Vor Pro-Trump-Demo in Washington
Capital ban for “Proud Boys” leaders
Shortly before a pro-Trump event in Washington, the police arrested the leader of the “Proud Boys”. Although the head of the Trump supporters is at large again – he still has to leave the US capital for a long time.
The leader of the right-wing radical group “Proud Boys” must leave Washington before a demonstration by supporters of the elected US President Donald Trump. A judge in the US capital released Henry “Enrique” Tarrio on Tuesday (local time), according to US media. The 36-year-old from Miami was ordered to stay away from Washington until his next court hearing on June 8th.
The police arrested Tarrio on the Monday after his arrival in Washington because of an arrest warrant for damage to property against him. Court records indicate that Tarrio is alleged to have been involved in the burning of a “Black Lives Matter” banner that was stolen from a church on the sidelines of a pro-Trump demonstration last month.
Tarrio had frankly admitted the act in an interview with the Washington Post. According to police, Tarrio was also carrying two firearms magazines when he was arrested, which is illegal in Washington.
Meanwhile, Trump announced that he would personally address his supporters during the protests against the election results planned for Wednesday near the White House. “I’ll speak at the Save America demonstration tomorrow,” the Republican wrote on Twitter. Two hours later, the US Congress wants to meet to certify the results of the presidential election in the states on November 3.
The Democrat Joe Biden has clearly won the election according to the official results of the states. Trump is sticking to his unsubstantiated claims that Biden could only have won through massive fraud.
