The US Secret Service have said that six people were arrested in Lafayette Park last night during demonstrations, a statement from the federal law enforcement agency said.
Multiple Secret Service uniformed division officers and special agents sustained injuries after violence from some of the demonstrators, the statement said.
Some more context: The statement also said that Metro Police and US Park police were on the scene, which contradicts an earlier tweet from President Trump.
Trump criticized Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser saying, “On the bad side, the D.C. Mayor, @MurielBowser, who is always looking for money & help, wouldn’t let the D.C. Police get involved. “Not their job.” Nice!”
