They don’t care what happens as long as they come out on top.
Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi along with Chuck Schumer recently issued a statement stating that President Trump’s recent announcement was the reason for the ongoing violence.
Trump recently announced that he would be helping to end the violent riots happening across the country.
Pelosi and Schumer then took it upon themselves to write a statement saying:
Across our country, Americans are protesting for an end to the pattern of racial injustice and brutality we saw most recently in the murder of George Floyd.
Yet, at a time when our country cries out for unification, this President is ripping it apart. Tear-gassing peaceful protestors without provocation just so that the President could pose for photos outside a church dishonors every value that faith teaches us.
We call upon the President, law enforcement and all entrusted with responsibility to respect the dignity and rights of all Americans. Together, we must insist on the truth that America must do much more to live up to its promise: the promise of liberty and justice for all, which so many have sacrificed for – from Dr. King to John Lewis to peaceful protestors on the streets today.
At this challenging time, our nation needs real leadership. The President’s continued fanning of the flames of discord, bigotry and violence is cowardly, weak and dangerous.
The statement says that they call upon the President for help, but then also slanders Trump calling him weak and cowardly.
What a way to ask for help. Read the full story here.
