Trump Invokes George Floyd While Hailing Jobs Report
President Trump briefly addressed the need for law enforcement officials to treat Americans fairly during remarks about a drop in unemployment. His comments were immediately criticized by Democrats.
We had the greatest economy in the history of our country. We had the greatest economy in the history of the world. And that strength let us get through this horrible pandemic. Equal justice under the law must mean that every American receives equal treatment in every encounter with law enforcement, regardless of race, color, gender or creed, they have to receive fair treatment from law enforcement. They have to receive it. We all saw what happened last week. We can’t let that happen. Hopefully George is looking down, right now, and saying, “This a great thing that’s happening for our country.” This is a great day for him. It’s a great day for everybody. It’s a great day for everybody. This is a great, great day in terms of equality.
