Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser, who allowed rioting and burning in the city last weekend that went on until the National Guard was activated, has now evicted those troops from local hotels.

This is her latest move in an escalating war over National Guard deployed in the District with President Trump. 

Bowser is also requesting President Trump withdraw federal law enforcement agents and National Guard troops. They were brought into the city to restore law and order.

People are outraged over the move.

Meanwhile, two National Guard troops were sent to the hospital Thursday night after a lightning strike on the National Mall.
