Today at Michigan's State Capitol.— Bryan Newland (@RealBNewland) April 30, 2020
I'm old enough to remember when Black teenagers were beaten or shot for: carrying cigars, toy guns, breathing...
But please, carry on with your armed blockade of the seat of State government. pic.twitter.com/Nvhh8isRjQ
The Governor of Michigan should give a little, and put out the fire. These are very good people, but they are angry. They want their lives back again, safely! See them, talk to them, make a deal.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 1, 2020
I'll say what Donald Trump won't: The Confederate flag, swastikas, and other symbols of hate that have been used in these protests have no place in America. The president should encourage folks to follow Gov. Whitmer’s public health orders — not sow further discord and division. https://t.co/fZrHELiXVh— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) May 1, 2020
It would be great to have a president who believes "very good people" don't brandish confederate flags and swastikas again. https://t.co/0NDelmpXs9— Dana Nessel (@dananessel) May 1, 2020
