots broke out among the protests outside the G20 summit in Germany. Many world leaders are attending the conference, including President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Now, First Lady of the United States Melanie Trump has been ordered to stay put in her guest room as police cannot guarantee her safety. This is madness!
The riots have been labeled as a “Welcome to Hell” protest by the 8,000 demonstrators who took part in the chaos. Not only have there been 20,000 uniformed police sent in to calm the situation, but water cannons an smoke bombs have also been deployed. However, nothing has subsided the chaos so far.
There have been reports that this is not even the worst of it. Demonstrators have also planned a riot for Saturday and police are warning people not to show due to it being a “Life-threatening situation.” They are reportedly expecting more than 100,000 protestors on Saturday.
Our FLOTUS also will not be allowed to attend the program tomorrow since her safety cannot be guaranteed.
“There are alarming signals. The situation escalates. The police must defend the fundamental rights,” Benjamin Jendro, a spokesman for the police union in Berlin, told Welt after announcing reinforcements. “Now these fundamental rights are stamped on by violent people. This is not just the police. But the whole society.” Here’s a video feed from the site of the riots:
As if the violence was not enough, there are also more than 500 masked participants outside the hotel where our Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is staying, as well as creating massive human shields in order to block world leaders from attending the summit.
It is utter madness. Pray for our leaders.
