Explainer: Can Trump send the U.S. military to quell violence at protests? | Reuters

Across the United States, protests have broken out. People have been gathering to protest police brutality after George Floyd was killed while in police custody. Some of these protestors have been met with tear gas, police with bats and arrests. As a result, riots have broken out and led to the destruction of property across the nation. President Trump is using an act called the Insurrection Act to combat the riots to deploy military troops into cities to combat rioters and protestors.
