Trump unloaded on the nation’s weakling governors on Monday as he URGED them to CALL UP National Guard for show of force on city streets…
(by Half Dollar) There is only one person on this planet who can have his cake and eat it too.
From Fox News:
President Trump unloaded on governors in a phone call Monday over how they’ve responded to protests and riots across the country following the death of George Floyd, calling them “weak” and urging them to “dominate.”
“Most of you are weak,” Trump said. “You have to arrest people.”
“You have to dominate, if you don’t dominate you’re wasting your time,” he said, according to a senior staffer in a governor’s office who was listening to the call. “They’re going to run over you, you’re going to look like a bunch of jerks. You have to dominate.”
He urged cities like New York, Philadelphia and Los Angeles to take similar measures.
The president urged governors to call up the National Guard, crediting them for helping deescalate the situation in Minneapolis. He told the governors they were making themselves “look like fools” for not calling up more of the National Guard as a show for force on city streets.
This comes on the heels of President Trump calling on the nations’ Democrat governors and mayors to “get tough”:
Get tough Democrat Mayors and Governors. These people are ANARCHISTS. Call in our National Guard NOW. The World is watching and laughing at you and Sleepy Joe. Is this what America wants? NO!!!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 31, 2020
Of course, in 2014, well, it was Washington’s fault.
Trump’s words, not mine:
Our country is totally fractured and, with our weak leadership in Washington, you can expect Ferguson type riots and looting in other places— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 25, 2014
