NYC Mayor de Blasio Blames Trump for Riots As Other Democrats Pile On

New York City Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio is blaming President Trump for the riots sweeping the country.

During a press briefing, de Blasio said the president is responsible for creating an environment of racial tension.

de Blasio said, “there’s been an uptick in tension, hatred and division since he came along.”

de Blasio is not alone in his criticism of President Trump over the past few days.

Chicago Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot ripped into the president for his Tweets about the riots that followed the tragic death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Lightfoot dropped the F-bomb in a message to President Trump.

She said, “It begins with ‘f’ and ends with ‘you.'”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) commented on the president’s Tweets on ABC News’ “This Week.”

Pelosi said, “I’m not paying too much attention to what the president says.”

Minnesota Democrat Representative Ilhan Omar also criticized the president over a lack of leadership on his part.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottoms encouraged President Trump not to speak about the riots and should “… just be quiet.”

Bottoms made her comments about the president on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

She added, “This is like Charlottesville all over again. He speaks and he makes it worse.”

It’s clear Democrats and their media allies are trying their best to exploit the senseless death of George Floyd in an effort to damage President Trump.

Unfortunately, the politicization of Floyd’s death distracts the nation from the horrible incident.
