'Total lack of leadership from Donald Trump', the user tweeted.

Even as #BlackLivesMatter protests tore through Washington DC and clashed with police for a third day, a photo of the White House with its lights out, has been going viral on Twitter.

Police fired pepper spray at demonstrators near the White House and D.C. National Guard was called in as pockets of violence and vandalism erupted during a second straight night of protests over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and President Donald Trump’s response to it.

Hundreds of people converged on the White House and marched along the National Mall, chanting “Black Lives Matter,” “I can’t breathe” and “No justice, no peace."
