US President Donald Trump threatens to unleash military to shoot protestors in Minneapolis state who are protesting against the police brutal killings of black people, the latest victim being George Floyd who died after an officer pressed his knee on his neck.
A group of angry protestors stormed the Minneapolis Police Department’s Third Precinct station after 11 P.m. on Thursday, spread fires after breaching the doors resulting in destruction of the facility forcing the police officers to abandon the station.
Friday morning, Donald Trump retaliates by threatening to deploy military to shoot these protestors he referred to as ‘thugs’.
“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,” said Trump.
Trump’s utterances comes after United Nations Human Rights chief Michelle Bachelet on Thursday, 28 May 2020 condemned the death of George Floyd in the hands of police and urged US authorities to take ”serious action” to stop the killings of unarmed African Americans.
