Donald Trump threatened the suspects accused of throwing paint on a George Washington statue in New York with “10 years in prison” in a tweet, taking his feud with activists toppling monuments a step further.
“We are tracking down the two Anarchists who threw paint on the magnificent George Washington Statue in Manhattan”, the president claimed, adding: “We have them on tape.”
“They will be prosecuted and face 10 years in Prison based on the Monuments and Statues Act,” he added. “Turn yourselves in now!”
