On Wednesday, at a press conference with the president of Finland, President Donald Trump went on an epic rant against the media, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), the city of San Francisco, the media, and another frequent target—-former President Barack Obama.
“They’ve been trying to impeach me from the day I got elected,” Trump said about Democrats. “I’ve been going through this for three years. They’ve been trying to impeach me from the day I got elected. You know what? They failed,” Trump said.
“This is the easiest one of all, because this one is based on one conversation. What about Obama’s conversation with the president of Russia where he says, ‘Hey, hey, tell Vlad I’ll talk to him after the election is over.”
Trump is ‘capable of reading’ a unifying message — but it’s doubtful he’ll mean it: Atlanta mayor
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms on Monday expressed little confidence that President Donald Trump could unify the nation at a time when the United States faces a triple threat of a recession, a pandemic, and civil unrest.
During an interview on CNN, host Alisyn Camerota asked Bottoms about actions Trump could possibly take to calm nerves and bring the country together.
"What about the debate that we are told is going on in the White House, as to whether or not the president should at this moment make some sort of national statement and call for unity?" she asked. "Would you like to see that?"
Kayleigh McEnany blames Antifa for Trump’s refusal to give Oval Office address on George Floyd
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Monday blamed Antifa for President Donald Trump's refusal to give an Oval Office address to the nation in the wake of George Floyd's apparent killing by Minneapolis police.
During an appearance on Fox & Friends, McEnany was asked if the president would try to heal the nation with a primetime address from the White House.
"This is the time that we look to our leader," Fox News host Steve Doocy explained. "We want this to stop. How does the president fix this?"
McEnany fixated on the rioting and looting that has taken place as a result of Floyd's death.
Racist cops, COVID-19 and unemployment are sending black Americans into ‘despair’: Charles Blow
The multiple crises hitting the United States at the moment are hitting the black community particularly hard, and New York Times columnist Charles Blow said on Monday that it's sending people into deep despair.
While appearing on CNN, Blow said that the nationwide protests that have erupted in the wake of George Floyd's killing last week were about much more than the death of just one man.
"You add on top of that all the other conditions, which you spoke before, about this happening in the middle of a pandemic," he said. "Everybody's at home. 40 million people have filed for unemployment. They don't know where their next check is coming from... The idea that [unemployment] is disproportionately affecting black people, that COVID is disproportionately affecting black people that, police brutality is disproportionately affecting black people, it's all part of the despair."
