President Trump's Executive Order "Protecting American monuments, memorials, and statues and combating recent criminal violence" includes withholding federal funding from state and local governments that refuse to protect public monuments and memorials from destruction. Awesome!
Also, threatens to withhold federal funding from state and local law enforcement agencies that refuse to enforce the law and protect these monuments. No more watching statues get destroyed if you want federal funding.
In addition, he has instructed AG Barr to prioritize investigating and prosecuting individuals and organizations responsible for the destruction.
The Executive Order also instructs the heads of all executive departments and agencies to examine federal grants for jurisdictions and law enforcement agencies that permit the desecration of monuments, memorials, or statues. The President is not messing around.
President Trump is also authorizing the use of personnel to help protect federal monuments, memorials, statues, or property upon request.
