Death of George Floyd: Trump threatens to deploy army if violence continues
President Donald Trump pledged on Monday to restore order to an America plagued by historic anger, threatening to deploy the military unless cities and states stop the violence. One week after the homicide in Minneapolis of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man asphyxiated by a white police officer, New York, Los Angeles and dozens of other American cities have strengthened their security measures, decreeing or extending a curfew nocturnal.
While Donald Trump was speaking in the entrenched-looking White House gardens, the police dispersed with tear gas hundreds of protesters gathered outside the compound. The objective was to clear the field towards Saint John Church, an emblematic building nearby which was degraded on Sunday evening. The president went there on foot, surrounded by members of his cabinet, to be photographed there, a bible in hand. Washington's Democratic mayor Muriel Bowser denounced a “shameful” dispersion which, according to New York State governor Andrew Cuomo, only served to offer the president “a photo session”.

It is time for the last maneuvers before the closure: the candidates for the second round of the municipal elections of June 28 have until Tuesday at the end of the day to deposit their lists, before the launch of a new campaign at the time of coronavirus.

The ax falls at 6 p.m., the cut-off time for the submission of nomination papers to the prefecture - often by appointment, for health reasons.
