Protesters converge on White House for second straight day
WASHINGTON (AP) — Hundreds of people converged on the White House for a second straight day to protest the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and President Donald Trump’s response.
Trump has belittled the protesters. In Florida on Saturday to watch the launch of a SpaceX rocket, he pledged to “stop mob violence.”
The protesters who gathered at Lafayette Park across from the White House shouted “Black Lives Matter” and ”I can’t breathe.” Floyd is the black man who died Monday after a police officer pressed his knee into his neck even after Floyd stopped moving and pleaded for air.
