(PatrioticPost.com)- After President Donald Trump called in the National Guard to quell violence in Washington, D.C., far-left Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser got particularly angry. She railed against the president on social media and television, and went as far as ordering hard-working members of the National Guard out of the city’s hotels.
On Sunday, however, President Trump announced that his decision to bring in the National Guard was ultimately the right one. Speaking on Twitter, the president announced that he was withdrawing the guard as violent protests have begun to subside.
“I have just given an order for our National Guard to start the process of withdrawing from Washington, D.C., now that everything is under perfect control,” he said.
I have just given an order for our National Guard to start the process of withdrawing from Washington, D.C., now that everything is under perfect control. They will be going home, but can quickly return, if needed. Far fewer protesters showed up last night than anticipated!

“They will be going home, but can quickly return, if needed. Far fewer protesters showed up last night than anticipated!” he added.
The decision shows how effective the National Guard can be in stopping people running riot and overpowering limited police resources, but President Trump also acknowledged the possibility of violence returning as soon as the National Guard leaves. Protests, or riots, have continued to spread across the country. The violence has even reached the United Kingdom, where left-wing radicals protested in the city of Bristol and tore down a statue that was erected in 1895.
The National Guard deployed more than 5,000 of its people, including airmen, to the nation’s capital.

They manned traffic control points, aid stations, and protected people from violent protesters who smashed up stores, looted, attacked innocent people, intimidated people trying to go about their business, and even set alight the famous St. John’s Episcopal Church.
Fox News reported that some 200,000 people took to the streets of D.C. in just one day.
