President Donald Trump immediately ended his press conference talking about the violent rioters on Monday by walking out of the front door of the White House and walking across the street to the church that law enforcement officials say was deliberately burned last night by violent extremists.

Trump walked to the historic St. John’s Episcopal Church after someone set a fire in its basement last night while violent rioters were out front stealing an American flag from the church and lighting it on fire.

Once he reached the church he stood with officials from his administration and held up a Bible while talking to reporters and taking photos.

“D.C. police said a small fire was deliberately set in the basement. Under police escort, D.C. firefighters quickly extinguished it,” The Washington Post reported. “Fire department spokesman Vito Maggiolo said the blaze did not appear to cause any significant damage.”

The Daily Wire reported last night that Fox News correspondent Kevin Corke was the first to report on the fire as he led his camera crew over the church to show viewers what was going on.

“Unfortunately, I can add just a moment it does appear that St. John’s Church is on fire, the Parish office,” Fox News’ Kevin Corke reported live on air. “We went downstairs, and it is on fire.”

“This is awful,” Corke continued. “We saw graffiti, once the door was broken, we saw something similar happen earlier and as you can see there’s definitely a fire here.”

WATCH:

Former Acting Director of National Intelligence and current U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell praised the move, writing on Twitter: “The President of the United States @realDonaldTrump has just walked from the White House to St John’s Church where rioters set fire last night. It’s a triumphant moment of hope over fear.”

Influential radio host and political commentator Mark Levin tweeted: “The president’s walk through Lafayette Park, controlled the night before by rioters, to the burned out St. John’s Church, holding his bible in his hand, was truly historic. A fabulous moment of enormous important.”

Trump announced during a press conference prior to leaving the White House that he was putting an end to the violent rioters that have struck mostly Democrat-controlled cities.

“I am taking immediate presidential action to stop the violence and restore security and safety in America,” Trump said. “I am mobilizing all federal resources civilian and military to stop the rioting and your Second Amendment rights.”

“First we are ending the riots and lawlessness that has spread throughout our country. We will end it now,” Trump said. “Today I have strongly recommended to every governor to deploy the National Guard in sufficient numbers that we dominate the streets. Mayors and governors must establish an overwhelming law enforcement presence until the violence has been quelled. If a city or state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will quickly deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them.”

    Soros and his minions the NAZI Commie liberal party, Fake news, Antifa, CIA, FBI, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, The useful idiots, RINOs etc…are responsible for this rioting and destruction throughout the country. This treasonous act should not go unpunished! It’s about time these deep State rats are held accountable! Patriots, we need to save the country from turning into another Commie shit hole just like all the other lib run cities!!

    Bring in the military with live ammo and take care of business. These rioters are not there because of Floyd, they are there to cause chaos and wreak as much havoc as they can. If 20 or 30 body bags get filled with these dirtbags maybe soros’s money won’t look so tempting to them. Time to stop playing games with the enemy within and time to exterminate them. Keep up the great work Mr. President.

    I hope this line is a misprint!!//:: “I am mobilizing all federal resources civilian and military to stop the rioting and your Second Amendment rights.” Does this mean that President Trump wants to take away second amendment rights!! I sure hope not!! The right to bear arms is probably one of the reasons Trump is still standing!! The leftist scum KNOW if they try to eliminate THE PRESIDENT of the UNITED STATES, they will be dealt with by armed militia, who knows whose responsible and it won’t be pretty!! TRUMP 2020/ KAG!!!!

    After the Nv Gov denounced Trumps address this afternoon as being divisive, and that he is more than capable of handling the situation and everyone’s safety. Well, a Las Vegas police officer was shot in the back of the head execution style during tonight’s ” peaceful protest”. Yeah Steve , compassion and understanding of the protesters works really well huh? I am beyond words
