Republican Senator Rand Paul revealed that Washington, D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser refused a Secret Service request to use city resources to provide better security outside President Donald Trump’s White House speech for the Republican National Convention, but she “refused” to do so.
Paul and his wife were mobbed by leftist rioters as he exited the convention. Bowser has previously ordered “Black Lives Matter” to be painted on a street in Washington near the White House.
Sen. Rand Paul writes in an editorial for Fox News (emphasis added): “My wife Kelley and I were attempting to leave the White House event.
We were staying at a hotel directly across the street, maybe 50 yards from the gates of the White House.
But as we went to leave, it became apparent there was no safe exit out the gates and through the unruly mob that had gathered there.
