Despite McEnany's pushback, Trump makes it abundantly clear what he means by 'dominate'

Yet again, the White House says, President Trump is being taken out of context. After audio leaked of his phone call with governors Monday, the media played up Trump repeatedly urging the police and military to “dominate” in response to the unrest nationwide.

But White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said the president’s words were being twisted to be more provocative and violent than they actually were. “I’ve seen some networks that have talked about dominating protesters, and I’ve been around the president all day, and any time he’s used the word ‘dominate,’ it was in regard to dominating the streets and ensuring that we have peace in our streets,” she said.

Except that doesn’t totally fit with what Trump said. Nor does it accord with what would happen in Lafayette Square outside the White House just a few hours later.

The president did talk broadly on the call about dominating the streets and legal prosecutions, and he didn’t explicitly advocate cracking skulls or anything like that. But throughout the call were allusions to heavy-handed policing tactics, the word “fight” and war metaphors.
