President Donald Trump has ordered federal agencies to find ways to "defund" cities that have permitted "anarchy" amid the ongoing riots in the U.S., according to an exclusive report from the New York Post.

What are the details?

"My Administration will not allow Federal tax dollars to fund cities that allow themselves to deteriorate into lawless zones," the president wrote in a memo to agencies, according to The Post. "To ensure that Federal funds are neither unduly wasted nor spent in a manner that directly violates our Government's promise to protect life, liberty, and property, it is imperative that the Federal Government review the use of Federal funds by jurisdictions that permit anarchy, violence, and destruction in America's cities."
