    Angry Donald Trump calls for tougher approach against George Floyd protests

    Angry Donald Trump calls for tougher approach against George Floyd protests | US news | The Guardian

    President rants at governors, police and security officials

    Law enforcement must ‘dominate’ or ‘look like a bunch of jerks’


    Donald Trump has urged governors, law enforcement officials and national security officials to take a more forceful approach in responding to protests around the country sparked by the death of George Floyd.

    The president held a call with officials on Monday morning, after a week of protests and riots around the US. On the call, the president urged governors and law enforcement officials to “dominate” the protesters, according to a source who listened in.

    Trump, the source said, repeatedly urged the participants to act more forcefully, and also urged the officials and governors not to be weak.

    According to a second official with knowledge of the call, the president said governors need to be much tougher. This source said the president warned them against being “overridden” and argued that if they did not dominate protesters, “you’re wasting your time, they are gonna run over you, you’re going to look like a bunch of jerks.”

    Is he ever not angry? He looks miserable in almost every picture. Somebody send him a porn star to pay off before he loses it.

    Trump is definitely desperate at this point. He has no idea how to respond to this.

    Trump has never looked to anyone for anything, thus he has no idea what leadership looks like.

    Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add within the limits of the law, because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.--Thomas Jefferson

    Re: Angry Donald Trump calls for tougher approach against George Floyd protests

    The violence is not the root problem, it's a symptom. We need leadership that understands this. I recall people protesting peacefully about 3 years ago after Michael Brown was killed, and instead of being listened to, they were ridiculed for being un-American and anti-military. The President even called them "sonsofbitches." The message got ignored and they were verbally attacked for how the message was being communicated instead. Our leadership needs to recognize that excessive police force is a systemic problem nationwide, not just a few isolated incidents by a few bad apples. Meaningful changes like better hiring policies, better training, and better checks & balances would be a good start.
