The riots in Minneapolis, sparked by the death of George Floyd, have spiraled out of control.
For days, hundreds have been burning and looting local businesses. Even a police precinct has been set on fire.
What’s worse, it does not appear that the mayor is doing anything to get it under control. So, the president is stepping in to help.
From Fox News:
President Trump took to Twitter early Friday to vow military support for the governor of Minnesota after another night of violent protest in Minneapolis, which included a police station being overrun and set on fire.
President Trump voiced his concerns over the Minneapolis riots. He has promised to send the National Guard to intervene if the mayor refuses to do anything.
He called out Mayor Frey, saying the city is suffering because of his “total lack of leadership.” In fact, the riots have not died down after two days. It appears they may get worse.
Trump has already made good on his promise, announcing that the National Guard arrived this morning. He is directing the state governor to oversee a restoration to peace.
The National Guard has arrived on the scene. They are in Minneapolis and fully prepared. George Floyd will not have died in vain. Respect his memory!!!
The circumstances surrounding George Floyd’s death are tragic and outrageous. All Americans are demanding justice.
And that’s just what has been happening. Even the DOJ and FBI are conducting investigations so that those responsible will be held accountable.
So, why are there riots? Peaceful protests are one thing. We see those all the time.
But this is sheer chaos. People are burning down local businesses as if they had anything to do with Floyd’s tragic end.
How will destroying their city bring justice for Floyd and his family? Evidence suggests these riots are being orchestrated by political groups.
Which might explain why the liberal mayor of Minneapolis refuses to get involved. As businesses burn and lives are put in danger, Frey twiddles his thumbs.
President Trump has been outspoken in bringing justice to those who killed George Floyd. In fact, he is the one who directed the FBI and DOJ to start investigations.
Now, he is making sure this American city isn’t destroyed by leftist groups that just want the world to burn.
Is it any wonder this has flared up, in the months leading up to the election? Let’s not pretend they’re not related.
The only person who appears to be trying to end this chaos is the president.
SHARE if you think Trump should step in and help.
