President Donald Trump and his family were taking shelter as protests erupted in D.C.
Following the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police, protests have been aging all across the United States and in some of the biggest cities, there has been an increased police presence. Washington D.C. has been no exception to this rule and many protesters have been taking their efforts to the front of the White House. These White House protests have led to some very powerful images although the President and Secret Service don't seem to agree.
According to the New York Times, Donald Trump and his family were brought to a White House bunker that is designated for protection during terrorist attacks. "The president and his family were rattled by their experience on Friday night, according to several advisers,” the report states.

During the 9/11 attacks in 2001, Dick Cheney was moved to the exact same bunker which just goes to show how dire the Secret Service though the situation was.
Trump has been quite critical of the protests, noting that he plans to declare ANTIFA as a terrorist group. He has also sent the National Guard into cities like Minneapolis and Los Angeles as a way to stop people from causing any more destruction.
As these protests continue, it will be interesting to see what Trump's next move is.
