(NewsReady.com) – Rioters have been toppling statues and vandalizing monuments they don’t like across the country. As a result, Washington DC and its historic property is especially vulnerable. Fortunately, President Donald Trump’s administration is stepping in to protect our history.
On June 23, Interior Secretary David Bernhardt appeared on “The Ingraham Angle” and said monuments on federal property are going to be protected. The secretary told host, Laura Ingraham, he requested “the National Guard be available” and ordered fences to go up at St. John’s Church as well as Lafayette Plaza.
I’ve requested additional federal resources, including the National Guard, to be available to protect America’s monuments. We will protect these places with dispatch and severity! pic.twitter.com/N2xMzl2ZWt

Trump has also ordered the arrest of people caught vandalizing statues and monuments, and said they’ll also face harsh prison sentences.
The commander-in-chief understands how important it is to preserve our history. It’s a shame so many others don’t.
