US President Donald Trump in a late-night tweet  said that the New York Police Department won’t be able to control the violent rioters alone as the “radical left” has overpowered the law enforcement agency. The killing of Black American George Floyd has sparked off widespread protests in several US cities.

In his tweets, the President seemed to take an aim at NY Mayor Bill de Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo — who on Tuesday sparred over how to handle quashing of the violence.

“New York’s Finest are not being allowed to perform their MAGIC but regardless, and with the momentum that the Radical Left and others have been allowed to build, they will need additional help. NYC is totally out of control. @NYCMayor & @NYGovCuomo MUST PUT DOWN RIOTING NOW!” the President wrote on Twitter.


NY City extended an 8 p.m. (local time) curfew all week and banned much Manhattan car traffic overnight as officials struggled Tuesday to stanch destruction and growing complaints that the nation’s biggest city was reeling out of control night by night.
