During the Trump campaign rally in Tulsa on Saturday, President Donald Trump’s son Eric Trump called Black Lives Matter protesters “animals”.
Eric Trump told supporters that there is no family other than the Trumps who will work harder for the people, he said they will protect “the moral fabric of the country”.
He continued to say, “Because when you watch the nonsense on TV, when you see these animals literally taking over our cities, burning down churches, this isn’t America. That’s not what Americans do.”Also Read–Audio of concerned dispatcher released by Minneapolis police in George Floyd case
He seemed to be referring to the small fire that was set in the first few days after George Floyd, an African American man, was killed by a white police officer. The fire was set in the basement of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Washington. The fire was quickly set extinguished without causing damage.
Eric Trump further said this behaviour is not supported in America and the protesters “represent the smallest fraction of our society”.
