WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump has dismissed advice from allies urging him to tone down his rhetoric and held back so far on making a formal address to the nation as cities across the country faced another night of protest over the death of George Floyd.

As the roar of police helicopters and chanting crowds reverberated through the White House grounds for a third night, Trump again opted against making prime-time remarks from the Oval Office, as other presidents have done in times of domestic crisis.

Instead, he spent the day on Twitter, doubling down on a strategy of calling for stronger police tactics, a move critics say is only worsening the situation.

Arrogance, ignorance and narcissism. Unfortunately you put peple into power, in an oval office or with a badge and these tendencies bloom. So disappointed with the ones who are supposed to set the lead. Our country is a joke right now. 💔

But racism isn't ignorance - it's racism. So that doesn't work.

Racists know EXACTLY what they are doing. Some of them are VERY smart. In 2020 USA, calling racists ignorant is a tired old cliche that gives them a pass.

You give them too much credit and no one is giving them a pass.

Well, it´s only four more years, not ten or 20 years like in some other countries since your system only allows two terms/eight years.

Excuse me, but I'm old, and I'm tired of other white people saying racists are ignorant for the last 60 fucking years. I don't know you personally, and I am not accusing you of giving racists a pass. But that IS a cliche I've heard all my life, even from family and people I love very much, but I am NOT buying the "ignorance" shuffle. That blanket excuse needs to GO.

People need to do away with these [false] racial supremacy doctrines & ideas. I'm 100% against white supremacy and I, as a black man who demands human AND civil rights, cannot co-sign with black supremacy neither.

What a weak, cowardly asshat! Did Johnson even do that during the anti-war protests?

He is *that* afraid of peaceful protesters? Or.... is he trying to optically respond to non-violence like it is violence in order to justify his military bullshit?

Jane Elliot has been teaching about racism n this country for years, and caught a lot of threats because of it. I recently missed her interview with Jimmy Fallon and wish she would do more with the media , (virtually due to the pandemic) with the current climate that’s going on in the country right now
now.

Exactly, blaming it on ignorance is give them a pass. Racism is that racism, and not always is just ignorance, they know what they're doing and their motivayions are clear.

Yeah, after 400 years of dominance through racism in this country - it ain't ignorance. It's just an easy way to dismiss it, especially when it's your relatives you're dismissing. If you go further than that, you actually have to think and react.

And even Nixon & Reagan NEVER built a fence wall around themselves. And both former U.S. Presidents pissed off plenty of their respected non-fans all the time.
