Look What Waters And Pelosi Are Blaming Trump For Now
There are protests all across the country some more violent than others. These protests are over the death of George Floyd and the response to it. Pelosi and Water are of course taking this opportunity to come after the president as they never seem to let a tragedy go to waste.
Rep Maxine Waters claims Trump's actions have somehow made police "nastier." She said as much during an interview on MSNBC.
"This president has certainly been responsible for dog-whistling for much of that constituency that empowers him and tells them get tough and he tells police officers to be rough on those that they arrest. He has basically undermined John Lewis, one of our civil rights leaders in Congress, and talking about his district by basically saying we live in rat holes. He has disparaged blacks in so many ways."
"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."
Pelosi also bashed Trump claiming he was adding fuel to the fire when it comes to these protests.
"The president of the United States should bring dignity to the office he serves. He should be a unifying force in our country. We have seen that with Democratic and Republican presidents all along. They have seen their responsibility to be the president of the United States to unify our country. And not to fuel the flame, not to fuel the flame."
"And I think to take his bait time and time again is just a gift to him because he always wants to divert attention from the cause of response was rather than describe it in his own terms."
But Trump is not against Americans, He even explained that he is for peaceful protest as it is the right of every American.
"My Administration will always stand against violence, mayhem, and disorder.
We will stand with the family of George Floyd, with the peaceful protestors, and with every law-abiding citizen who wants decency, civility, safety, and security." pic.twitter.com/Wxk6qmBR69

Nowhere does he say he is for violence as Waters believes and he even talks about Americans coming together to make a more just society, which is a pretty unifying statement... These Dems are just trying to demonize the president as per usual.
