Plywood panels cover the storefronts across the United States as cities anticipate violence following election night. It is something everyone is preparing for and anticipating but it is one everyone hopes will not come to fruition.

Retailers and communities across the country are still recovering from the widespread damage caused by riots this summer after the death of George Floyd, a black man, who was killed by a white Minneapolis police officer. The Floyd killing sparked months of riots and other police officer shootings over the past several months have led to growing riots and violence around the nation.

Out of an abundance of caution, like many businesses, we are implementing additional security measures at certain locations in the event of civil unrest due to the current election.

On Election Day, police officers and security officials are being extra cautious in preparation for the election results. Companies are putting additional security measures in place to prevent any election-related vandalism.

“Out of an abundance of caution, like many businesses, we are implementing additional security measures at certain locations in the event of civil unrest due to the current election,” a Saks Fifth Avenue spokesperson said in a statement.

“This could include boarding or additional security personnel. As always, the safety of our customers, associates and communities, as well as the protection of our physical assets, is of utmost importance,” the high-end retailer added.

The National Retail Federation told Forbes it is providing de-escalation training and extra security consultants.

On Monday morning in Downtown Los Angeles, construction workers are keeping busy boarding the windows of storefronts around the city.

“Notice what those cities have in common. They’re all Democrat cities,” Kayleigh McEnany, Trump campaign senior adviser told “Fox & Friends” Monday, adding it is “all the proof you need that the left should not be given federal power.”

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
