WASHINGTON (INTELLIHUB) — The White House activated a defensive posture on Sunday night at around 1 p.m. as violence and vandalism from angry protesters began to worsen.

Broadcast signals were jammed just after the last mainstream live feed concluded and remained that way until 5 a.m. in the morning when a local Fox affiliate went on air.

It was an eerie scene as red lights could be seen shining on the White House lawn while the rest of the building remained unlit altogether.

A good portion of the city was burned Sunday night as protesters clashed with police and military.

President Donald Trump was taken into the White House bunker as a defensive measure for about an hour as Secret Service sized up the situation.

Downtown D.C. looked and sounded like a warzone throughout the night.
