President Trump Tweets FBI Wanted Poster of Andrew Jackson Statue Attack Suspects

President Trump tweeted an FBI wanted poster of suspects alleged to have been involved in the attack and attempted takedown of the equestrian statue of President Andrew Jackson in Lafayette Square in front of the White House on Monday that left the monument to the nation’s seventh president and surrounding cannons damaged.

FBI suspect one.

FBI suspect nine.

FBI suspect seven.

Before being driven off by late-arriving police, the attackers succeeded in getting ropes and chains around the statue and poured a liquid at the base in a likely effort to loosen its connection to the base. Graffiti was spray painted on the statue’s base.

Cannons set near the statue were damaged in the attack.

The FBI wanted poster shows fifteen suspects, most of them wearing coronavirus masks.

Trump commented, “MANY people in custody, with many others being sought for Vandalization of Federal Property in Lafayette Park. 10 year prison sentences!”

The poster was released Friday morning by the FBI:
