After a weekend of massive peaceful protests around the country, White House officials are currently deliberating a plan for President Donald Trump to address the nation this week on issues related to race and national unity, as Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson hinted in an interview with CNN on Sunday and a senior administration official said was under serious consideration.
Many allies of the President spent the last week distraught as they watched Trump fumble his response to the police killing of George Floyd, only to follow his perceived silence on the resulting racial tensions with a federal law enforcement crackdown on the protesters near his fortified doorstep.
Aides and allies were not comforted by the backlash over his decision to have federal officers aggressively clear Lafayette Park in front of the White House to facilitate a widely-panned attempt at a photo-op in front of St. John’s Church. And the rest of the week continued on a downward spiral, as protests across the country grew and Trump faced an onslaught of well-known conservatives, generals and former Trump administration officials who excoriated his response and called for new leadership come November.
Carson suggested during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union” that the President this week would further address Floyd’s killing and the tensions it exposed.
“I believe you’re going to be hearing from the President this week on this topic in some detail. And I would ask you maybe to reserve judgment until after that time,” Carson said.
The idea of having the biggest racist in the country attempt to give a speech about race relations in this country sounds like an inspired thought from a comedy writer, a kind of SNL skit on steroids if you will.
I mean we know that Trump will screw this up, and the only mystery his how big of a train wreck will it be?
Keep in mind that this is the man who recently claimed that the murdered George Floyd would be looking down with admiration over how well the economy was doing, can you even imagine what an entire speech about race will devolve into?
I would imagine that all over the country there are comedy show writers on their hands and knees praying that Trump will go through with this.
