Mass Text Sent From Women’s March Says Trump Encourages Police to ‘Beat & Kill’ Protestors
“We are all in danger,” the text read, despite no evidence to back up the claim.
According to a tweet from The Daily Caller author Mary Margaret Olohan, The Women’s March alert system texted a message this afternoon to its subscribers claiming that President Trump gave “the green light to beat & kill protestors.”

The text gave no further information about the claim, but merely directed supporters of their cause to join them and The Movement for Black Lives and sign a virtual petition demanding Trump’s resignation.
“We are all in danger,” the text read.
When asked by The Federalist to provide evidence for the baseless claim, and about how many people received the false text message, the Women’s March did not respond.
Just last week, a PBS NewsHour White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor came under scrutiny for her comments that there was “no evidence” that any of the protests of George Floyd’s death were the results of “anarchists” as President Trump previously claimed.
“These people are anarchists,” President Trump says without providing any evidence. https://t.co/P7HGwsbKWD
