Trump Posts Wanted Posters Seeking People Allegedly Involved in Destroying Statues

President Donald Trump made more than a dozen separate Twitter posts on Saturday that included posters seeking information on 15 suspects who were allegedly involved in trying to tear down a statue of seventh President Andrew Jackson.

The posters included the statement, “The United States Park Police, in conjunction with the FBI Washington Field Offices Violent Crimes Task Force, is attempting to identify several individuals who are responsible for vandalizing federal property at Lafayette Square in Washington, DC.”

It said that on June 22, a group of people vandalized the Jackson statue at Lafayette Square near the White House. The FBI and U.S. Park Police are now trying to locate several people who were allegedly involved.

On Sunday morning, the president wrote that since he imposed a “very powerful 10-year prison sentence” on people who attempt to vandalize monuments and statues, “many people [are] being arrested all over the country” and “vandalism has completely stopped.”
