New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) said President Trump wants to make the protests over George Floyd’s death a “reality TV show of God and country.”
President Trump announced that he is taking “immediate presidential action” by mobilizing federal resources to stop the violent protests that have swept the nation for days, and threatened to deploy the military if states don’t send in the National Guard.
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in his first in-person campaign event in more than two months pledged if elected president he will address “institutional racism” in his first 100 days as he spoke with African American leaders to address the outrage and protests surrounding George Floyd’s death.
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.
President Trump lashed out to nation’s governors in a phone call Monday, calling many of them “weak” over how they are responding to protests and riots that have erupted across the country following the death of George Floyd, and urged the state leaders to “dominate.”
