U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper on Protesters: ‘We Need to Dominate the Battlespace’

The Washington Post reports that U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper told governors during a White House call how to fight American protesters:

We need to dominate the battlespace. I think the sooner that you mass and dominate the battlespace, the quicker this dissipates and we can get back to the right normal.

Esper said 70,000 National Guard troops had been activated in 29 states, but that most of the states had fewer than 200 troops deployed against American civilians.
