Trump calls improved jobs numbers 'great day' for George Floyd

Trump calls improved jobs numbers 'great day' for George Floyd
As he touted surprising new jobless numbers showing unemployment had improved in May despite getting worse as predicted, President Donald Trump on Friday said he hoped George Floyd was “looking down” from heaven “and saying, ‘This is a great thing happening for our country.’”

Trump is a sadist. He knew that comment would cause pain.

Suggesting a black man murdered by a white police officer is in heaven looking down approvingly on the work of a racist president who has been denouncing police brutality protesters as “thugs” and “terrorists” is some upper-level white supremacy, IMHO. - Rex Huppke

When asked for his thoughts on videos from the night before of officers bludgeoning demonstrators protesting police brutality for staying out past the city’s 8 p.m. curfew in Brooklyn and Manhattan, the governor said, “That’s not a fact. They don’t do that."

Committed voter fraud to vote for a fraud
Donald Trump has made unfounded accusations of widespread voter fraud a centerpiece of his presidency, as well as his reelection campaign. He claimed millions of people voted illegally in 2016, created an inept committee to investigate voter fraud, and now opposes mail-in voting, claiming it’s inherently fraudulent.
Now it appears that the president himself committed voter fraud.
