After days of protests orchestrated by the American people, some protests turned violent. In fear that the violence might target the president, Special Operations teams were called in. The U.S. Army Special Operation guardsmen were sent in to protect and guard President Donald Trump. There was little violence Wednesday night, and many judged the choice to use Special Forces to intervene. A retired Green Beret told ABC news that the guardsmen were used because they are better trained in deescalating the situation.
