Donald Trump mocked George Floyd’s death during a speech about job numbers, and many people are mad. During the speech Trump says he hopes George Floyd is looking down and saying it’s great thing that they’re reopening the economy with great employment rates. To most people it’s crazy the Donald Trump would use George Floyd’s death as a talking about about reopening the economy.
Although Donald Trump probably thought what he said was a form of endearment towards George Floyd, the reality is that most people feel it was very disrespectful. It’s almost like Trump is saying people sad about George Floyd’s death should be happy at the job numbers of the economy reopening.
For a president that has had many strange moments during speeches, Donald Trump mocking George Floyd’s death by saying he is happy about the job numbers of the reopened economy might be at the top of the list.
