Stacey Abrams Declares That People Who Support Trump Rallies Don’t Care About Black Lives
On Sunday, former Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams accused GOP supporters of not caring about black lives as President Donald Trump announced that he would resume his iconic MAGA rallies.
In a media appearance for ABC’s “This Week,” Abrams declared that the president is “attracting” people who do not care about black lives. The interview began when the show’s host, George Stephanopoulos, asked the former gubernatorial candidate whether the nation should stop renaming certain things due to its racist history.
The Democrat responded that to assume that words and dates do not have the power, and meanings associated with it should be considered an “infantile response.” Without a second thought, Abrams also lashed out against the Trump administration. She accused Trump of deliberately taking away trans protection laws, on the fourth anniversary of the Pulse nightclub murders.
“This same person who had to be convinced that having a rally would necessarily and has traditionally attracted people who do not care about black lives,” Abrams said. She continued that the president had hurt the black community for “going to have this rally in Tulsa at the site of a black massacre.” Abrams concluded that “this isn’t about growing up.”
Rather, the failed gubernatorial candidate claimed that it was about making the administration accountable and responsible for the “actions” that they did for the country. Finally, Abrams warned that a “day of reckoning” will come until the nation can finally make a “change.”
As Trump announced that he would resume his Presidential campaign, left-wing politicians like Abrams were quick to set propaganda against the president.
Even failed Democratic nominee and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton criticized the administration’s decision to resume MAGA rallies. In a Twitter post, Clinton responded to a coronavirus disclaimer to the attendees.
Clinton wrote that if Trump would only be handing out liability waivers, then he “shouldn’t be holding” any rallies. In the president’s upcoming rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Trump’s campaign team ensured that the attendees should acknowledge the possible health risks that are associated with the Chinese virus. It also explained that neither the president nor the event organizers should be held liable in case of an outbreak or an infection.

Clinton’s former rival, socialist Democrat Bernie Sanders, also lambasted Trump. In a Twitter post, Sanders claimed that the president’s desire to see 15,000 people cheering for him at his Florida convention is potentially endangering the lives of those that he would come in contact with.
Trump wants 15,000 delegates cheering him at his GOP convention in Florida. No social distancing. His rejection of medical advice endangers not only those there but those they come in contact with. Trump's a threat to the health and well-being of the country. He must be defeated.— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) June 11, 2020
The problem is that Sanders’s public safety concerns do not cover the massive gatherings of protesters over the death of 46-year-old George Floyd. In fact, Sanders himself had aired his encouragement and support to the protesters, praising the protests as the “pivotal” moment in history since World War II.
