Trump praises handling of protests in Washington DC

United States President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that last night's protests in Washington DC were handled properly by authorities.

"D.C. had no problems last night. Many arrests. Great job done by all. Overwhelming force. Domination. Likewise, Minneapolis was great (thank you President Trump!)," he tweeted.

The protests over police brutality and racial injustice in Washington DC saw police fire smoke canisters and rubber bullets as a citywide curfew was enforced. Just before the curfew in DC kicked in, Trump threatened to use the US military to contain the mass demonstrations across the country.
