Philadelphia seems unable to stop the mass rioting.

Philadelphia, PA – Rioters and looters are running rampant in Philadelphia Sunday as authorities appear unable to stop them.

Due to the worsening situation, the City of Philadelphia has ordered all businesses to close by 5 p.m., and has moved up their citywide curfew to 6 p.m.

“In order to fully enforce the 8 p.m. curfew, all retail establishments must close immediately. Any business owners or community members helping to secure businesses or clean up vandalized properties must finish those activities and return home by 5 p.m.,” the city said in a tweet shortly before moving the curfew up to 6 p.m.

President Trump took notice and suggested on Twitter that the National Guard should be called in to Philadelphia.

“Law & Order in Philadelphia, NOW! They are looting stores. Call in our great National Guard like they FINALLY did (thank you President Trump) last night in Minneapolis. Is this what voters want with Sleepy Joe? All Dems,” President Trump tweeted.

Video from the city shows that rioters have destroyed numerous police vehicles.

Over 20 police officers have been injured in the rioting.
