President Trump pushed governors to use more aggressive tactics against protesters, according to leaked audio of Monday video teleconference call.

Several reports quoted the president telling the governors that they are "weak" and "not doing enough" to quell demonstrations. Trump also said that the governors "were a laughingstock all over the world."

"You're making a mistake because you're making yourselves look like fools," the president told the governors while urging them "dominate" the protesters.
