"Truly shameful" - Gov. Cuomo criticizes Trump's response to George Floyd protesters
"The protesters themselves have been making a very valid point: Wake up America, we're killing people based on the color of their skin. And it is a real issue," Governor Cuomo said on CNN's Erin Burnett OutFront Monday.
During an interview with NY1 News on Monday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) announced that the city would implement a curfew on Tuesday that starts at 8 p.m., three hours earlier than Monday’s 11 p.m. curfew, and said that the city of New York is “fully under control and overwhelmingly calm and peaceful.”
“Rioters, looters, and domestic terrorists have attacked our American Republic and our ideals which provides ample room for peaceful assembly and lawful expression of our freedom of speech. When Americans feel aggrieved by either government action or inaction, they have the right to express their disapprobation. They do not, however, have the right to attack other people, steal, or destroy property."
“President Trump is correct when he abjures the lack of leadership in many cities and states around the nation. The mobs of anarchists and criminals who have lost sight of the reason for what were once peaceful protests, have sensed the lack of will in the political leaders in so many places. The images and videos from around the country over the past week have exposed many mayors and governors as weak and unwilling to enforce laws to protect their citizens.

I have been assured by left wing posters on ats that there is nothing to complain about, these were peaceful protests, if they get out of hand its all trump supporters, and the real problem we need to focus on was trump taking a photo at a church.
