The protesters were marching to Mayor Lyda Krewson's house to demand her resignation

President Donald Trump on Monday retweeted a widely scrutinised video of a St. Louis couple aiming guns at a ?a group of protesters who were marching to the home of the city’s mayor to demand her resignation.

Videos from?social media show the husband and wife emerging armed from their front door on a private street in the wealthy neighborhood of Central West End. They have been identified locally as Mark and Patricia McCloskey, both of whom are personal injury lawyers. They run McCloskey Law Center from their home.

They proceed to shout at the protesters to “move on” while waving a handgun and an AR-15. One man wearing a ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot’ t-shirt can be heard moving the crowd on, and urging everyone to ignore the gun-wielding residents.

Mr Trump retweeted the ABC News video without comment, appearing to endorse the couple’s stance. The White House didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

The protesters, approximately 500 people, were reportedly going to Mayor Lyda Krewson’s house to call for her resignation. They were heard chanting: “Resign Lyda, take the cops with you.”

The demand stems from a Facebook live briefing broadcast last Friday in which the mayor read out the names and addresses of several residents who wrote to her to ask for the city’s police department to be defunded.

Despite the names and letters being a matter of public record, Ms Krewson was heavily criticised for her actions and was forced to remove the video from Facebook. 43,000 people have signed an online petition calling for her resignation.?

Ms?Krewson apologised for the incident, saying she did not “intend to cause distress.”

Speaking at the protest, State Representative Rasheen Aldridge said "As a leader, you don't do stuff like that ... it's only right that we visit her at her home."

Mr McCloskey is known to be currently representing a victim of police brutality. In that case, a man identified as I.F. was kicked and hit by officer David Maas. Mr Maas has been charged with one count of deprivation of rights.
