DNC on Trump’s Remark on George Floyd
June 5, 2020
In response to Trump’s claim that George Floyd would be proud of a jobs report, DNC National Press Secretary Brandon Gassaway released the following statement:
“Trump’s claim is revolting, enraging, disrespectful — a slap in the face and a descent to the lowest possible level of discourse. Trump has no concern or regard for the feelings of anyone and will take every opportunity, even trampling on the memory of George Floyd, to commemorate a jobs report that shows fewer than half of Black adults currently have a job and that fully 21 million Amerians are unemployed.
“This is a president divorced from reality, severely lacking even an ounce of empathy or understanding, and fundamentally unable to heal our nation. As Trump celebrates, America continues to suffer from his failed leadership.”
