Trump Tweet: Reaching out to protesters


After an estimated 15,000 people hit the streets in Boston Saturday, in response to a Free Speech rally by a small group of people, authorities breathed a sigh of relief when the day’s events ended with very little violence.

President Trump first tweeted his appreciation to the Boston Police for their success in keeping the event peaceful. Later Saturday afternoon, Trump reached out to the protesters themselves, in a two-part message.

“Our great country has been divided for decades. Sometimes you need protest in order to heal, & we will heal, & be stronger than ever before!” the president tweeted.

He then added, “I want to applaud the many protestors in Boston who are speaking out against bigotry and hate. Our country will soon come together as one!”

The police have reported they made 27 arrests, but all were for mostly minor offenses.  Police also reported a group of people were “throwing urine, bottles and other harmful projectiles at our officers,” and were throwing rocks as well.
