US cities erupt in more violence amid threats from Trump

WASHINGTON (AP) — American cities erupted in violence and destruction in a seventh straight night of unrest, with several police officers shot or run over, amid boasts and threats from President Donald Trump to send in troops to “dominate the streets.” The death toll nationwide has risen to at least nine, with over 5,600 arrests in the week since George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis touched off protests against police killings of black people.
