No small number of folks in the Republican party would demand exactly as the President said.I can't fucking believe I live in a country where the president tweets "when the looting starts, the shooting starts" JESUS H CHRIST. Twitter flagging it as glorifying violence might push him over the edge.
Remember, looting is rioting. Rioting is not protesting. Rioting is destruction. It is not uncommon to view police / military presence as to protect the victims of such violence, by any amount of force necessary to defeat the violent offenders on the streets. Especially with arson involved. These fires don't set themselves.
Trump is perfectly in line with the base on this one.
