On Friday afternoon, Trump attempted to clarify his comments in another Twitter thread.

"Looting leads to shooting, and that's why a man was shot and killed in Minneapolis on Wednesday night - or look at what just happened in Louisville with 7 people shot," Trump tweeted, over the shooting death of Breoanna Taylor, a black woman in Kentucky killed in her own home as part of no-knock police raid. . "It's very simple, nobody should have any problem with this other than the haters, and those looking to cause trouble on social media.

On Friday afternoon, prosecutors announced one of the officers involved who was caught on video pinning his knee on Floyd's neck, Derek Chauvin, had been taken into custody

It is a fact! Did you forget Baltimore, Dallas and Ferguson ? Twitter He is only responsible for what he write not your interpretation or understanding.

what a lousy leader we have in office prayer warriors. time to get back into the prayer closet. he needs us.

Oh he didn’t steal a quote? Sure potus whatever. This proves your use of words perfectly

Trump knows the power of words. he is just trying to justify something that he did. he is of the addage that it is “It is better to beg forgiveness, than ask permission.” He knew his P. R. person would not ok such a remark. no problem. I'll just apologize later. it's already out

It's true did you forget Ferguson, Dallas , Baltimore?

Words matter .

Nobody wants that...the point is Trump is inept. As I watched I thought OMG This man has no clue how to unite and is doing a good Job at dividing.

Poor 🍊 👨🏻

I'm confused 'his'?

the next line was: 'and we don't want that' but it was deleted by the media

That will depend on your own psych.
