Former president Barack Obama, Democrat, funded a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) police force to provide law enforcement to protect federal property and buildings, similar to President Donald Trump’s use of DHS forces to maintain order during anarchist riots.
Obama used Bush's 2002 DHS law (40 U.S.C. 1315) to fund the Federal Protective Service (a division of DHS) for "criminal and terrorist countermeasures, such as vehicle barriers and close-circuit cameras; law enforcement response" according to his budget https://t.co/loEIDrFSDY pic.twitter.com/38P83MuvG8
