You’re right, that isn’t very clear. If you are familiar with the protests, they are peaceful until militias and other white supremist groups join in, generally after dark. Those groups are the ones who run wild destroying private property. Trump conflates them with the peaceful protesters to frighten his supporters into thinking that they need him to stop the supposed anarchy in the cities. Anarchy which he encourages.
