JUST IN: President Trump unloads on the nation's governors on a call, calls on them to step up enforcement: "You have to dominate, if you don't dominate you're wasting your time".
Rollins, who heads the White House domestic policy council, said the White House is examining a list of possible bipartisan "solutions" focused on how to bring the country together. The Secret Service said that it does not discuss the methods of its protective operations.
Trump said the violence "is coming from the radical left", according to CBS News: [Y] ou know, it everybody knows it - but it's also looters, and it's people that figure they can get free stuff by running into stores and running out with television sets.
In the wake of his death, footage emerged on social media of a police officer kneeling on Mr Floyd's throat who could be heard telling him: "I can't breathe".
Protesters in Philadelphia hurled rocks and Molotov cocktails at police, officials said, while thieves in more than 20 California cities smashed their way into businesses and ran off with as much as they could carry - boxes of sneakers, armloads of clothes, and cellphones, TVs and other electronics.
After mounting public pressure, Chauvin was eventually arrested and charged with third-degree homicide and second-degree manslaughter on Friday.
White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany told Fox News that Antifa, an anti-fascist group, was "certainly behind" the violence. Hiding in the White House and turning off the lights is all on brand. The secret service agents and law enforcement officers found it hard to contain the crowd.
The president and his family have been shaken by the size and venom of the crowds, according to the Republican. The email also said that there was still an "elevated security posture" due to the protests.
Trump has been tweeting about the case and delivered lengthy remarks on the protests during a NASA event on Saturday.
While Trump has yet to deliver a formal address to the nation on Floyd's killing and the uprising it sparked, the president has tweeted out incendiary threats against demonstrators and criticized local officials for not cracking down harshly enough on the massive demonstrations. He said the protestors could have been attacked with "vicious dogs and ominous weapons" wielded by the Secret Service.
He also criticised the mayor of DC for supposedly failing to provide police to protect the White House.
"Big crowd, professionally organised, but nobody came close to breaching the fence". "I've never seen anything like it, and the whole world was laughing".
