WATCH: Black Lives Matter protesters interrupt Hillary’s campaign speech in Atlanta

Published

on

Despite meeting recently with Black Lives Matters leaders, a group of BLM activists interrupted Hillary Clinton as she prepared to give her planned remarks in Atlanta today.

As the former Secretary of State began to speak, a group of eight protesters entered between Clinton and the crowd, clapping their hands and chanting.

Clinton was expected to call for legislation banning racial profiling by law enforcement, and she attempted to shout over the protesters saying, “My friends, I’m going to get to some very important points, that black lives do matter,” to the cheers of the crowd.

The protesters were soon drowned out by the predominately black audience — who came to hear her speak — with chants of “Hillary. Hillary.”

Congressman and civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) also attempted to ask the protesters to allow Clinton to speak.

As the protesters continued to interrupt, the crowd then began chanting, “Let her talk.”

"We should have [European Central Bank President Mario] Draghi instead of our Fed person!" the president said. "We have a man who doesn't do anything for us!"

Bartiromo then noted that Powell has made a point of preserving the Federal Reserve's political independence by refusing to obey the president's orders to lower rates, but Trump replied that Powell should just do what he's told.

Published

In a bizarre interview on Fox Business on Wednesday morning, President Donald Trump attacked former special counsel Robert Mueller, accusing him of "terminating" the text messages of FBI agents to conceal anti-Trump bias by the bureau.

"You know what I used to say we will find out, they spied on my campaign, and when you look at somebody saying, listen she is going to win but if she doesn’t we have an insurance policy," said Trump. "You know what insurance policy is? An insurance policy to get him out of office. These are sick people, two lovers the two pathetic lovers, two lovebirds sung like nobody ever sung."

President Donald Trump on Wednesday accused Twitter of "censoring" him in an angry rant on Fox Business.

During an interview with Fox Business's Maria Bartiromo, the president said that Twitter was intentionally lowering his follower count, which he claimed made it "harder for me to get out the message."

Even though Trump currently has more than 61 million people following him on Twitter, he claimed that he should have much more and said that Twitter executives were to blame.

"These people are all Democrats, it's totally biased towards Democrats," the president fumed. "If I announced tomorrow that I was a liberal Democrat i would pick up 5,000 followers!"
