St. John's Episcopal Church

At least one priest was among the people whom police cleared from the patio of St. John’s Episcopal Church ahead of President Trump’s visit Monday evening.

The Rev. Gini Gerbasi said in a Facebook post that she, along with the church's seminarian, were forcibly removed from the patio less than an hour before Trump arrived to take pictures in front of St. John's while holding a Bible. The patio clearing coincided with the use of tear gas to empty Lafayette Square outside of the White House to allow the president to travel on foot to the church.

“We were literally DRIVEN OFF of the St. John's, Lafayette Square patio with tear gas and concussion grenades and police in full riot gear,” Gerbasi said. “We were pushed back 20 feet, and then eventually - with SO MANY concussion grenades - back to K street.”
