The President of the United States of America praised the police force against journalists. At a rally in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, he called the violence a “beautiful spectacle.”
Sometimes they catch it. They grab a guy. ‘I am a journalist. I am a journalist. ‘ Get out of here. They threw it aside like it was a little packet of popcorn. Honestly when you see the shit we all must have taken so long … we don’t wanna do it. But when you see it, it’s really a beautiful sight, ”he says.
Donald Trump referred to the attacks journalists were targeting as they covered anti-racist protests sparked by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
