    > What type of “leadership” has Donald Trump shown in response to the police killing of George Floyd?

    > Donald Trump called the protesters “thugs,” and appeared to threaten them with death.

    > On Friday night, Trump wrote on Twitter: “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!”

    Trump has done nothing but incite more violence against those that are speaking out on injustice. This is the America Trump wants us to live in. He’s the divider-in-chief.

    This goes way beyond Donald Trump. Police brutality has been America’s reality for decades.

    No, this is just America.

    Trump isn’t the *problem*. Trump is a *symptom*.

  6. FilliamHMuffmanJr says

    We were told back in 2016 that if we voted for Hillary Clinton and her socialist policies there would be mass unemployment, people standing on lines to get basic necessities, and enormous civil unrest.

    And then country voted for Hillary Clinton and look what’s happening. I guess they were right.

  7. Moosetappropriate says

    Donnie, you’re going to be in every history book world wide. That’s what you want isn’t it? You’ll be more famous than Benedict Arnold and John Wilkes Booth combined.

    Donald J Trump – The traitor who murdered America. And his squad of supporting goons, the Republican Party.

  8. middleagethreat says

    People who know how to photoshop should start making Trump 2020 election ads with burning police stations as the backgroud.

  9. ziggyscoob says

    Trumpocalypse 2020!

  10. _Woodrow_ says

    Who the fuck is looking around and thinking “oh yeah, I want 4 more years of this!”?

  11. mightymightyallmight says

    Give it time. This is far from over. We may actually see the WH burn before this is all over.

    This is what you get when you forcefully inject racism, bigotry, and hatred into the community as the leader of the “free world”, all while blatantly committing vile and corrupt deeds and taunting people with “what are you gonna do about it?” Tweets.

  13. SeegsonSynthetics says

    The video of that was painful to watch. What a horrible way to die and completely unnecessary actions taken by the police.

  14. NicolBolasElderDragn says

    This looks exactly how I pictured a Trump presidency.

  15. theFuzz1 says

    This article states that J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao were “suspended.” Does anyone know if that’s true? I thought they were all fired.

  16. TrumpDollars says

    With the rise in race related attacks and white supremacists since trump took office, who’s to say whether george would still be alive had anyone else been president

  17. ESB1812 says

    Not Donald Trumps America! Its our America! I did not fight for this country, damn near getting killed in the process to have it belong to one man! This orange ass hasn’t caused this problem, this has been coming for awhile. Remember the tea party and occupy wall street? They both got co-opt’d no change. Inequality, and people feel as though the system doesn’t represent “we” anymore but “them”. Black people are tired of being killed by the police…often they are the poorest among us, the weakest communities. Makes me think of the saying “ what you do to the least of my brothers you do unto me” Mr. Floyds murder was the catalyst, people want change! The lack of leadership on all levels of government, especially from the top is appalling. This whole covid virus, no leadership there…the economy…all the unemployment, we see company’s get bail outs, and what we get s one time check? Unemployment doesn’t last for ever. One nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all! All

    And like an ostrich sticking its head in the sand, he went shuffling off in his 3inch platform clown shoes to the bunker.

  19. KosherizedFirearms says

    Is America great yet?

  20. Newtype316 says

    “The Governor of Michigan should give a little, and put out the fire. These are very good people, but they are angry. They want their lives back again, safely! See them, talk to them, make a deal.” Commander Witless, funny enough, has the right idea here. Except HE doesn’t give.

  21. jofstra says

    Crackhead President

  22. dentalen says

    Yep there are just some people that wants to see the country and the world BURN just to satisfy themselves and trump is one of them! And its scary AF!

  23. DrippsGa says

    At what point do we just accept that Trump’s real name is Biff and back to the future 2 was a documentary.

  24. ElectronicBoots says

    Donald Glover put this song out nearly 2 years ago.

  25. Hardcore_EHS says

    This is what we wanted. By having an election system that rewards losers, by electing and re-electing sycophants who refuse to remove the person causing all of this. This is exactly what we asked for.

  26. binary_dysmorphia says

    American Carnage

  27. JulesHaggard says

    Transition to ~~Greatness~~ Carnage.

  28. outerworldLV says

    Well when all we’ve been witnessing from our government of late is complete and utter incompetence, lawlessness, accompanied by zero accountability, WTF did anybody expect ? Of course the people are going to rise up. They couldn’t afford to before the covid precautionary measures were implemented, but now ? What do we have to lose that this president hasn’t already given away ? Or sold.

  29. dikembemutombo21 says

    The republicans had complete control of all 3 branches of government for YEARS under the trump “presidency”.

    This is America how they want it to function

  30. evantom34 says

    This is a friendly reminder that protesting will not be enough. It is imperative that everyone VOTES in November if we want to enact change for the future!

  31. radical__centrism says

    The number of unarmed black people who died in a police use of force actually plummeted under Trump. Not that he had anything to do with it, but in 2019 it was a total of 9, according to WaPo. So the problem has gotten better.

  32. lotsamatza says

    There were plenty of innocent black lives murdered during the Obama administration too. This isn’t new and this isn’t all trumps fault. He might be a fuckall and fuel the fire, but let’s not pretend this race war accompanied by riots is brand spanking new. Downvotes accepted here.

  33. MowMdown says

    Remind me which party decided only the police should have access to guns and that regular citizens couldn’t be trusted?

    Nobody wants to answer my question?

  34. thedude1948 says

    This isn’t just on Trump. This is a both party issue. Trump is making it worse, but last time I checked the mayor of Minneapolis and the governor of Minnesota are both “democrats”.

    If anything, this is the America we have due to Republicans and moderate Democrats running the country, they are basically the same. We need real progressives in office.

  35. Yukon-C14 says

    Ultimately trump does not care about either of those things. He just cares about himself and winning re-election. He’d let the whole country burn if it meant he’d win the election.

  36. seEagle says

    Oh but the ratings

  37. ducktape8856 says

    Winning!

  38. RavenPro555 says

    Under President Trump’s leadership comes a extremely divided nation that’s always under fire every single day, month and year.

    Could it get any worse?

    Well, Trump must’ve established a Neo-Nazi era full of never-ending fear and terror — Just like Hitler’s Reich…

    …But worse by all means.

  39. ShrimpieAC says

    I’m surprised people aren’t firebombing the Capital by now.

    Oh wait…

  40. AmericanWasted says

    Making America great again

  41. skruppet says

    The problem is, and I say that as European, that there is a very concerning chance for him to be re-elected – and may it be tiny. Tbh I think he has quite a chance.

    I just hope for America that the people decide for hope, equality and justice – that you write your own future and get him out of power!

  42. livedtoseethis says

    I feel that racism in the police force should be dealt with better during training and recruitment of police officers.

  43. televashekra says

    Is it time for “told ya so”?

  44. rubbish1155 says

    Seems to be the same America it’s always been . Stop pretending this is something new.

  45. Obviouslarry says

    This for that.

  46. Ze3y0o says

    They’re gonna let this country burn before they arrest 4 cops
