[Ed. – As we noted earlier, the McCloskeys are under threat of indictment – from a local attorney, Kimberly Gardner, who also released 35 “protesters” who had torched and looted downtown St. Louis. Gardner, like a growing number of city and county attorneys, received campaign support from George Soros in 2016.]
Speaking during an exclusive interview with Townhall Tuesday morning from the White House, President Trump defended St. Louis residents Mark and Patricia McCloskey after they fought for their lives and property against a trespassing mob.
“When you look at St. Louis, where two people, they came out. They were going to be beat up badly if they were lucky. If they were lucky. They were going be beat up badly and the house was going to be totally ransacked and probably burned down like they tried to burn down churches. And these people were standing there, never used it and they were legal, the weapons, and now I understand somebody local, they want to prosecute these people. It’s a disgrace,” Trump said.
