Before Departing for Arizona, in reference to protesters trying to topple a statue of Andrew Jackson and to establish 'Black House Autonomous Zone', Donald Trump said

We are looking at long term jail sentences for these vandals, these hoodlums and these anarchists, and agitators, call them whatever you want. Some people don’t like that language but that’s what they are. They’re bad people. They don’t love our country. And they are not taking down our monuments. I just want to make that clear.
