CNN’s White House correspondent Jim Acosta yelled at President Donald Trump Monday, wanting to know if America is “still a democracy” after air and ground troops from Washington DC’s National Guard were deployed around the District of Columbia.

Acosta Being Unprofessional Toward President Trump. Again.

Acosta shouted the question toward Trump as the President returned to the White House after visiting St. John’s Episcopal Church, the day after rioters entered the historic building’s basement and set a fire.

Acosta yelled, “Mr. President, is this still a democracy?” as shown by footage from CBS News’ Paula Reid.

Trump did not reply to Acosta, but also might not have heard the question.

President Trump: ‘I swore an oath to uphold the laws of our nation and that is exactly what I will do’

President Trump delivered a stern statement earlier on Monday regarding his next moves to stop further violent unrest in Washington D.C. and all over America.

“My first and highest duty as president is to defend our great country and the American people,” Trump said. “I swore an oath to uphold the laws of our nation and that is exactly what I will do.”

“If a city or state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them,” he added.

President Trump said he would uphold the law and protect private businesses from vandals.

“We have one beautiful law, and once that is fully restored we will help you, we will help your business, and we will help your family,” Trump said.

President Trump promised to deploy thousands of troops to prevent more violence in the nation’s capitol and noted that the 7:00 p.m. curfew would be enforced.

The notoriously anti-Trump Acosta tweeted out, “Remember these aren’t just Trump’s actions. There are WH officials and other federal employees carrying out these orders. He can’t do all of that alone.”
