President Trump is reportedly calling on the nation's governors to get tougher on violent protesters. 

During a conference call at the White House, Trump is reported to have said -- "You have to dominate; if you don't dominate..they're going to run over you..you're going to look like a bunch of jerks." Audio of the secure call is being leaked. 

Trump also reportedly called many governors "weak" and vowed to "pull in thousands" of protesters in Washington, DC. 

The Secret Service reportedly moved Trump to a secure bunker for a brief period Friday night as protests around the White House grew in intensity. 

Violent protests were sparked by the death of a black man in police custody in Minneapolis.
