Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser on Friday had “Black Lives
Matter” painted in large yellow letters on the street that leads
to the White House, and also designated the square in front of
Lafayette Park as Black Lives Matter Plaza.

“There was a dispute this week about whose street this is,” John
Falcicchio, Bowser’s chief of staff, wrote in a tweet.

“Mayor Bowser wanted to make it abundantly clear that this is
DC’s street and to honor demonstrators who [were] peacefully
protesting on Monday evening,” he added, referring to protesters
demonstrating over the May 25 death of George Floyd at the hands
of Minnesota cops.

Bowser, a Democrat who assumed office in January 2015 and has
clashed with President Trump over the feds’ aggressive response
to the protests, also tweeted out a video of the street shot
from above.

City staffers and local artists painted the large block letters
on 16th Street NW, and the work takes up two blocks on 16th —
which leads to both Lafayette Square and the White House —
between K and H streets.

Local artist Rose Jaffe said she and others joined city work
crews about 4 a.m., the Washington Post reported.

Later, a city worker hung a “Black Lives Matter Plz NW” sign at
the corner of 16th and H streets NW.

Bowser, who is African American, watched silently as onlookers
cheered and the song “Rise Up” by Audra Day played.

“In America, you can peacefully assemble,” she told the crowd,
the paper reported.

Bowser later tweeted: “The section of 16th street in front of
the White House is now officially ‘Black Lives Matter Plaza.’”

But the move did not impress DC’s Black Lives Matter chapter.

“This is a performative distraction from real policy changes.
Bowser has consistently been on the wrong side of BLMDC history.
This is to appease white liberals while ignoring our demands.
Black Lives Matter means defund the police,” the group tweeted.

DC’s shadow Sen. Paul Strauss said Bowser had the authority to
unilaterally order the moves, referring to Monday’s crackdown as
the capital’s “Tiananmen Square.”

“Thirty-one years ago troops in Beijing went into Tiananmen
Square and squashed a peaceful protest. And here in 2020 troops
came and quashed a peaceful protest right here and Black Lives
Matter Plaza will go down in our history as our Tiananmen
Square,” said Strauss, a Democrat.

“There’s more authority for a mayor elected by our people to
rename a Washington, DC, street than there is to force us to
quarter soldiers in violation of the 3rd Amendment to the
Constitution,” he continued.

The amendment reads: “No Soldier shall, in time of peace be
quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in
time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.”

“So, anybody can say whatever they want about due process, a
democratically elected mayor, exercising the people’s First
Amendment rights to rename their own street is far more
legitimate than anonymous troops coming in from out of town to
dominate their fellow Americans,” Strauss said.

The moves came days after the Park Police and National Guard
troops removed demonstrators who were protesting outside the
White House.

The crowd was dispersed so Trump could walk from the White House
to St. John’s Episcopal Church, which had been damaged by a fire
the night before.

While Bowser and Trump clashed over the use of force, the
president renewed his call for more forceful action against
protesters Friday, citing the crackdown in Minnesota as an
example.

“I hope that you also use our National Guard. Call me, we will
be ready with them so fast their heads will spin. We did it in
Minneapolis, in Minnesota, they were ripping that place apart,”
he said while delivering remarks on the positive May jobs report.

“I love it, we had such success there, and they were ripping it
apart. I called the governor and the National Guard went in and
in one night it was over. You do not see the problem in
Minnesota at all now, not even a little bit,” he said.

Bowser earlier Friday had demanded on Twitter that Trump
“withdraw all extraordinary federal law enforcement and military
presence from our city.”
