BobTrillan Anything to hide the truth NBC propaganda Cover actual news where you and your progressive democrats are responsible for this anarchy live with it Good. You're on the phone with him to listen. He just wanted to be able to say he called, I'm glad the man is speaking out about the call. Jealousy over Biden calling, but trump is not human, has no soul.

Can we use for the prosecution ? “He was in tremendous pain, obviously, and he couldn’t breathe,' Trump said of the video Friday, 'it was very obvious to anybody that watched it.” Because he’s asking for things The President has no say so in a court of law. If he did say something the accused can call for mistrial or appeal and get a retrial. Either way, it would only hurt the case

Intent is formed in the blink of an eye. This was surely murder 1. I just watched Wolf Blitzer and Loretta Lynch lie to the American public about people getting shot after the Looting begins. They pretended they did not understand what the president really meant. They pushed fake down a gullible public's throat once again

He probably was talking to a recording. Correct me if I'm wrong, but when the POTUS calls you to express condolences for the tragic loss of your family member, he's not open to a lengthy discussion of the details of the legal process that may or may not be involved - he's simply calling to express his condolences.

There is no way in hell I would have taken a phone call from this 'fill in the blank'! Well, maybe just to say 'Fill in the blank'! Because you are not human to Humpty Trumpty JJohnsonLaw Did Trump contact the brother of George Floyd after seeing Biden’s tear filled eyes while describing his own conversation with the Floyd’s brother?

Since the Wuhan flu lockdowns won't last until November, do you think you can tie this to Trump? Hasn't worked in the past. The race card is usually your last play, you objective journalists... NBC won’t call riots, riots. First degree is never going to stick. Good job finding a way to make this worse, enemy of the people.

A first degree murder charge is going to be extremely difficult to prove. The prosecutors want to win the case so they’re going to charge him with something that sticks. A first degree murder charge would never fly. No premeditation. What do you expect form a White Nationalist Racist He only invited the family for POLITICAL GAIN NOTHING ELSE!.

Imagine that: an uneducated man taking nonsense out of his ass. Who would have guessed? He can call for whatever fantasy he wishes. Doesn't mean it will change anything. That's defiantly trump, that's how he ignored a reporter and walked away He speaks but doesn’t listen Hello this is President Trump I’m just calling to say I too know how you’re feeling. I’m gonna help bigly okay. We’re gonna do great things for the blacks. I love the blacks ya know. Okay bye.

Can’t wait for tRump to attack the family after this statement was issued. Classic tRump. AntifaTerrorists He looks like somebody shoved Somethin up his rear!🤣 donlemon said you don't need to hear from him anyway Death penalty? 🙄 Chill tf down When the king speaks you just listen Trump doesn't give a damn. As long as white interest are kept alive.

Trump was too busy trying to spot the camera to listen. Mr. Trump -U are smart (no one can beat you )so you with a forceful voice must condemn Police attrocities. You say stop this unrest & Jystice will be served no matter what. We are civilized people and should no indulge in breaking & looting. Please calm down & I am for you all.

Trump does not carry compassion, he is dangerous Look at that tiny hand...LOL That is because Trump didn't care what they were going through. What was the soldier, was it David Johnson? Remember that conversation in the car? Remember the horrible things Trump said about Rep Wilson? See a pattern? Trump doesn't want to give nobody a chance to speak he thinks it's good but new people are getting hurt or arrested he's loving it shame on Trump it's called free speech least we get the truth from the news people not Trump trump doesn't know how to tell the truth

The AG should Announce an Investigation into all hate Group's including BLM find out if they are Responsible for the Rioting we are seeing.If so these groups must be shut down,the Leader's facing Domestic Terrorism Charges. runawaytrump 😢😢😢 Donald Trump Du bist ein Vollidiot vom aller feinsten Because he spoke to your parents.

George's brother is an idiot. I know he's mad, but he should learn to read law statutes first. What they officer did doesn't qualify as 1st degree murder Never good going be good enough for some George Floyd’s brother is an idiot. There will never be a 1st degree murder conviction. Take a lessor charge that a jury will agree on and get him in jail. And stop inciting riots and destruction

Liar , Trump did not even give Mr.Floyd brother a chance to speak You ppl are hilarious. You are such liars. Nobody will ever trust you again. Because he is a legitimate narcissist, he has no capacity for empathy. That is not a conversation. That is His Majesty trying to act like he really cares. And he certainly would not leave any time for someone to ask a question.

State and Police Dept need to be prosecuted for corporate manslaughter Face it... realDonaldTrump sucks as a human being! He spoke just didn’t listen. 1st requires premeditation. It's a legal issue not emotional. And MN doesn't have a death penalty. Since 1911. He didn't even have to call and someone should explain what 1st degree murder is!!

At first I was wondering the same thing, but after learning what 3rd degree murder charges for that state are, it does fit the crime. Do you want first degree murder charges so that when he is inevitably acquitted of first degree you have more reason to riot? 3rd degree will land him in jail. 1st won’t

This is not going to happen Mr. George. Your big mouth in all of this does not help things. You should be calling for peace, no provoking MORE violence. That's because Trump only called because Biden did... Donald Trump is the Greatest President in the history of the universe. Holy Jesus this creature is A Plague all by itself.

Duh We lost Minnesota today we will not lose N.Y. or L.A. Philly we are winning Well when you say something to dumb... Hmmm. I smell bullshit. Must be an election coming up. YourDOJ under Barr is a joke and you are a bigger joke Trump POTUS Mr. President, new video has come up that shows knee restraint could not have killed Floyd. We need the ME’s report. Stop knee jerking emotionally or I’ll have to pray for no 2nd term. I am one to do it. Tired of media reporting to cause riots rather than present facts.

TODAYshow I wonder who told him to say that? He sure as hell didn’t come up with it. That poor family had been through so much already. TODAYshow And we are all entitled to a “leader” who does not incite reprehensible behaviors such as these People just stayed at home for too long. They want to relief by destroying stuffs.

TODAYshow Wait. I thought he was racist. All these fools on Twitter told me Trump was racist. This is a better response. Pretty sure only reason trump is pushing for this to go fast is because he thinks it will get him black voters. Why is it Nancy Pelosi‘s neighborhood being attacked🤔 We are living in realDonaldTrump and GOP’s America, riots in the street, armed right wing nuts storming state houses, pandemic killing one thousand Americans, and an economy that crashed in less than a month. 😱😱😱

Make a play to support justice for George Floyd, ask for congress to investigate Floyd’s death, add sanctions on China, leave WHO. voter fraud, Twitter - and not one damn word about COVID19. Guess the pandemic is over for trump - time to move on. 🖕 Trump 🖕 Notice how he uses people’s first names to imply that he knew him, was close to him? One phone call to a devastated family and Trump refers to “George”. No decency, no respect for anything or anybody.

Now all of a sudden he cares about one black guy & justice.. is this an election year? 🤔 The quick and clean solution is to hang the guilty red neck racist cop or throw him in jail so someone in there take his low dirty life away‼️This would be marvelous LESSON for all the COPS on the planet ❌❌❌ Today is the day I am getting all my anger out! He sucks so bad!!!!!!

EMPTY statements. You could care less as long as it doesn’t interfere with your agenda! Sure! TRUMP: And I need the BLACK vote ASAP because I didn’t mean what I said when I encouraged Police to rough up suspects🤬 nytimes washingtonpost jaketapper JoeNBC TeamPelosi SenSchumer NicolleDWallace maddow Does anyone think for one minute that Donald Trump really cares about George Floyd. Just pandering to the African American Vote .

He is pretending to give a crap about black people. As he stokes racism & incites violence. Tell the truth you don't like Black People I'm sure the murderers are 'very fine people.' If you support 45 you support racism! Bullshiiiit! He didn’t do shit, it’s all words to make people believe he “cares”. He takes no action not interested plain and simple, it’s just another marketing stunt

TODAYshow Whatever he says, it doesn't matter.

Turkish President Erdogan condemns 'inhumane' killing of George FloydTurkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan decries “racist and fascist” mentality that led to the killing of an unarmed black man due to “torture” while in police custody in US What about the medical supplies & Arms which is been sent to Israel to persecute Palestinians. Now Turkey has resumed cargo Services to Israel. Hypocrite ... Correct? Thank you Mr President for speaking against this mentality I agree with President Erdogan. It is the racist mentality of certain people. This type of person who is racist is unable to change even if you try to help them...

Trump stokes tensions over George Floyd protestsIf President Donald Trump's initial response to the police killing of an unarmed black man in Minnesota surprised some as uncharacteristically measured, his threat of violent police retaliation and military intervention as protests raged thrust him more squarely into a familiar position as racial instigator and defender of law enforcement. CNN stokes tension with endless Fake News propaganda. Stop calling thugs protestors. They are criminals. When looting starts shooting starts is not stoking tension- it means that business owners are starting to shoot looters and national guard must intervene to stop more deaths. CNN is stoking tensions & fueling this emotional conflict. Justice for Mr. Floyd must be served...

Trump Calls George Floyd Protestors ‘THUGS’ And Threatens Violent Intervention'When the looting starts, the shooting starts,' the president wrote, as Minneapolis erupted for a third straight day. Amerikkka... Trumpster needs stopped and out of office b4 a civil war gets started!!! Trump bogus executive order!! 😂😂😂😂
