Trump Threatens To Suppress George Floyd Protests With Military Calling Protestors ‘Thugs’


But in an interview Wednesday on Fox News Radio, Trump said evangelical leaders such as Franklin Graham and Robert Jeffress - who are prominent Trump supporters - approved of the symbolism of the event. "I heard Franklin Graham this morning thought it was great".

Remember that one of the main reasons Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election to Donald Trump was the fact that black voters have dropped as a percentage of the general electorate since 2012 is he won them less overwhelmingly than the then President Barack Obama had been.

Trump's threat to deploy US military troops to states relies on terms outlined in the Insurrection Act, a federal law originally passed more than 200 years ago, which has been amended several times. "The God of the Bible is our only hope".

Why it matters: Trump has received widespread criticism for the visit, including from clergy members at the church and even some Republican lawmakers.

But among religious leaders, Graham and Jeffress appeared to be in the minority.

He said, "It's only the other side that didn't like it". "In so doing, he used a church building and the Holy Bible for partisan political purposes".

"A country is crying out for leadership, leadership that can unite us, leadership that brings us together, leadership that can recognize pain and deep grief of communities that have had a knee on their neck for a long time", Biden said.

Left-leaning media have criticized Biden for his alliances with pro-segregation Democrats during his early years in the U.S. Senate, a time Biden has fondly recalled as one of "some civility" in the Senate.

"I was literally helping wipe away tears in people's eyes and tried to tend to them and help them on the grounds and suddenly the police were pushing us back", former St. John's rector Rev. Gini Gerbasi told CNN on Tuesday. "Let me be clear". A church is not a photo op. "And God is not a plaything". "That burning churches are not what America's about".

Former NBA MVP Wes Unseld dies at 74
He resigned following the 1994 season, finishing with a 202-345 coaching record, and became the team's general manager in 1996. As a player, Unseld seemed to have been chiseled from a block of granite, with a stoic demeanor and an iron resolve to win.

In a Monday address in the Rose Garden, he called on governors to ramp up the National Guard presence to tamp down the protests.

In April, Trump completed his third periodic physical exam, said Dr. Sean Conley in a memo, which came after the president said he was taking the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine last month as a precaution against the novel coronavirus.

Trump's critics said he used tear gas to clear people near the church protesting the death of George Floyd, which the United States Park Police (USPP) denied.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) - citing human rights protections shielded by global chemical weapons law - later called for investigations into the tear-gassing of protesters to set the table for Trump's photo op.

"You just don't do that, Mr. President", Robertson said on his television show Tuesday.

He was also angry about the news coverage revealing he had been rushed to the White House bunker during Friday's protests. According to the Associated Press, the president spent almost an hour in the bunker, which was designed for use in emergencies like terrorist attacks.

"It was a false report", Trump said.

"I promise you this", Biden stated, "I won't site visitors in worry and division".

It was much more for the inspection.
