DALLAS (AP) – Republican Gov. Greg Abbott says Texas won’t request military support after President Donald Trump threatened to deploy troops across the country to confront violence set off by the death of George Floyd. Abbott also said Tuesday he wasn’t asked to send Texas National Guard members to the District of Columbia after days of violent demonstrations there led to fires and the use of tear gas and flash bangs, including on peaceful protesters.
