Standing Up to Trump

Muriel Bowser stopped Donald Trump’s attempts to take over the DC police after the murder of George Floyd. When Trump sent federal officers to the streets of DC to stop peaceful DC protestors, Muriel painted “Black Lives Matter” on the streets in front of the White House to send a bold message. Months later during the January 6 Capitol insurrection, Muriel Bowser quickly took action, tapping into DC’s own resources— including MPD and the National Guard—to keep us safe. Our Mayor showed the rest of the country what strong, proven leadership really looks like.
