I spoke with @MayorJenny and her team about the situation on Capitol Hill. Although unpermitted, and we should remember we are still in a pandemic, the area is largely peaceful. Peaceful protests are fundamentally American, and I am hopeful there will be a peaceful resolution.
What we will not allow are threats of military violence against Washingtonians coming from the White House.
The U.S. military serves to protect Americans, not the fragility of an insecure president.
The Trump administration knows what Washington needs right now – the resources to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
If the president wants to show leadership, and that he cares about the people in this state, he should send us the PPE we’ve needed for months.
