Biden: Trump Is Calling For Violence Against Citizens

The Guardian reports:

“This is not abstract: a black reporter was arrested while doing his job this morning, while the white police officer who killed George Floyd remains free. I am glad swift action was taken, but this, to me, says everything,” the presumptive Democratic nominee wrote in a tweet.

Biden said he would not “lift” Trump’s tweet that partly reads, “When looting starts, shooting starts.”

“I will not give him that amplification. But he is calling for violence against American citizens during a moment of pain for so many. I’m furious, and you should be too,” Biden wrote.
