Trump Warns Monument Vandals “Please do not put yourself in jeopardy. Many people now under arrest!”

Wednesday morning, President Trump sent a stern warning to potential monument vandals, tweeting:

My Executive Order to protect Monuments, Statues etc., IS IN FULL FORCE AND EFFECT.

In excess of a 10 year prison term. Please do not put yourself in jeopardy. Many people now under arrest!

Tuesday, Trump warned vandals who threw paint on the George Washington statue in Manhattan were being tracked down.

Trump warned “They will be prosecuted and face 10 years in Prison based on the Monuments and Statues Act. Turn yourselves in now!”

Last week, Trump said he had ““authorized the Federal Government to arrest anyone who vandalizes or destroys any monument, statue or other such Federal property in the US”.”
