WH: Trump to invoke Insurrection Act if necessary

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany insisted on Wednesday President Donald Trump will invoke the Insurrection Act to enforce the use of military and the National Guard across the federal states if it becomes necessary.

Earlier in the day, Defense Secretary Mark Esper said he doesn't support invoking the Insurrection Act, as he still believes the National Guard is best suited for enforcing national law at the moment.

Commenting on the ongoing protests, McEnany stressed the decision to clear out protesters in front of St. John's Church in Washington DC was justified as demonstrators were violent towards police.
