    Esper orders National Guard in D.C. to disarm, wear caps not helmets; Protesters FLOOD nation's capital

    Defense Secretary Mark Esper on Friday ordered National Guard troops in Washington, DC, to disarm and wear soft caps instead of helmets, an official told Breitbart News on Friday afternoon. The official said the president told Attorney General Bill Barr that he wanted the National Guard to be armed so that they could protect themselves from rioters and looters coming in to the city, but Esper on his own told the D.C. National Guard leadership to take the weapons of National Guardsmen who were coming in from other states.

    “He’s not really on board with what the president is trying to do,” the official said.

    The Washington Post also reported that Esper disarmed National Guardsmen activated in D.C.:

    “Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper made the decision to disarm the guard without consulting the White House, after President Trump ordered a militarized show of force on the streets on the streets of Washington to quell demonstrations that were punctured by an episode of looting Sunday, two senior administration officials said. Trump had encouraged the National Guard to be armed.”

    Meanwhile, the United States Secret Service Special Operations Counter Sniper Team casually strolled through a crowd of protesters on their way to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute building a block north of White House. Watch below.

    Not to be outdone by Esper, Democrat D.C. Mayor Muriel Bower decided the real threat to peace in her city is the Utah National Guard.
