Protesters Rally in Front of Capitol, White House, as Trump Retreats to Presidential Bunker

HeadlineJun 01, 2020

In Washington, D.C., Secret Service officers confronted protesters outside the White House. Officials say President Trump took refuge in the White House bunker for an hour Friday night as hundreds protested. This is a protester speaking Saturday in front of the Capitol building.

Protester: “It does not matter what job you have, where you live, how many degrees you have. If your skin is black, you’re automatically a threat. As long as they use our skin color as a weapon, they will see us as a threat. We have to change the narrative today!”
