While it's unclear what Trump intended by sharing the post, his past statements against demonstrators who are part of the Movement for Black Lives have prompted news agencies to suggest the president was likely retweeting the video in support of the display of weapons against protesters.

The video of the couple outside of their homes is also causing the word "AR-15" to trend on Twitter.

The protesters were on their way to the St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson's house to demand that she resign after giving out the names and addresses of people advocating for defunding the police.

People in the march urged fellow marchers to ignore the couple and keep walking.

She continued, "Tonight, I would like to apologize for identifying individuals who presented letters and comment cards to me at City Hall as I was answering a routine question during one of my updates earlier today".

Yankees-Red Sox Series Heats up AL East Race
The New York Yankees won the series, winning 8-1, losing 11-0, and winning 11-1 to make up some ground on their rivals. Despite sitting on top for much of the season, the Boston Red Sox are expected to lose steam as the season progresses.

The protesters are shown standing on the sidewalk and the street. That's when the married couple comes out of their home holding guns.

The couple, dubbed Karen and Ken by the internet, came out of their mansion wielding firearms. Its exterior is made from limestone and marble, and its interior has been decorated to look like various Renaissance palaces from Europe, according to the profile.

The protestors appear to have entered a gated and private street which led to the couple to emerge from their house and seemingly point their guns at protestors outside their home.

The protesters were in the Central West End, on Lake Ave.in St. Louis protesting Mayor Lyda Krewson, who doxxed BLM protesters during a Facebook Live event. In response, she read through proposals they'd submitted for how the city should reallocate its budget to defund police and divulged the full name and address of numerous people behind the suggestions. Following a number of tense confrontations over the weekend, more than 40,000 people signed an online petition calling on Krewson to resign.

"As a leader, you don't do stuff like that", state Rep. Rasheen Aldridge (D) told the crowd through a megaphone, according to the Post-Dispatch.
