Trump Threatens To Send Military To Minneapolis With Green Light To Open Fire On Protesters Who Damage Property

As protests over the police killing of Minneapolis resident George Floyd intensify, President Donald Trump, who said very little throughout the week in response to Floyd’s death, fired off a tweet just after midnight threatening to send the U.S. military to occupy the city with a green light to open fire on demonstrators who damage property.

“I can’t stand back and watch this happen to a great American City, Minneapolis. A total lack of leadership,” Trump tweeted. “Either the very weak Radical Left Mayor, Jacob Frey, get his act together and bring the City under control, or I will send in the National Guard and get the job done right.”

“These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen,” Trump continued in a second tweet. “Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!”

Twitter deemed the latter tweet a violation of the platform’s rules against “glorifying violence” and placed it behind a public interest notice.

In response to the president’s attack, Frey said during a news conference that “Donald Trump knows nothing about the strength of Minneapolis.”

“Is this a difficult time period? Yes, but you better be damn sure we’re going to get through this,” Frey added.

Protesters and Floyd’s family are demanding murder charges for the four officers who were on the scene when Floyd was detained Monday for allegedly attempting to use a counterfeit $20 bill at a local grocery store. Video footage that emerged Tuesday morning shows now-former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin kneeling on the back of Floyd’s neck while ignoring the handcuffed man’s repeated pleas for his life.

If You Thought Kamala Harris Was Tough On Brett Kavanaugh, Just Wait Until She Debates Mike Pence

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Tuesday selected Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) as his running mate. Following the news of Biden’s selection, MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace called into her network while on vacation to point out that Harris will mop the floor with Vice President Mike Pence during debates.

“The other piece of reporting I’ve picked up in the past week was from the Trump team, that from their viewpoint, because Donald Trump has no capacity to understand that this is the selection of a person to run the government with the president, he only saw this in terms of casting for the night of primetime coverage that is the vice presidential debate, and this was the pick that scared them the most,” Wallace told MSNBC’s Brian Williams.

“They thought she would more than go toe-to-toe with [Mike] Pence, they thought she could chew him up and spit him out and pointed to her cross-examination of one Bill Barr,” she explained.

“I don’t know that there’s a better debater or questioner on the political field right now,” Wallace said. Her skill-set is unmatched in terms much being able to articulate an argument, to patiently wait to make her point and look at the argument that the democratic ticket has to make.”
