Trump Promises Solution To Minneapolis : President Trump is blaming Minneapolis mayor Jacob Frey for the rioting in Minneapolis. He watched in horror as the city continues to burn and the mayor continues to do nothing. Trump Tweeted :
I can’t stand back & watch this happen to a great American City, Minneapolis. A total lack of leadership. Either the very weak Radical Left Mayor, Jacob Frey, get his act together and bring the City under control, or I will send in the National Guard & get the job done right…..
…These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!
The riots have continued to escalate. Protesters even started fire to a police precinct earlier in the night that had been evacuated. Police were not present for much of Thursday nights riots.
