Maxine Waters Blame Trump For George Floyd’s Death
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is not done with her tirade against President Donald Trump in the middle of the unrest that’s going on all over the country over the killing of George Floyd. Now, she’s just blaming the President for Floyd’s death.
Appearing on MSNBC on Saturday, Waters said that Trump has emboldened the racists which have inspired them in their attacks and that he has continuously disparaged blacks all the time. The host of the show asked her a leading question and he was the one who actually first insinuated that Trump is somehow at fault for what is happening.
“All that stuff about loving blacks is so disingenuous. Nobody believes that. He’s such a liar. He cannot be trusted. And yes, I think he has emboldened those who are racist. He’s emboldened police officers to be nastier, tough, to do things like the chokehold. I believe all of that,” said Waters. Her blaming Trump for the killing of a black man isn’t surprising since the Democrats have been blaming and accusing the President of almost everything bad that has been happening to the country.
In the meantime, Waters is not condemning the rampant lawlessness that is happening in different cities across the country. The so-called protests have now turned into riots with vandals starting fires and looting businesses in different cities. A police precinct was burned down in Minneapolis, near where the incident with Floyd took place. The Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media are downplaying the crime in the streets that have been ongoing.
Other Democrats like AOC have come out in support of the rioters, reminding them to do social distancing, while not condemning any of the acts of looting and burning that the Antifa protesters have been committing.
