During an appearance on ABC News’ This Week, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was asked by George Stephanopoulos what President Donald Trump should be doing during the ongoing riots and protests over the killing of George Floyd by a white police officer in Minneapolis.
“The president of the United States should bring dignity to the office that he serves,” said Pelosi. “He should be a unifying force in our country.”
“We have seen that with democratic and republican presidents all along. They have seen their responsibility to be the president of the United States, to unify our country, and not to fuel the flame, not to fuel the flame.
“I think to take his bait time and time again is just a gift to him because he always wants to divert attention from what the cause of the response was.”
“I’m not paying too much attention to what the president says,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Trump tweets.
