President Trump Delivers Remarks on Floyd Death

Washington, DC...Thank you very much. My fellow Americans: My first and highest duty as President is to defend our great country and the American people. I swore an oath to uphold the laws of our nation, and that is exactly what I will do. All Americans were rightly sickened and revolted by the brutal death of George Floyd. My administration is fully committed that, for George and his family, justice will be served. He will not have died in vain. But we cannot allow the righteous cries and peaceful protesters to be drowned out by an angry mob. The biggest victims of the rioting are peace-loving citizens in our poorest communities, and as their President, I will fight to keep them safe. I will fight to protect you. I am your President of law and order, and an ally of all peaceful protesters.





But in recent days, our nation has been gripped by professional anarchists, violent mobs, arsonists, looters, criminals, rioters, Antifa, and others. A number of state and local governments have failed to take necessary action to safeguard their residents. Innocent people have been savagely beaten, like the young man in Dallas, Texas, who was left dying on the street, or the woman in Upstate New York viciously attacked by dangerous thugs.

Small-business owners have seen their dreams utterly destroyed. New York’s Finest have been hit in the face with bricks. Brave nurses, who have battled the virus, are afraid to leave their homes. A police precinct station has been overrun. Here in the nation’s capital, the Lincoln Memorial and the World War Two Memorial have been vandalized. One of our most historic churches was set ablaze. A federal officer in California, an African American enforcement hero, was shot and killed.

These are not acts of peaceful protest. These are acts of domestic terror. The destruction of innocent life and the spilling of innocent blood is an offense to humanity and a crime against God.

America needs creation, not destruction; cooperation, not contempt; security, not anarchy; healing, not hatred; justice, not chaos. This is our mission, and we will succeed. One hundred percent, we will succeed. Our country always wins.

That is why I am taking immediate presidential action to stop the violence and restore security and safety in America. I am mobilizing all available federal resources — civilian and military — to stop the rioting and looting, to end the destruction and arson, and to protect the rights of law-abiding Americans, including your Second Amendment rights. Therefore, the following measures are going into effect immediately:

First, we are ending the riots and lawlessness that has spread throughout our country. We will end it now. Today, I have strongly recommended to every governor to deploy the National Guard in sufficient numbers that we dominate the streets. Mayors and governors must establish an overwhelming law enforcement presence until the violence has been quelled.

If a city or a state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them.

I am also taking swift and decisive action to protect our great capital, Washington, D.C. What happened in this city last night was a total disgrace. As we speak, I am dispatching thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel, and law enforcement officers to stop the rioting, looting, vandalism, assaults, and the wanton destruction of property.

We are putting everybody on warning: Our seven o’clock curfew will be strictly enforced. Those who threaten innocent life and property will be arrested, detained, and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

I want the organizers of this terror to be on notice that you will face severe criminal penalties and lengthy sentences in jail. This includes Antifa and others who are leading instigators of this violence.

One law and order — and that is what it is: one law. We have one beautiful law. And once that is restored and fully restored, we will help you, we will help your business, and we will help your family.

America is founded upon the rule of law. It is the foundation of our prosperity, our freedom, and our very way of life. But where there is no law, there is no opportunity. Where there is no justice, there is no liberty. Where there is no safety, there is no future.

We must never give in to anger or hatred. If malice or violence reigns, then none of us is free.

I take these actions today with firm resolve and with a true and passionate love for our country. By far, our greatest days lie ahead.

Thank you very much. And now I’m going to pay my respects to a very, very special place. Thank you very much.

Here’s the exact language of Trump’s threat from the brief press conference:

I have strongly recommended to every governor to deploy the National Guard in sufficient numbers that we dominate the streets. Mayors and governors must establish an overwhelming law enforcement presence until the violence has been quelled. If a city or state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them.

      President Trump is right in calling these destructive radials Thugs! These are not protests, it's a way for these Thugs to cause violence and looting. We need the military and the National Guard to wipe out these Thugs. They need to be hosed down with a firehouse sending them back to where they all came from.

      Bishop Budde was horrified that he held a bible and appeared at St. John's for the photo op. Find a clip of her speaking somewhere. Essentially, she said the church was not consulted and Trump's incendiary language was not in alignment with the peaceful teachings of Jesus. Trump holding up that bible was disgusting, like some kind of a trophy instead of the moral teachings if offers.

Sooo using federal US Military against US citizens regardless if that’s ok with state level government huh? That seems kinda dictator like. Trump blames Antifa and radical left for stirring sh!t up and then doesn’t the same thing in another way. Remember the US citizens are ultimately more powerful than any president or military. We don’t have to fight if we don’t want to. Trump has to go.

          The White Supremeists aren't coming here is correct. They are LEAVING here, joining up with other whities, and dispersing across the country to incite violence. We are now just left with their racist, long time resident, parents. Who taught them such good human values. This county is full of old, white, bigots. Look around they are everywhere. Many own longtime successful businesses. We are a county of bigots.

Meanwhile, Corona virus cases are on the rise - especially in areas where large groups have recently gathered as over Memorial Day weekend. People are going to get sick and die further and it's on Trump for inciting the violence. On a positive, between a tanked economy, C-19 and racial tension, he's done and he knows it. His rants are of a desperate man. Just a matter of if he's going to go peacefully.

We all just witnessed Trump have military officers attack a peaceful protest so he could go across the street for a short staged photo op.

Protest, but do it peacefully. Don’t take the bait. Chaos and violence, which Trump wants, to show his authoritarian power, is the goal of some who have other agendas. Show the world why we are different than other countries. Wait for November, and then vote this son of bitch out of office.
