US President Donald Trump has threatened military mobilisation against those protesting the death of George Floyd.

Floyd, an unarmed African-American man, died in the custody of Minneapolis police when an officer knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes. Protests have been taking place across the United States.

Just minutes after Trump's remarks, police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at peaceful protestors near the White House to clear the streets for a photo opportunity for the president at a church.

Cal Thomas and Marion McKeone joined us from the United States to discuss the situation.
