Melania Trump Calls For Protestors to ‘Protest in Peace’

Posted on

First lady Melania Trump condemned the riots that have escalated over the last few days across the nation, urging protestors to “protest in peace” in response to George Floyd’s death in police custody last week.

“Saddened to see our country & communities being damaged & vandalized,” Melania tweeted. “I ask everyone to protest in peace & focus on taking care of one another & healing our great nation.”

On Friday, Melania tweeted her condolences to George Floyd’s family and called for “peaceful protests,” saying “there is no reason for violence.”

“Our country allows for peaceful protests, but there is no reason for violence. I’ve seen our citizens unify & take care of one another through COVID19 & we can’t stop now,” Melania tweeted. “My deepest condolences to the family of George Floyd. As a nation, let’s focus on peace, prayers & healing.”

The tweet on Friday was the first public remark Melania made regarding the violent protesting that has occurred surrounding the police killing of Floyd, an unarmed African American man who died this week.

Ivanka Trump, a senior adviser to President Trump tweeted shortly after the First Lady comments about the events surrounding Floyd’s death.

“People in Minneapolis are hurting for a reason. Justice is how we heal.” Ivanka tweeted. “My heart goes out to George Floyd’s family and all Americans who are hurting.” The tone of her tweet also differed from the one posted hours earlier by the President.”

Donald Trump Jr, also weighed in to express empathy for the citizens of Minneapolis and anger at Floyd’s killing, saying that the violent riots “unfolding” shouldn’t be occurring as an excuse for anger.

“What happened to George Floyd was disgusting. He should be alive today & I’m praying for his family,” Trump Jr. tweeted. “People are right to be angry, but there’s never an excuse for the type of violent riots unfolding now. No American should ever have to watch their own community burn to the ground.”

    Yeah, Melania, good luck with that. You mean well, and your message is undoubtedly one of compassion and good will, but the people you are addressing are barbaric Democrats. You aren’t speaking to people who think rationally to begin with. You could ask the people who turn violent WHY their rage is so great when it’s a black guy being treated too rough, but ignore the times when a black guy rapes, murders or robs someone. Where are their protests when it’s a WHITE person who gets the rough treatment?? Where is their indignant rage when that happens? There is NO rage from blacks when a white person is victimized by one of their own. They say “Black Lives Matter”…. and white lives don’t??

    Melania, your intentions are good, but it won’t help calm the violent tendencies of these barbarians. Just send in the troops to handle it.

Being a reporter seems a ticket out to the world.
