More than 50 Secret Service agents have been injured during ugly clashes outside the White House on a sixth night of violence sparked by the death of George Floyd.
The attacks came after President Trump was reportedly moved to a secure bunker usually used during terror attacks as heated protests escalated across Washington D.C.
Agents rushed Trump to the Presidential Emergency Operations Center as they were nervous for his safety, the New York Times reported.
A senior official involved in defending Washington D.C. later told Fox News dozens of Secret Service officers were injured in clashes on Sunday night.
The source also claimed some rioters were seen throwing bottles and Molotov cocktails at law enforcement officers.
Others were spotted parking cars near the 'President's Palace' filled with incendiary materials for future use, Fox News reported it was told.
