[Ed. – When we’re lucky, circumstances provide a window into what things might have been like if history had turned out differently. The George Floyd killing and the aftermath are now revealing what an utter disaster this woman would have been had she become president.]
Former Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina said she cried at President Trump’s response to the protests.
Fiorina, a former CEO of Hewlett-Packard who ran against Trump for the GOP nomination in 2016, said the president’s reaction to peaceful protests has been disappointing.
“Like so many Americans, I cried last week as I watched white policemen murder George Floyd in broad daylight in front of witnesses. And I wept last night as I watched a President of the United States forcibly reject every plea for empathy and unifying leadership,” she tweeted Tuesday.
She said Trump failed to acknowledge and understand why protesters have taken to the streets en masse after George Floyd, an unarmed black man, died after a white Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck for more than 8 minutes.
