Now it’s time for him to speak to the American public.

Guess he had another pre written script to read. Maybe he said to his family “you have my sympathy”. “I know people will be protesting, but if they loot they will be shot down”. “I’ve also ordered vicious dogs to be present, so if they get out of line those dogs will attack them”

As if they haven't suffered enough

I can imagine what janky mess he uttered to them!

Say what ? Prison the white killer is best answer

People are rioting and looting in cities mismanaged by corrupt democrat mayors who have used the police to surpress and kill minorities. Minneapolis, Louisville, Atlanta, NYC, DC, etc are all run my democrat mayors and the people are now revolting against the democrat party.

Nothing like a call from Trump to add salt to a wound.

Why would you intrude on their privacy at a time like this? Insensitive as usual

Black lives matter ✊🏾

Too little too late.

I don't think Floyd died from suffocation...he died of nature causes..autopsy show hypertension and heart disease, but no signs of strangulation!

Did he tell them to leave the country?

That's my President!!! Landslide in 2020!!!!

PLEASE REPOST! This fool claims he deserved it! Now I'm white & tired of being embarrassed by uneducated bigots! We outnumber them at least 5-1 & I say it's time to put away Martin Luther King & bring out Malcolm X! Show them what real hate looks like. NO APOLOGIES ACCEPTED!

Nope not until I hear it from the family of George Floyd.

Hey Donnie realDonaldTrump it looks like your in 3rd place behind JoeBiden and BarackObama in getting in the game. Yeah....you’re a leader alright. DumpTrump cnnbrk

Did Biden decide if George was black or not yet?

Who ever shot that clear Video tape is the one who gave justice to George Floyd. If there was no Video tape there would never have been a justice or even a case!

Dereck Chauvin deserves the death penalty JusticeForGeorgeFlyod

As a president should. But what about the crimes of this one?⬇️

He just gonna give them money huh

All of a sudden

Let’s see how you can negatively spin this one.

Im wondering why Floyds parents except his phone call


Where is the outrage from my BLACK BROTHERS IN BLUE? Oh! sorry it wasn't one of yours that couldn't breathe; it wasn't one of yours that was lynched on that pavement; it was one of ours. carry on gentlemen.

Poor people haven’t they been through enough already!!

Now it’s dark time. But there is God’s watchman who says even darker time is coming. His message is now being preached in real time! FridayWordExpedition.

Watch this news report

No doubt wearing his white hood when he did.

He's playing follow the leader with Biden.

I don’t think that’s true.

Because Biden had already called.

Did you promise them to keep continuing to INCITE violence so black communities can continue to be harassed. Did you tell them how big of a racist you are and that you hate Black America. !!!

Just another worthless lie. How can people support this loser?

A man died because people in charge couldn't or wouldn't recognize the warning signs. No one is doing anybody any favors by covering up for indiscretions and improper behavior.

George Floyd Minnesota protests updates: No charges announced as officials ask for 'patience'The Department of Justice has made the investigation into Floyd's death a 'top priority,' Erica MacDonald, attorney for state of Minnesota, said at a press conference. Let’s here the whole truth. So if you don’t get you way it’s ok to trash a city... To the FBI: I say BS. The video of the murder is more than needed to warrant arrests. Your just wasting time to fraudulently placate & blow smoke up the Minneapolis community. Trump & Barr ordered you to bury it! Get these thugs of the streets even as civilian This was the second rather obvious misstep by the authorities in the wake of the killing. They know it and so do we. However violence protest is less effective than persistent, unrelenting civil disobedience. Don’t squander this opportunity. minneapolisriots GeorgeFloyd
