Trump Says He Went To Bunker To ‘Inspect It’, Not Because Of Protests

Sky News:– Donald Trump says he went to an underground White House bunker for an “inspection”, rather than for protection from protesters.

The US president was taken to the facility amid demonstrations nearby on Friday, with reports at the time suggesting he had been there for almost an hour along with First Lady Melania Trump and their son, Barron.

But while the Republican admitted he had been to the bunker, he insisted it had only been briefly and had nothing to do with the protests.

It was much more for the inspection,” he told Fox News Radio.

“I was there for a tiny, little period of time.

“They said it would be a good time to go down and take a look because maybe sometime you’re going to need it.”

Mr Trump went on to repeat his threat of military action in New York, continuing his efforts to link civil unrest following the death of George Floyd to liberal leaders in the city.

“If they don’t get their act straightened out I will solve it. I’ll solve it fast,” he said.

The president also denied tear gas was used on peaceful protesters outside a historic church in Washington DC, to clear the way for him to stage a photo opportunity – contradicting the accounts of many who were present.

“They didn’t use tear gas,” he said.

“Now, when I went, I didn’t say ‘Oh, move them out.’ I didn’t know who was there.”

Having renewed his attacks on prominent figures including MSNBC anchor and former congressman Joe Scarborough and CNN presenter Chris Cuomo, he was asked why he chose to focus on such spats amid an ongoing national crisis.

“I just do it, you know, people hit me, I hit back,” he said.
