“Let’s hope George looks down now and says this is a wonderful thing for our country,” Trump told Rose Garden on Friday, shortly after the argument that the economy was returning as a “rocket.”
“This is a wonderful day for him. It’s a wonderful day for everyone,” Trump said.
Trump’s comment and subsequent Twitter appearance, in which he promoted Beck’s interview with Owens in a tweet storm where he attacked his critics and promoted his supporters, once again showed the President’s intransigence and his weakness. to integrate with the experience of black Americans, for whom racism and police barbarism continue to occur on a daily basis.
The President’s observation of the “big day” was strange, not only because of the circumstances of Floyd’s death, but also because the financial news of the day also highlighted the persistent gap between white and black unemployment. In addition, it remains unclear whether the anger and energy of Floyd’s national protests will translate into tangible and long-term changes at the federal, state and local levels. A promising sign of progress: the Minneapolis City Council voted to ban chokeholds on Friday, a day after the Floyd monument.
Although the protests have attracted Americans of all races, Trump has refused to take part in any substantive discussions on policing other than deciding on Florida’s inhumane murder. Instead of publicly pushing for policy changes – or urging Republican lawmakers to do so – he literally ruled out the White House while glorifying the ability of the military and police to “dominate” the streets and defeat protesters.
His main concern, as always, is how the crisis affected him as he tried to present himself as president of law and order, while targeting perceived opponents from Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser to Alaska Senator Lisa Murkiswelse Ampoules, a Republican his actions this week.
Trump’s attempt to talk about Floyd on Friday took place during an event marking the 13.3% unemployment rate celebrations in May – a figure that economists expected to approach 20%. The President comments on the sharp inequality in the new data: the fact that black unemployment rose to 16.8% compared to white unemployment to 12.4%.
Democrat Joe Biden touched on this inequality when he responded to the president’s comments, making them awful.
“The last words of George Floyd – I can’t breathe. “I can’t breathe,” they told the nation, and honestly around the world, “Biden said Friday at Delaware State University, a historic black university in Dover, Delaware.
“In order for the President to try to put other words in George Floyd’s mouth, I honestly think he is disgusting.”
“The fact that it did this on the day of rising black unemployment, unemployment among Spaniards, rising youth unemployment, tells you everything you need to know about this man and what he really cares about,” Biden said.
Trump’s reluctance to commit
Trump’s reluctance to take over any area of the electorate beyond his own base, especially at a time when he has the opening to build bridges with troubled Americans, was underscored on Friday by his decision to operate outside the White House. and visit Maine, one of the less different situations
in the country,
during a week when the nation shouted for a debate on the treatment of racial divisions.
Reluctant, or perhaps incapable, of having difficult conversations with Americans on racial justice issues facing the United States, Trump played it safe in Maine on Friday – speaking in front of a mostly white audience at the 2nd Maine Congress, where in 1995 % of the population is white.
Trump won the 2nd District of Maine 51% to 41% of Hillary Clinton in 2016 after the region twice supported former President Barack Obama – despite losing the state as a whole. However, as Maine divides his electoral vote, Trump won an electoral vote for his victory in the 2nd District.
Democratic spokesman Jared Golden returned to the region in 2018 in the first use of the country’s ranking ballot for a race in the House, but with Trump back in the fall, the new lawmaker could have a competitive re-election.
Golden was the only Democrat to break his vote on the complaint, voting to convict the President of abuse of power, but not of obstructing Congress. The Cook Political Report ranks the race for re-election as a throw away
During Trump’s visit to Puritan medical products, he cited the handling of the pandemic and the “thousands” of lives he saved from his administration, as well as new financial personalities and his team’s efforts to fuel their expansion. American construction companies. The President has just referred to the protests at the national level as he called for support for his re-election campaign.
He made a vague reference at this time to be a “historic moment” amid comments about the pandemic.
“This is a very important moment for our country. You see what’s happening. But a lot of good things are happening,” Trump told Puritan on Friday afternoon. “But a very big thing happened today when we saw (economic) numbers that we have never seen before in the history of our country. Good time. Because people see this and say, ‘Hello, this country is wonderful.’
Trump’s growing isolation is even more striking, as polls show Biden, a former vice president, extending his lead over Trump in an investigation into the November race.

A new CNN Poll of Polls poll shows 51% of registered voters around the world support Biden, while 41% support Trump, a wider gap in favor of Biden than in April. The poll includes the five most recent national telephone polls that measure the views of registered voters, and three of the polls were conducted after Floyd’s assassination.

released on Friday found that 67% of Americans believe that Trump’s response to the protests has increased tensions, while 18% said he helped reduce tensions.
Opinion polls have covered a week of self-inflicted mistakes by Trump in response to the protests. What was most shocking was the shockingly authoritarian overthrow of Trump’s peaceful protesters with tobacco and pepper balls near the White House to pave the way for his embarrassing photo in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church (where a Bible flutters in the air that one could play a baseball or autobiography of baseball).
In Maine’s swaying state on Friday, Trump appeared to have no other message to persuade voters in November other than his remarks that the economy is recovering, recalling that the economy flourished before the Corona hit the United States, and the argument that the administration skillfully mitigated the effects of a virus that killed more than 100,000 Americans.
“We have saved thousands and thousands of lives,” Trump said.
During an afternoon roundtable with a commercial fisherman in Bangkok, Trump likened Mayan Janet Mills, a Democrat, to a “dictator” to open up the state’s economy too late in his view.
“All states are opening up, making a lot of money. That’s why we had good numbers today,” Trump said. “You have a governor who doesn’t know what he’s doing and he’s like a dictator, you know?”
Later in the day in Puritan, Trump described Maine as “an exceptional state” in its closed-door position to win the November 3 election.
“By the way, take this other half to go with Trump,” he said, referring to the other, more liberal area of the state, which he lost double-digitly. “You don’t have to worry,” he told the audience.
