President Trump on Saturday vowed to stop “mob violence,” as he condemned riots that have broken out amid what originally were protests across the country in response to Minneapolis man George Floyd’s death in police custody earlier this week.
The president has maintained that Antifa and other left-wing groups are to blame, while Minnesota officials claimed that white supremacists and other elements were involved in stoking violence.
The riots broke out across the nation after Floyd died in police custody on Monday.
Floyd, 46, died in police custody Monday night.
Meanwhile, Attorney General Bill Barr said Friday that the federal investigation into Floyd’s death and whether any federal civil rights laws were violated is "proceeding quickly."
