President Donald Trump addressed the nation of the United States after another night of riots and protests in cities over the death of George Floyd. Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser, a Democrat, responded to the Republican president on Twitter, saying there “are no vicious dogs & ominous weapons. There is just a scared man.”
“While he (Trump) hides behind his fence afraid/alone, I stand w/people peacefully exercising their First Amendment Right after the murder of #GeorgeFloyd and hundreds of years of institutionalized racism,” said Bowser, who is black.
Floyd’s death on Monday in Minneapolis has sparked demonstrations, some of them violent, in many cities across the U.S., including one in Washington on Friday.
The White House was temporarily locked down as hundreds of people gathered on Friday afternoon across the street in Lafayette Square Park.
The President made a remark to warn anyone that is planning to attack the White House that they would be “greeted with the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons, I have ever seen.”
However, he also let everyone know that the slogan “Make America Great Again” was for all the people of the United States and not just one segment. He also stated that “Maga loves the black people”. Check out the President Trump with his speech below.
