President Trump walked out of the White House to stand in front of the historic St. John’s Church and hold up a Bible, which was set on fire by rioters the previous night.
The president was accompanied by AG Barr and Press Secretary McEnany.
President Trump’s symbolic gesture solidifies his support for the constitutionally protected religious freedoms that many far-left politicians and their supporters wish to destroy.

President Trump was also seen with first lady Melania visiting the Saint John Paul II shrine in an effort to further show the need for the country to return to peace and prayer.
Republican Senator Tim Scott criticized leftist politicians for provoking more violence and blaming President Trump instead of coming together peacefully to solve the crisis.
“What we really need is the enemy of chaos, is order. We need order. We need structure. We need discipline,” said Senator Scott.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany slammed rioters for their destruction and vandalization of national monuments such as St. John’s church and the Lincoln Memorial, where Martin Luther King Jr. gave his ‘I Have a Dream’ speech.
“The Lincoln Memorial defaced. How does that make much sense? The place where the March on Washington began. That momentous occasion in the history of civil rights. That memorial was defaced last night. That doesn’t honor the legacy of George Floyd. It doesn’t. And certainly not the burning of St. John’s Church,” explained Secretary McEnany.
McEnany condemned violent anarchists and Antifa for taking advantage of people’s pain to cause destruction. She also called for Americans of all backgrounds to unite against further defacement of historical landmarks.
“Those are violent anarchists, Antifa, who are taking advantage of the pain of people, the pain of the peaceful protesters. It’s inexcusable and we have to stand as one America against the burning of the church and the defacement of the Lincoln Memorial.”
