Most senate Republicans stay silent on Trump's protest rhetoric
'The overwhelming issue for us is after you stop the rioting — which we will — what are you going to do about the problem that led to protest?' Trump ally Graham says
“The last thing I think about when a cop’s behind me is that I'm [under] threat. I wonder, ‘Did I go too fast?’ And that's the way it is,” he said.“If you're a young African-American man in parts of this country, that's not the first thing you think about. And we just need to get to the bottom of how that happened and what can we do to fix it,” Mr Graham said.
The chairman said he would pencil in a hearing for 16 June — the earliest viable date on the committee’s schedule — on the death ofGeorge Floydand policing in America.It has been a balancing act for Senate Republicans to condemn the vandalism and looting that has marked many protests while acknowledging the pain of black communities in America after Mr Floyd died as a
Minneapolispolice officer knelt on his neck and back for several minutes, despite pleas from Mr Floyd that he couldn’t breathe.While Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell spent much of his opening floor remarks on Tuesday decrying the “looting and violent rioting” that has damaged people and local businesses in cities across the country over the last several days, the Kentucky Republican also said Americans were “united in horror and opposition to the violent killing of Mr Floyd.”
“The legitimate and important voices of peaceful protesters will never be heard over the wailing of fire alarms, the smashing of plate-glass windows, and the sirens of ambulances coming for police officers who have been assaulted or shot in the head,” Mr McConnell said in a plea to end the chaos on American streets.
