Continuing the tough talk on protesters and vandals whom are sowing unrest across the US while actively working to “destroy” our collective history, US President Donald Trump vowed on Tuesday to arrest anyone caught trying to tear down monuments or statues, they will be arrested and thrown into jail for up to ten years.
Trump added that the new order applies “retroactively”, meaning the numerous clips of mobs of hysterical leftists toppling statutes and spraypainting derogatory messages can be used as evidence against potential defendants. The FBI has also send in undercover protesters to take pictures of the vandals and collect any evidence such as license plate numbers, or fingerprint and DNA samples of the vandals for later charges and arrests.
“I have authorized the Federal Government to arrest anyone who vandalizes or destroys any monument, statue or other such Federal property in the US with up to 10 years in prison, per the Veteran’s Memorial Preservation Act,” the president said in a tweet on Tuesday.
…..This action is taken effective immediately, but may also be used retroactively for destruction or vandalism already caused. There will be no exceptions!

Once again, Trump’s order comes too little, too late as the SJW rage mobs have already turned their attention on institutions like the Museum of Natural History which has apparently started expunging its collection of artifacts depicting certain past presidents, like Theodor Roosevelt, a notorious and dedicated reformer frequently ranked among the top 10 greatest presidents.
However, these mobs have also vandalized statues and artifacts depicting leading anti-slavery figures. On Monday night protesters tried to pull down a statue of former US president Andrew Jackson near the White House before being dispersed by police. But not before videos posted to social media captured members of the mob climbing all over the statue, tying ropes around it and unsuccessfully trying to drag it off its pedestal.
President Trump: last night we stopped an attack on a great monument, the monument of Andrew Jackson in Lafayette Park, and I just want to thank the police force they did a great job… Really they did a great job. They stopped it cold. Numerous people are in jail and going to jail today. People are already there. But we’re looking at long term sentences under the act, we have a very specific Monument’s Act. We are looking at long term jail sentences.
