Trump said, "I am your president of law and order and an ally of all peaceful protesters, but in recent days our nation has been gripped by professional anarchists, violent mobs, arsonists, looters, criminals, rioters, Antifa, and others"
He added, "I am mobilizing all available federal resources, civilian and military, to stop the rioting and looting, to end the destruction and arson..."
Meanwhile, experts hired by Floyd's family and the Hennepin County Medical Examiner have both concluded his death was a homicide.
While the independent experts said Floyd died due to "asphyxiation from sustained pressure," the medical examiner's office said the cause of death is "cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression." The latter made no mention of asphyxiation.
