As protests in response to the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers continued outside the White House, President Donald Trump was reportedly taken into an underground bunker by the Secret Service for about an hour Friday evening.
The report comes via CNN just now, where CNN senior national correspondent Alex Marquardt was reporting live from Washington, D.C. during a program hosted by Don Lemon.
Marquardt discussed the protests that had occurred in D.C. and many other cities across America over the past few nights. Like several other cities, D.C. has imposed a curfew, effective at 11:00 pm local time.
Marquardt noted that the protest had been peaceful during the day, but expected that it would start to get “violent”
