WASHINGTON (AP) — Police have fired pepper spray at demonstrators near the White House and the D.C. National Guard has been called in as pockets of violence erupt during a second straight night of protests over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and President Donald Trump’s response to it. Hundreds of people converged on the White House and marched along the National Mall. Protesters dragged away barricades and used concrete for projectiles. A trash bin was set on fire. The D.C. demonstration is one of several around the country protesting Floyd’s death. Trump appeared to cheer on the tougher tactics being used by law enforcement to disperse protesters.
