President Trump has ordered a crackdown on anyone caught vandalizing or tearing down monuments amid a wave of confederate and other statues being toppled by people protesting racial injustice.

The commander-in-chief wrote in a tweet early Tuesday morning, “I have authorized the Federal Government to arrest anyone who vandalizes or destroys any monument, statue or other such Federal property in the U.S. with up to 10 years in prison, per the Veteran’s Memorial Preservation Act, or such other laws that may be pertinent.”

Trump warned those protesting that the order will be “effective immediately, but may also be used retroactively for destruction or vandalism already caused. There will be no exceptions!”

Speaking to reporters as he left the White House to visit portions of the border wall in Arizona, Trump said he would soon be signing an executive order that would allow people vandalizing statues to be prosecuted.

“We are looking at long-term jail sentences for these vandals, and these hoodlums, and these anarchists and agitators – call it whatever you want – some people don’t like that language but that’s what they are,” the president said. “They’re bad people, they don’t love our country, and they’re not taking down our monuments, I just want to make that clear.”

He also said his administration was poised to help state and city governments that are struggling to contain the protests.

“In Minnesota, they might need help. If they need help, the federal government is willing to help them,” he continued. “These are not protesters, by the way, these are anarchists, and other things. If these hoodlums come around and the states can’t handle it, we are ready, willing and able to help.”

These comments echo previous remarks the president made to Fox News Monday night, where the commander-in-chief pledged to sign an executive order on the matter, which would force cities to guard the monuments.
