President Barack Obama Reacts to George Floyd’s Murder & Protests going on in the country. #blacklivesmatter✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿. Black Lives Matter.
“It makes me feel as if this country’s going to get better.”
President Barack Obama says he’s encouraged by how many young people have been galvanized in recent days, saying they historically have been catalysts for progress.
Barack Obama, adopting a calm and less agressive tone than President Trump, said that the crisis was “unlike anything I have seen in my lifetime” and this present situation offered an opportunity to limit and control the police violence that would prompt a political “awakening” to unite the country around racial justice and police reform.
