President Trump believes in protests that support his positions and his competency. The rest of America is on notice. Trump wants your free speech right stripped away from you, and his critics jailed for ten years for speaking out against him.
President Donald Trump told governors and mayors on a conference call that they must begin arresting protesters and putting them in jail for ten years to discourage protests. He wants to suspend protesters' rights of free speech, just like other fascist leaders around the world and throughout history.
During the conference with state leaders, Trump blasted them as “weak” for refusing to do so already and not bringing in the national guard to quell protesters.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Pritzker immediately told Trump he is “extraordinarily concerned about the rhetoric that’s been used” by him….
“It’s been inflammatory, and it’s not OK for that officer to choke George Floyd to death, but we have to call for calm… We have to have police reform called for. We’ve called out our National Guard and our State Police, but the rhetoric that’s coming out of the White House is making it worse. And I need to say that people are feeling real pain out there. And we’ve got to have national leadership in calling for calm and making sure that we’re addressing the concerns of the legitimate peaceful protestors. That will help us to bring order.”
Gov. Pritzker went on to tell President Trump his remarks are only making things worse.
Trump responded by trying to insult and criticize Pritzker…
“OK, well, thank you very much, J.B. I don’t like your rhetoric very much both because I watched your response to coronavirus, and I don’t like your rhetoric either. I think you could have done a much better job, frankly.”
Trump then told Pritzker the country needs “law and order.”
“If we don’t have law, we don’t have a country.”
The president then asked the governors:
“Why aren’t you prosecuting them?”
Trump likened the “movement” to that of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Trump said, adding...
“One day, somebody said that’s enough, and they just went and wiped them out.”
“It’s going to get worse and worse, just like Occupy Wall Street. It was a disaster.”
“And after that, everything was beautiful, and that was the last time we heard about it.”
Trump made no comments on the widespread police violence and murders that are increasingly being caught on video.
