President Trump retweeted a video Friday of right-wing commentators Glenn Beck and Candace Owens attacking the status of George Floyd.
“The truth that he has been held up as a martyr sickens me,” Owens advised Beck within the footage. “George Floyd was not a great particular person.”
As mass protests rocked the nation for yet one more day, the Trump retweet amplified the message to a worldwide viewers and his 81.eight million Twitter followers.
Beck and Owens then delved into Floyd’s prolonged legal report, which included time behind bars. Floyd’s post-mortem report revealed he had each fentanyl and methamphetamine in his system on the time of his demise.
“Is that this actually the man that Black America … is that this the image of Black America right now?” Beck puzzled, although including that Floyd’s therapy by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin had been improper.
“I don’t care WHAT George Floyd did. The officer ought to have by no means handled him like that and killed him!” Beck wrote in a tweet sharing the video.
