Donald Trump hasn’t left the White House….
On Friday he was hiding in a basement bunker….
Governor’s, Mayors and Police Chiefs have been on front lines with the protests and violence…
But Donald Trump?
He’s the President that NEVER takes responsibility to lead…
So what does come out with?
A shout from the rear….
Which sounds like a man very afraid….
President Trump pressed the nation’s governors to crack down on protesters during a phone call Monday after a night of violent demonstrations in cities across the U.S., according to multiple sources familiar with the call.
One source familiar with the call said that Trump told governors to “dominate” and “take back your streets.” Trump was sharply critical of local leaders on the call, castigating them as being “weak” in response to the demonstrations, according to another source.
The president held the call with state leaders as protests persisted nationwide in response to the death of George Floyd, a black man who died after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for roughly eight minutes. The officer who pinned Floyd to the ground with his knee was charged with murder last week.
Trump has not spoken publicly about the unrest since Saturday afternoon, when he called Floyd’s death a “grave tragedy” and said his memory was being “dishonored by rioters, looters, and anarchists.”
He faced pressure from some corners of the White House to deliver a formal address acknowledging the unrest sparked by Floyd’s death. But His messaging in the last 48 hours has been focused more on the conduct of demonstrators, as protests have erupted across the country and caused local officials to implement curfews.
The president has called for “law and order” and urged governors to activate the National Guard and crackdown more strongly on protesters. Currently, about half of the 50 states and Washington, D.C., have activated the National Guard to handle the protests…..
