tRump will be happy to know that after he comes out of office in January and New York prosecutes him on State charges which a new POTUS cannot pardon him of.

 

Beware of the Ides of March.!!!!! Besides, he has no intention on going gently into the night.

Okay, so where were the rights of the African American Man that was executed by police?

Besides, 4 on 1 on a prone man, by police, was a very cowardly act, not the act of those that anyone would want to be “Keeping the Peace” in our cities!

We have something called a criminal justice system, you know? Even criminals deserve rights.

Yep, few Washington Republicans or Governors will stand up to tRump, a few will but not many. McConnell is partly responsible, if he would stand up to tRump perhaps more Republicans would follow.

Protests are going on all across America for a minority in police forces across America killing and assaulting black men and women at a rate far greater than whites. Instead of tRump addressing that he attacks the governors of all of those states asking them to take even stronger police actions, telling them "you have to dominate". Then he calls them "weak" and "fools". He is on the attack because of this and because of his botched handling of the coronavirus, both are hurting him politically.  Here is another report of this:

Trump calls governors facing unrest 'weak' and 'fools,' urges stronger police tactics

"You have to dominate. If you don’t dominate, you’re wasting your time,” the president said, according to a person listening to a White House call with the nation's governors.

WASHINGTON —

 

President Donald Trump on Monday lashed out at governors during a White House videoconference, telling them that “most of you are weak” after states grappled with another night of anger and unrest following the killing of George Floyd last week.

 

According to a source on the call, Trump was “annoyed” with the governors for their response to the protests and urged law enforcement to crack down and make more arrests. "You’ve got to arrest people, you have to track people, you have to put them in jail for 10 years and you’ll never see this stuff again,” Trump said, according to the source.

 

Trump was described by one person on the call as “losing it,” with another saying the president called the governors “fools” and expressed anger with Democratic mayors in particular over the protests and unrest ravaging cities nationwide.

 

"You have to dominate. If you don’t dominate, you’re wasting your time,” the president said, according to a person listening in.

The president also called the initial response in Minneapolis “weak and pathetic” and said that protestors have likely spread out to other cities. The person said Trump seemed obsessed with "antifa," or anti-fascists, and Occupy Wall Street, which he said was handled well by comparison and “just went away one day.”

 

During the call, Trump claimed to have intelligence showing who the “bad actors” and professional instigators are, though he did not elaborate.

Trump also asked states to enact laws against flag burning in what the source described it as “a rant."

The White House billed the event as a “video teleconference with governors, law enforcement, and national security officials on keeping American communities safe.”

 

Trump’s response to the unrest has been to call for stronger law enforcement rather than calling for calm or addressing the concerns about police brutality and racism that many protestors say drove them to come out. Critics say an escalation in force would exacerbate already high tensions between protestors and the police.

After another night of protests led to fires and vandalism blocks from the White House, Trump spent Monday morning on Twitter blaming the unrest on antifa and accusing staffers of former Vice President Joe Biden of “working to get the anarchists out of jail.”

Trump had no public events scheduled for Monday, after not appearing in public on Sunday.

 

Trump’s advisers have been divided over what role the president should take in responding to the widest unrest the country has seen in decades. Some say the president should focus his message on Floyd, the black man who died last week at the hands of Minneapolis police, and urge calm.

Others say the top priority is stopping the violence and looting that have taken place in some areas, arguing that the best path to that end is strong police tactics, not presidential speeches.

Perhaps Trump should quit inflaming the situation with his inflammatory tweets instead of hiding in a bunker under the White House?  He is contributing to the problem.

I  interpret his words to mean that, He wants to see more blood on the streets in this country. and to squash any protest that he doesn't like. 
The world is now mourning the death of a man that represent the endemic racism that exists in the US.
