Protesters in Baltimore topple Columbus statue, dump it in the harbor

Video compiled from various Twitter clips 35 sec

On July 4, anti-racist protesters yanked down the statue of slave trader and father of colonialism Christopher Columbus in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. They then tossed part of the statue in the harbor, throwing Columbus back into the sea to start his deportation back to Europe.

Many Columbus statues came down on July 4, this was just one of them. A week earlier, Trump claimed that he had stopped the wave of statue teardowns with his blustering threats of ten years in prison. Now he has been forced to eat those words.
