    Drama erupted last night after Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot blasted President Donald Trump in response to his tweet of the ongoing protests in Minneapolis.

    Mayor Lightfoot seems to have been angered by the president for calling protesters ‘THUGS’. On Twitter Trump tweeted “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.”

    The mayor termed Trump’s comments profoundly dangerous during a Friday News conference meant to discuss plans to reopen the city.

     

    “We must stand firm together and say no to this completely unacceptable issue no matter who is the speaker.

    For the last four days, protesters in Minneapolis have filled the streets following the death of George Floyd – a 46-year-old African American who died on Monday after a brutal arrest by the police. A video of the incident shows a white police officer with his knees on the deceased neck while he repeatedly complained he couldn’t breathe.

    The officer has since been fired and criminally charged with grade three murder while the other three officers have only been fired with no charges.
    In the cause of the protests, some protesters stormed Minneapolis police station and set it on fire that led the police officers inside to evacuate. In response to the incident, Donald Trump called the protesters “THUGS”.

    In response to Trumps’s tweet, Twitter issued a disclaimer to it and said that it was glorifying violence. But on Friday, Trump came out to clarify what he meant by his tweet and said the looters should not be allowed to draw out the voices of so many peaceful protesters.
