On Monday, President Trump told governors they need to be tougher in dealing with protesters that have been demonstrating across the country over the past week.

In a rare moment, Gov. Charlie Baker, a Republican, responded. He called the remarks by President about the demonstrations to that point combative and bitter.

Later that day, President Trump spoke from the Rose Garden. He threatened to deploy active military troops to U.S. cities if local leaders don't react strongly enough.
