President Trump retweeted it without explanation on Monday morning.

When the protesters were marching against Krewson, an armed couple came from a ritzy home with a handgun and what appears to be an AR-15.

They were walking to St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson's office after she revealed on social media the names and addresses of people who have called to defund the police.

It is unclear whether the mansion's owners were the couple captured in the video of the protests, and attempts by The Post to contact them late Sunday night were unsuccessful.

She continued, "Tonight, I would like to apologize for identifying individuals who presented letters and comment cards to me at City Hall as I was answering a routine question during one of my updates earlier today".

Some called for the husband and wife to be charged for holding guns while on their property. Someone created a "Ken and Karen" meme out of the couple using a screenshot from the video.

The home belonged to a pair of lawyers in 2018, according to a profile published at the time by St. Louis Magazine. The couple allegedly said they witnessed people breaking an iron gate that had "no trespassing", and "private street" signs.

A demonstration in St. Louis led to a heart-pounding scene outside the home of one of the mayor's neighbors. On Friday afternoon, Krewson read aloud on a live web stream the names and addresses of several activists advocating for the police department's funding to be cut.

The protesters were in the Central West End, on Lake Ave.in St. Louis protesting Mayor Lyda Krewson, who doxxed BLM protesters during a Facebook Live event.

An online petition started over the weekend calling for her to resign has generated more than 40,000 signatures.

The video was removed from Facebook and Krewson apologised on Friday, stating she did not "intend to cause distress".

"As a leader, you don't do stuff like that.it's only right that we visit her at her home", said Democrat state Representative Rasheen Aldridge, speaking into a megaphone at the protest Sunday.
