Trump calls for National Guard to help stop ‘smash-and-grab’ looting: ‘It is all not even believable’
Former President Donald Trump called for states to deploy the National Guard to help deal with rampant retail looting, or “smash-and-grab” incidents, in a Tuesday statement.
Trump said that if the Democratic politicians in charge of cities where the mass lootings are taking place don’t take action, the National Guard “must be called out.”
“If Democrats don’t immediately stop smash-and-grab robberies, which are taking place in their cities, the National Guard must be called out. There has never been such a thing that has happened in our Country,” Trump said in the statement. “Large numbers of stores are leaving San Francisco and other cities. Some chains are closing most of their stores, it is all not even believable.”
