American cities erupted in violence and destruction in a seventh straight night of unrest, with several police officers shot or run over, amid boasts and threats from President Donald Trump to send in troops to ``dominate the streets.''
The death toll nationwide has risen to at least nine, with over 5,600 arrests in the week since George Floyd's death in Minneapolis touched off protests against police killings of black people.
Trump has threatened to deploy the United States military unless states halt the violent protests that have gripped cities from coast to coast.
Trump said yesterday he was recommending governors deploy the National Guard in sufficient numbers to ``dominate the streets.''
The president says if governors fail to take action, he will deploy the United States military and ``quickly solve the problem for them.''
