The Secret Service officers did not allow anyone to leave the White House.

Members of the Secret Service arrested at least one of the protesters near the White House, noting that police used pepper spray to disperse the protesters.

The killing of George Floyd sparked widespread anger in several places in the United States, where violent demonstrations and protests took place following the circulation of the video, and clashes erupted between the police and protesters, and many cars and installations were burned.

It is noteworthy that the African American citizen was pronounced dead in the hospital after being arrested by the police in a cruel manner in the city of Minneapolis, Minnesota, and social media posted videos of the accident.
