I don’t watch Trump speak but it sounds like he said nothing about the basis of the protests – police murders of African-Americans. There’s no reason for the protesters to stop until something is being done.
I don’t support vandalism and looting. I totally support the peaceful protests. You can make an argument that peaceful protests don’t work. Look where they got Colin Kaepernick – unemployed. Kaepernick was right then and Trump’s talk and actions have only validated his concerns.
He abdicates responsibility
He says nothing (as far as I read) about the real issue of police brutality against African-Americans that caused the protest
He blames the governors
His law and order pitch sounds like Nixon which is not a compliment
Trump should just shut up
