PROTESTS: “Congratulations to Governor Mike Parson of Missouri for having the courage to give Mr. and Mrs. Mark McCloskey a full pardon. They were defending their property and if they had not done what they did, their property would have been completely destroyed and they would have been badly beaten, or dead—great going Mike!”

-Donald Trump, “Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America,” donaldjtrump.com, August 11, 2021

[Note: Mark and Patricia McCloskey pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges for pointing their firearms at June 2020 protestors near their property in St. Louis, Missouri.]
