Trump tweeted a threat to have looters shot. Twitter put a warning label on it - CNN

Minnesota Attorney General @keithellison  making the point on @CNN  that authorities cannot make a rush to prosecute in killing of George Floyd as it could damage case against officers involved and there is a history of officers not being convicted of police brutality.

The official White House account is tweeting this???

Minnesota Department of Public Safety: "The officer who has been identified as Derek Chauvin, in the death of Mr. Lloyd, has been taken into custody."

Trump just blew off what the WH has called a press conference. Clearly knew his cleanup tweet wasn’t going to fly.

Trump claims he didn't know the origin of "when the looting starts, the shooting starts." But then goes on to say he has heard the phrase “for a long time.” But then he mischaracterized the meaning of the phrase to say “when there’s looting, people get shot." Not what it means.

This gentleman appears to be recovering from being pepper sprayed. Woman on scene tells me he was pepper sprayed.

Just a sample of the sad scene we faced at the Trump rally in Tampa. I’m very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt. We should not treat our fellow Americans this way. The press is not the enemy.

Don’t believe the lies coming from the WH. Believe in our freedoms. Thank you all for your support. We won’t back down. ?? #1A 

We are not the enemy of the people. I am not your enemy. You are not my enemy. It is wrong to call your fellow Americans the enemy. We are all on the same team. We are all Americans.

I walked out of the end of that briefing because I am totally saddened by what just happened. Sarah Sanders was repeatedly given a chance to say the press is not the enemy and she wouldn't do it. Shameful.

Trump adviser working with WH officials on messaging for pandemic said Trump “took a gamble” that warmer weather would cause Coronavirus to dissipate, siding with aides pushing back on dire warnings coming from doctors. "He took a gamble and got it wrong,” adviser said.

I’ve just been denied entrance to the WH. Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit

Hannity is a propagandist for profit, peddling lies every night. He says he’s just a talk show host, not a journalist. But he’s injecting poison into the nation’s political bloodstream warping public attitudes about the press. I’m confident in the long run the truth will prevail.
