Controversy Surrounds Trump Church Visit, Dispersal of Protesters

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Media coverage of President Donald Trump's Monday appearance at St John's Episcopal Church in Washington D.C. has differed greatly along partisan lines. Coverage from many left-rated outlets and some center-rated outlets focused more on the purportedly excessive use of tear gas, flash bang grenades and other crowd control measures to clear the protesters prior to the president's arrival. Conversely, some coverage from right-rated outlets concentrated more on the fact that rioters set fire to the church the night before, while painting the president's appearance as a well-intentioned attempt to promote civility and faith.
