(St. Louis, MO) — President Trump retweeted video of an armed couple defending their home from unarmed protesters.
The video shows a man holding an assault-style rifle and a woman with a pistol shouting at protesters walking toward the St. Louis mayor’s home Sunday evening.
The couple are identified as personal injury attorneys Mark and Patricia McCloskey.
They reportedly stood outside their home and swept their weapons toward the protesters walking through the gated community where Mayor Lyda Krewson lives.
The Riverfront Times reports the protesters were walking to the mayor’s house for a demonstration after she went on Facebook live and broadcast the names and addresses of people advocating to defund the police department.
