Sen. Ed Markey says ’scum’ Trump is ’fueling racist hate’ and violent protests

Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) has lashed out at Trump, calling him ’scum’ and accusing him of ’fueling’ racism and hatred in America amid protests. The tweet is among some of the harshest criticism from lawmakers Trump has taken thus far. The president, though, has tweeted in support of Floyd’s family but most of his statements have been in encouragement of a tougher response against the demonstrations

Wow you got a soundbite--such impressive leadership. You're 73 and been on the government teat for 40+ years; please do everyone a solid and just retire.

How is Trump responsible for this? Sure. He’s not helping by tweeting but how is Trump responsible for the violence that is being PLANNED by anti-trump activists and FAR-LEFT terrorist organizations.

The media bending the truth and ramping people up is the issue. Trump is not the best but he is wayyyyyyyy better then the media or dems would ever say.

Trump is in no way responsible for any of this. He already put an investigation into that police department and is charging the officers involved. Dems meet to look in the mirror on this one and stop encouraging these riots. Peaceful assembly would gain much support as oppose to looting and killing people.

Communist Democrats (Antifa) leftists from out of town come to riot with other communist Communist Democrats (black lives matter) leftist in cities run by mostly Democrats, and somehow this guy wants you to think Trump is the problem... Trump should back off completely and let the chips fall where they may. These gun free democratic strongholds will burn to the ground and the people of this nation will realize that the Democrats never really cared about anything but more power.
