President Trump advocated a “MAGA Night at the White House” on Saturday in response to a demonstration Friday night outside the White House gates in which protesters clashed with Secret Service and police.

Mr. Trump said the disturbance, which he watched from inside the executive mansion, had little or nothing to do with the killing of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis. He also said Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser wouldn’t allow Metropolitan Police to intervene, a charge she denied.

“The professionally managed so-called ‘protesters’ at the White House had little to do with the memory of George Floyd. They were just there to cause trouble,” the president tweeted. “Tonight, I understand, is MAGA Night at the White House???”
