At an event at the White House, President Trump is asked about demonstrations over George Floyd's death, and his conversation with Floyd's family.
RELATED: George Floyd remembered as 'gentle giant' by friends ruvid.net/video/video-12f2Fa0XPAQ.html
Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was arrested Friday, days after video circulated of him holding his knee to Floyd's neck for at least eight minutes before Floyd died. Floyd's family released a statement following the arrest, calling it a "welcome but overdue step on the road to justice."

The Press Wrote: "The illustrious president has continued during the last week to make a fool of himself and to mortify and shame the intelligent people of this great nation." His weak, wishy-washy, namby-pamby efforts, imbecile in matter, disgusting in manner, have made us the laughing stock of the whole world. The European powers will despise us because we have no better material out of which to make a President" -- (The Illinois Salem Advocate) "the deepest disgrace that the crushing indignation of a whole people can inflict." -- (The Brooklyn Eagle) "The president may live a hundred years without having so good a chance to die." -- The New York Tribune "As to the politics of Washington, the most striking thing is the absence of personal loyalty to the President. It does not exist. He has no admirers, no enthusiastic supporters, none to bet on his head. If a Republican convention were to be held to-morrow, he would not get the vote of a State." -- Richard Henry Dana This is what they wrote about President Lincoln 1860-1864.

Remember when people killed each other with hockey sticks and it turned out that the protests were partially fueled by a Russian troll farm?

Those people who smashed statues and smashed shops. Deprive of their American citizenship. And send them to your historical homeland! There they will live with their nationality.

Thought the exact same thing, was looking to see if any other comments agreed. His eyes stay down there long enough, plus the pauses in between. Weird.

What is happening right now is not right. Not all cops are bad. Not all whites are racists. A proper investigation should be done on all those cops who are suspects of illegal racist activities and they should be punished abiding "THE LAW'.

Crime rates aren’t down at ALL. Idk what he’s talking about but I do like trump and I am a supporter but crimes are rising. Before all this shit started they said the USA crimes for murder and assault have doubled since 2019 and 2020. The world is progressively getting violent. People are losing their shit for some reason lol.

Police officers know who to handle in a certain manner and who not to handle in a certain manner. This is not necessarily innate, even racist, but due to the spectrum they are allowed to misbehave within. Officers have been informed on who and who not to misbehave towards. If you see certain people being mistreated routinely, then you can more likely than not say that it is OK by the police officer's bosses for the police within that district to behave in that manner towards that particular group of people. Otherwise, the officer would be reprimanded, fired or jailed. Thus, for some citizens there is a no holds barred approach, whereas for others there is a no holds at all approach. These bosses have for sure delineated which people belong in which category before releasing the police officer, the attack dog, on the public and onto the streets. That dog now knows who to bite and who not to bite. So, if a specific group routinely gets the "business" from the police, then it has been settled by the mayor, the prosecutor, the attorney general, the governor, the US senator, even sometimes the White House, that that group of people can be mishandled. Proof: In past recent times, and still rarely, does a police officer goe to jail when the right people are singled out for physical abuse or death. The take home message for the non- White masses is to forget about the individual police. Instead, focus on punishing the cop's bosses. If the bosses get that work, then the police officer will AUTOMATICALLY fall in line! The police' officer's bosses will make sure that he or she get it right going foreward.

hmm the strikes here against Mr. President Trump have me so confused... the man spoke of how terrible the circumstance was and how much he disagreed with how Mr. Floyd was treated and spoke Truth about there being "Good individuals" protesting, and that there were "bad individuals" protesting.... he could not have been more accurate... the Truth is the only way to speak and he done that,,,, so discouraging to see the negative here...

Donald Trump promised to send in the Military to prevent African-Americans from exercising their 1st Amendment Rights. Not that he would know anything about the Constitution. Donald J Trump was the 3rd President in history to be Impeached for ABUSE OF POWER and Obstruction of Congress. That wasn't long ago..

That's bullshit him making the statement that there are all these good woman and men police officers in our system I call absolute Freaking Bullshit there are so many dirty ass cops out here in this world that I say there are dirty bad people also but when u are a police officer and u take a oath and u receive that badge to protect and serve for the people then u need to make damn sure that's what u r going to be doing. And not only that but a lot of these police officers take advantage and use and abuse the fact that they are police officers so because they are with the law that they can get away with all this evil vindictive shit that they are doing. Just because they are in uniform does not make them untouchable and above the law they all should be treated like anyone else when they do wrong!
