Protesters will no longer be able to bring down monuments of federal significance, no matter what the meaning. US President Donald Trump (Donald Trump) will sign an order to protect public monuments and statues.
The order will protect all the most important monuments and make vandalism or any destruction a criminal offense, reports Fox News. Trump will approve this decision before the end of the week.
The president previously tweeted that people who ruin, damage, or destroy federal monuments and statues should get “up to 10 years in prison.”
“I authorized the federal government to arrest anyone who vandalizes or destroys any monument or other similar federal property in the United States with up to 10 years’ imprisonment, in accordance with the Monument Preservation Act or other such laws that may be relevant. It can also be used retroactively for harm already done, ”Trump said.
Amid mass protests in the USA, monuments that may be associated with the Confederation, including President Theodore Roosevelt, are being massively removed.
