Violent protest sparked by the police killing of George Floyd continues in cities across the US on Sunday night, as fires burned close to the White House.
The presidential building’s exterior lights were briefly shut off.
It has emerged that Donald Trump was taken by Secret Service agents to an underground bunker on Friday night as protesters moved close to the White House, according to reports.
It comes as the president vowed to designate the militant left-wing demonstrators commonly known as “Antifa” a terrorist organisation.
He also attacked Democratic mayors and governors for failing to call in the National Guard to deal with “anarchists”.
